My niece Danielle is here with us and has been here for a week already. She is leaving tomorrow and I am already missing her. What a wonderful person to have around us.
Aunts and Uncles have an opportunity to relate to their niece in a way that her parents can't. Since she is not in their care, they do not feel the weighty responsibility of knowing that they are responsible for her upbringing. This leads to a different kind of relationship in which they can relate to their niece by appreciating her unique talents and gifts that make her so special. They can spend time spoiling her and treating her like the princess she is.
