This Sunday, 23 July is Aunties Day 2017!
It's the day that you all get the chance to tell your Aunty/ Aunties how absolutely AWESOME they are AND how much you LOVE them. You also get the opportunity to remind them that you wouldn't be the brilliant person you are if it wasn't for them. If you think I'm exaggerating, think about this...
If it wasn't for your crazy aunty, how would you know that you shouldn't tell your grandma her bum looks big in those jeans?!
If it wasn't for your silly aunty, who would have given you farting slime for Christmas?
If it wasn't for your rich aunty, who would have paid for you to go to soccer camp/ sponsored you in the fun run/ bought all those fundraising chocolates?
If it wasn't for your aunty, your Mum/Dad wouldn't understand that siblings can be really annoying!
If it wasn't for your aunty, you would be stuck with the cranky old lady next door as your babysitter!
If it wasn't for your aunty, your grandma wouldn't know that your favourite colour is no longer blue!
If it wasn't for your aunty, your Mum would probably be sitting in the corner of her bedroom, rocking back and forth, staring.... because she would have no one to remind her that before she had kids she was cool and interesting to other adults and she knows more about the world than her three year old.
If it wasn't for your aunty, your dad would have no idea about daughters!! Like, you think he has no idea now, but he would know even less than nothing about being a girl!
If it wasn't for your aunty, you wouldn't have a fun adult woman in your life with disposable income, a sense of humour and your art framed on her wall.
If it wasn't for your aunty, you wouldn't learn anything about your parents' past life... including when they got a nose ring, crashed a car, dated a bad boy and swore at their parents.
If it wasn't for your aunty, you would have nothing to do this Sunday!!
Go on, tell that wonderful woman that your life would be a whole lot less fun without her!
