Rules for Being an Aunt

#1. There are no rules.
Therefore, have at it.

That's my mantra and I'm sticking to it. We recently spent some time with our nieces from Texas and niece and nephew from Australia (and all of the appropriate parents, grandparents, etc. that go along with the kids). Woohoo! Some would call that a family reunion. Yes, the first time we've all been together. With far flung family, that's how it is.

I thought I'd do a few posts on the rules to being an aunt, mainly being, there are no rules. And to demonstrate...

Embrace the silly. That may include mustaches.
Mustached!

Demonstrate the silliness with all ages. Therefore, mustache the grandfather. Also known as my father.
Grandpa got mustached too

Double the score by adding a grillz sucker to the equation. Score!!!
Moustache + grillz = SCORE

And most importantly, as all good aunts know, take photos of all of this.

Being an aunt is probably the best part of my life. Good to see that you know how to enjoy it too.
