I will, at the end of July, become an uncle for the first time, courtesy of my brother and his wife.

I have already pre-ordered the forthcoming 'Ryanair For Babies' book; after all, it's important to begin as you mean to continue.  Wink

I don't know how to feel, really. I hate children! They're noisy, irritating, restrictive, expensive...  Silly Thankfully it won't be mine.  Wink

James? Godparent? You've got to be kidding. Godparents are supposed to set an example, not to teach them what not to do.

I don't know. I only found out about it tonight (when it was announced to us all). I don't see what I could offer a kid at the moment, other than love - I'm too busy and won't be living near-by soon, etc.

It's a good start. After that, you might take youngster to A.net meeting, buys him few models of planes and FC membership here....

A piece of advise. Try to stay away and wait for your sister to ask for your help. Otherwise, pointing out to her what an **** her husband is, would only make you a bad one and it would ruin your relations with your sister. After all, who knows, he might be better than you thought. Just be patient.

Thanks, but I have my reasons for hating the guy.  Smile

I should mention that he has hit her on at least one occasion, something which I completely despise.

I can't stand a guy who gets a kick out of beating up a woman.


I told him if he ever hit her again, he would be dealt with.

I'm really sorry. Now I understand why you despise him. He deserves it.

Well, you are definitely very patient. If it was my sister (fortunately I'm a single child), I probably wouldn't think twice to give him a lesson or two and I guess you know what kind of lessons I have in mind wink 

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do. It is an ugly situation, but your sister must make some decisions by herself first, and then you can offer all the support to her. First of all, she should know how lucky she is for having a brother that cares for her. Believe me, many wouldn't care at all. Eventually, she will have to make some difficult choices, but in the meantime, let her do it by herself and let her know that she can count on you.

Also, it's not that bad to have four kids at the age of 21. It is hard, but, hey... in a few years time you will have no problems in finding company to go spotting. Just take all of them with you biggrin 

Anyway, I completely understand you. It must be very hard for you.

Hey Pe@rson,

Some things to look forward to as an 'Uncle'

1. Buying loud noisy toys (drum sets etc) for the kid to beat on.
2. Feed him sugar about an hour before they are supposed to go to bed.
3. Spoiling them rotten at Christmas and on birthdays.
4. Handing it back to its mom when it starts to smell, with the quote 'Not my part ship' or 'I didn't sign up for that'.

Pearson,

am an uncle twice - my sister had twin boys who will be 5 this year. Yes I do spoil them rotten on xmas / birthdays & holiday gifts.

Am godparent to 1 of them (boy is he in trouble) but its better just being a fav uncle. Fortunately they live a short distance away and so I get to see them often. There is nothing quite like seeing the excitement on their faces when they see you.

Make the most of the time with them - the 5 years has gone by very quickly.

Congratulations then to your brother and his wife. As for you being an uncle - it has to be hard enough growing up in this world without THAT to contend with!! Big grin

He/she'll have a terrible time at school if anyone ever lets out you are related to him/her! Big grin

Ah well, I suppose I had better wish you all the best (grudgingly)  wink
