I’m gonna be an aunt!

As I was going to the film and going out for dinner on Monday, I was told I’m gonna be an aunt in a little more than 5 months! And I couldn’t be more excited! Let me explain the details!

First of all, I don’t have any siblings. No brothers, no sisters, nothing whatsoever. I’m an only child. But Skye, how can you become an aunt then? Well, there’s someone who’s family to me, someone I consider my brother (from another mother), and because I kinda claimed him as such, and he’s one of my best friends in life, I can become the aunt to his expected child. He has a girlfriend, and they’re expecting a baby in July!

I also consider him my nephew, because we look so much alike, as many claim, but we prefer to see each other more or less like brother and sister. Disclaimer though, I don’t identify as a woman. I’m non-binary, but in this case, I told him I’ll allow being called sister and an aunt. I still look and sound like a woman after all. It’s kinda hard to explain, I understand that. Anyway, I also told him we’ll let the child call me auntie Skye until they’re old enough to figure out the world, and for me to then carefully explain what I am. Until then, I don’t want to confuse the child and let him grow up in a fantasy world, for as long as that’s possible.

He told me the news right after we were done eating pizza. He showed me the picture of an echo, and it took me a while to understand he was showing me an echo of his baby. He always told me he never wanted kids, and neither did I. That’s why we bonded so well because we both believed the world is a pretty fucked up place to bring new life into. But his girlfriend changed his mind, and I secretly don’t mind because I can now be an aunt and still be involved in a kid’s life without having one of my own. Because my own thoughts haven’t changed: I still don’t want a kid of my own.

They don’t know the gender yet as they want to wait until the baby is born, but I’ve put my guess on it being a boy. I secretly hope it’s gonna be a boy. Of course, I want the baby to be happy beyond everything and anything, but I can still secretly hope, right? Let’s face it, we all kinda do that when someone’s expecting. I don’t like kids per se, but boy am I gonna spoil this one. I’ve lost a colleague to suicide on Boxing Day, and a few friends too, and I feel like the arrival of this child couldn’t come at a better moment. I lost a precious soul in my life and will meet a new one.

I can’t wait to meet you, little one! Auntie Skye is very excited to meet you!
