I was 9 years old when my very first nephew was born.
I'll be completely honest with you in saying that I had hoped for a niece. I had so many doll clothes and dancing costumes that I was desperate to dress her up in, however when the chubby smiling face of my baby nephew appeared, I was a happy 1st time aunt.
And this happy auntie just got to attend said nephew's engagement party.
Hell.....surely I'm not that old!
