    Congrats on being an uncle! It's awesome!
    It's like having kids without all the mess ;-)

    And I like to view "unclehood/aunthood" like Wanda Sykes Hall:
    "We're up all night playing video games, drinking whiskey, and eating ice cream. What? They're not my kids."

    ;-)

    I'm an uncle five times over, have been since I was 14. I'm very close with all of my nephews and nieces. My two oldest nephews, who live close to me, are now old enough to be like peers and good friends to me. It's great.

    4 nephews, 2 nieces, and 3 grandkids. Though I'll be willing to bet there are guys on this site who can top that.

    Congrats, Atlazeia!

    I am an uncle too and I love every minute of it!
    My favorite with my nephew was when he asked me about
    "Tucker", my best friend's dog. I told him Tucker
    was in Evanston. He thought I said heaven. I could hear my sister in the background saying "oh no". I
    then clarified my answer by saying Tucker was outside
    the city. He went on to say proudly"I live in Chicago,
    Illinois!'...I responded with "Can you put your mommy
    back on the phone?" There was silence for about 5 seconds, and then he said "I love you" and passed the
    phone to my sister. After giving her the whole story,
    we both laughed hysterically. Congratulations! They
    are the best!

    Congratulations...altho I am not sure what for. You did absolutely nothing.

    I am an uncle of 5 grown nephews.

    My older brother has two sons. Both are great successes. The older one is in business. The younger one is finishing his PhD on full scholarship at Princeton. In fact, he has been named as one of the top 4 graduate students at Princeton. (Princeton picks the top four and gives them an extra stipend or something for their last year.) My brother hasnt had to pay a penny for this kid's college education. Everything...and I mean everything, food, travel, housing, tuition, books...has been paid for by the scholarships the kid has gotten.

    My younger brother has 3 sons. The oldest got the double whammy of introvert genes and is barely able to get along in life, altho he is smart. The youngest is almost special ed quality. The middle one might make something of himself, but so far, his track record is mixed.

    Thanks for all the congrats, you guys.

    Her name is Alexis. I think my sister and brother-in-law are still picking a middle name (it's Elizabeth for now).

    I can't wait 'til she grows up and I get to start spoiling her. icon_twisted.gif
