He wants to marry me.
My dear, sweet nephew Ryan was sitting next to me at the dinner table the other day and asked, "Auntie, had you been married before?" I simply replied, "Nope, I haven't been married before". He was pensive for a moment and then said, "when I grow up, I'm gonna marry you". Bless his 5 year old heart! I then went on to explain that aunties and nephews don't marry each other, and proceeded to suggest other little girls he might marry when he grows up.
My sister and her family have been visiting from NC for the last week, and being with my nephews has been quite fun. I love how whenever I'm sitting down, Ryan, (who is quite tall for his age, and quite a tank) always asks if he can sit on my lap. It's pretty much adorable. I love being Auntie to my 6 nephews. I know I've bragged about them on countless occasions, but truly, they are very special to their Auntie Erin.
