I want to see my niece but not my nephew… help!?

Question by Wing: I want to see my niece but not my nephew… help!?
I live to be an aunt. I have five nieces and nephews from two brothers, and love them all to death. Four of them are well behaved (all of one brother’s and one of the other’s) and are a joy to be around and spend time with. The fifth, a 4 yr old boy… well.. he’s a pain in the butt. There is no volume control on him, he disobeys as often as he breathes, and it’s a nightmare to have him around.

I feel so guilty for feeling like this; I don’t want any of them to ever get a slight hint of favoritism or negativity from me. However, I end up taking the “good set” of kids all the time and rarely take the set with the nephew. I miss my niece horribly, and want to spend time with her without my nephew blowing everything up.

I’d really appreciate any advice. I’m a trained child care provider, and I can’t handle this kid. I fear telling my brother I only want his daughter around until his son learns to behave. Mostly, I fear what could and will happen to my relationship with my nephew.

I understand he’s 4 and that 4 years olds are wild…. I’ve had about 100 4 yr olds in my care over the past 10 years. I’ve never seen this level of noise or disobedience from any of them. His mom just laughs and goes “that’s my son!”

Aww the kid is 4. He doesn’t know any better. Although his parents should be raising him to calm down a little. But it’s totally natural at those ages to be hyper like that. He’ll grow out of it.

I think my 11 year old niece has a crush on me! help!?

Question by special-k: I think my 11 year old niece has a crush on me! help!?
Im a 27 year old open butch lesbian surfer / boxer/ WFA running back and my wife’s sister’s daughter (my niece) seems to be a “lesbian in training” because she acts the same way my wife and I did at that age. anyway. she wants to hang out, throw the football, watch movies etc every day. she texts and calls me several times daily. when we ARE hanging out, she cuddles into me, rubs on me, tries to tickle me and even kisses and touches me inappropriately. she tries to dress like me and wants to become involved in the same sports as well. she even talks like me. Am I a role model to her? or am I a crush? and if I am a crush of her’s, how do I approach telling her not to do some of these things without hurting her feelings because I do love her and enjoy being with her.

This is very creepy, so just try and dissuade her. Tell her it isn’t appropriate.
