Great excitement (me a little, Xfe overly so). Our nephew and niece are arriving today to stay with us - with their Mum and Dad - for a week.
Xfe is a patient and joyous Uncle. He's great. When I've had enough I just tell nephew LG to go show/tell/ask/bother his Uncle Xfe!
Nephew LG is almost 3 and niece LO almost 1 (so I expect she is a little less effort).
(Only joking - I am looking forward to seeing them. I haven't seen niece LO since just after she was born, and nephew LG for about 10 months or so).
My great pleasure is seeing how much happiness they bring Xfe. They really do.
