On Being an Uncle: A Charlie Guest Post

On Being an Uncle:  A Charlie Guest Post.

As many of you may recall, I became an uncle about nine months ago.

I gotta tell you, this job just gets better and better every week.

“We” are now eating some “solid” foods by “our self” sitting in the “high” chair.

It is very important for me to stay close by during mealtime to catch anything that hits the floor…  or happens to be shared by a swinging hand.  (And I must say, blueberry puffs with purple sweet potato are quite scrumptious.)

“We” are also now getting much more mobile, and “somebody” likes my squeaky toys, my ears, my tongue, my paws, and my nose.  “She” even takes my bones right out of my mouth.

But that’s okay.  It’s all in a day’s work of being an uncle.  And as long as she tosses me a blueberry puff or two, I’m totally fine with the rest of the havoc!

Mom says I am a really good uncle.  I like when she tells me that.  It is usually accompanied by a chin scratch or an ear rub or possibly a treat!  She really, really likes being a grandma, so I guess its a good thing I like being an uncle…

I think she is watching and learning, and when she is big enough too, we are going to have so much fun! thanks for the note about mom giving me an extra special treat today. She did! πŸ™‚ love charlie


  3. Uncle Charlie, you are the best four legged uncle ever! You are teaching your precious niece the art of sharing and the importance of cleaning up, this takes great patience and fortitude. It appears that you are more than up to the task…paws up to you! Lovely to hear from you.Thank-you for the update! P.S. Just yesterday, I was reading an older post that featured a marvelous painting of adorable you as a teddy bear-like toy. Fantabulous!!

  5. Awww Charlie, it has been awhile …I miss you. I guess you have been really busy being the coolest uncle on this planet. It sounds like you really are the coolest Uncle ever. Your mom is very lucky to have you help clean up any possible food mess from the floor, as we all know how those little hands do go swinging around. Love and Hugs Charlie xxx

  7. Ahhh…where have you been Charlie. I’m glad you learned one of the most important parts of being an uncle…stay close to the food source when they’re done eating. You’re going to really enjoy the next couple of years…:)
