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…
