Only an Aunt 

imageI have never been a parent not even to a dog. However, I’ve had the honor of being an auntie to two amazing little minions, Riley Jade and Aly Harper. These past few days can only be described as an episode of Fuller House because of these two. My days start with a high-pitched, off-toned, “Good morning, Auntie Ashley!” and continue with games, burps, silly conversations, cartoons, fights, laughter, bed time routines, and prayers. I often find myself caught up in negotiation after negotiation from snacks to bed time stories. Although they suck the energy out of me like a Dementor’s Kiss I don’t feel the need to perform a Patronus Charm because Riley and Aly add more color, music, and smiles in this trying world.
