Great Aunt… I’m not old enough for that!

It dawned on me tonight that when my nephew and his wife have their first child in a week or two, I’m going to be a great aunt.

Now, I’ve known about the new arrival for a while. I’ve kidded my sister about being a grandma… she’s in her mid-50s, so she’s old enough, I suppose. My mom is going to be a great-grandma… she’s in her late 70s, so she’s the right age for that title.

But it never dawned on me until now that I was going to be a “great aunt”.

I’m 35.

Great aunts are at least 80, and they’re supposed to be dead or something.

I’m too young for that title. Seriously.
