Happy #FailureFriday. We all know mom guilt is SO real… but I’m starting to think aunt guilt is almost worse. (Who is with me?) When you’re an aunt, you want to be ‘cool’, ya know? I want to take her to all the best dinners, make sure she is entertained, and I’m wearing the best outfits. My niece is staying with me for the summer and I look forward to having her here with me every year, but this week has been a crazy week for me… two redeyes, meeting after meeting, I’ve barely had time to welcome her to the city, and when I am with her, I’m exhausted from the day. But sometimes, life happens and you can’t be the cool aunt, the attentive mom, and proactive professional, and you know what, that’s okay. We’re human. So here’s to reminding yourself you’re still the cool aunt even when you feel like it’s more of a mess than a vacation.
