We'll put this one squarely in the "better her than me" category

If you had the privilege of being an aunt to the cutest nephew in the world...

Would you do everything you could to convince your sister to have another child?
Would you pray that she would get knocked up so you could be the favorite aunt to not one, but two of the cutest nephews in the world? (or a nephew and a niece-- I'll take a cute niece!)
Would you hide her birth control when you went to visit in the hopes she'd throw caution to the wind?
Would you talk a lot about how Molly and Casey enjoy Peyton, but think it would be cool to have TWO cousins?

OK, I didn't do any of those things... and yet, kat's lil sis is giving me another niece or nephew anyway! Lil sis is knocked up, with child, has a bun in the oven, is expecting and is due at the very end of this year or the very beginning of next year.

She will be the proud (and probably very harried) mother of two children just 15 months apart in age. I'm not sure if I should be telling her "congratulations" or "good luck." But, either way, I must get to work on all the awesome (and totally inappropriate) Aunt Busty gifts in the quest to retain my title of favorite aunt.

Definitely wish her congratulations and good luck. And then go buy the kids a drum set.

Welcome, Nickie. And thanks for the compliment-- we love anyone who tells us how funny we are. If you also like martinis, you are in the running to be our best friend (see? we don't require much!)

Stephanie: Ha! I like your idea (and will be implementing it immediately)

I do have to give you lots of credit for keeping a smile on your face and not missing a beat with your "congratulations" as I told you I was knocked up AGAIN through my sobs and tears. Someone wasn't listening when I said Peyton couldn't wait to have a cousin ("cousin" was not code for "sibling") Let's just see who will be doing the hiding of birth control on our upcoming visit to your house- ha, ha!

Congrats! I'm also the cool aunt in my family, so I know how good that feels. A lot better than squeezing another human being out through your vagina.
