A brother-sister relationship is like no other in the world. They fight, they make up, they care for each other just like a parent does, and are pillars of support in each other’s lives. And this relationship becomes even stronger when they are blessed with their nieces and nephews. Especially, when you become a bua, you feel like the baby is just yours to spoil and pamper. So, here are a couple of more things that happen when you become a bua and can relate to instantly.
Whether it is about deciding the child's name, deciding the details of his/her first party, a decision to do with his/her new school or anything else; you have to be in the panel of decision makers!
You don’t know what it is but every time the child needs to be pacified, you are the only person everyone looks for. Be it in the morning or 12 at night, you are the only one with the special powers.
A dance function or a skit in school, completing a project, or going shopping for a birthday dress or gift- yet again, bua dearest comes to the rescue!
Gone are the days when you thought that a 64 GB data phone would last you forever! Clearing your phone for shooting more videos and pictures of the little one is a bigger priority for you now.
You are reminded of how amazing your childhood was when you spend time with your little munchkin. You do things, play games and relive the moments that you used to as a child whenever you are around the little one.
All that you are to the child and all that you do makes you worthy of being bestowed with the above title!
Like how the child's eyes, nose or lips are just like yours, or how he/she sings or dances just like you, has eating habits like yours, etc. And you can’t stop bragging!
Because that’s what buas do! They not only spoil the child but also their names in the cutest possible ways! And no one dares keep a pet name without getting it approved from you, right?
It is a mixed feeling. You are happy no doubt, but the fear of the child drifting away from you physically haunts you!
Things may have been different in the past but now, ever since she gave you this precious little angel, you two are the best pals on the block. You have a common person to talk about all day, go shopping, and discuss recipes and what not!
Yes, we know that you decided not to go to the kids' section this time, but a certain magnetic force pulled you towards it and we completely understand it wasn’t your fault!
