Okay something has been bothering me for the last four years, and I have to get off my chest. Aunties and Uncles are just as important in a child’s life as grandparents, great-grandparents, Godparents, brothers, sisters, and cousins. And yet all things the related to a child’s extended family seem to be geared towards the family members mentioned above, now coming from a large family I know how important having a good extended support system is, and I am not trying to diminish the importance of the rolls of the other members of the family.
However, I am getting frustrated of having endless cards. clothes and picture frames that are perfect for other members of the extended family to give to the children and there is next to nothing for aunts and uncles. I am an Auntie to two of the most wonderful little girls you’d ever want to meet (though I am sure all aunties and uncles would say that) I would love nothing more then to be able to go and get a few picture frames and cards (Birthday, Halloween Christmas…) that say either “Niece” or “Auntie” on them, but they are nowhere to be found, or stores have them and there is only one or two to pick from, tough when you are buying for multiple children.
I know I can special order picture frames and such, but I just do not feel I should have to I don’t get why companies do not make these products
