Contented Aunts and Uncles
Thank you to whoever started this community!
My husband (30) and I (29) are starting to think childfree is best because of us both having health issues. I have a sister (40 in September!) and brother (37); my husband has a brother (24 in July), but only my sister has children at this point. We also spoil cousins and friends' kids.
My sister has two children. Henry will be 12 in September and Olivia (Livi) turned 7 in March. They've had a tough past couple years, as my sister and their father separated and then divorced after 18 years of marriage. My sister has been dating someone with a daughter Henry's age for awhile, but isn't ready to get married again (she was 19 when she got married), something Henry can't comprehend. Also, I live in Colorado and they live in Wisconsin, so I don't get to see them as often as I'd like.
Henry is on a travelling soccer team this spring, which has been very exciting.
