I have this 6 years old niece , a very beautiful niece to add up, who asked me yesterday a question that almost made me cry.Shes always with me most of the time specially when her parents are working so im more like a baby sitter lol . I make sure that everytime im taking care of her i always tell her how much i love her and care for her. Yesterday she asked me uncle how come you love me?it took me a while to answer and told her that because shes my first niece that im taking care of and that shes a good girl thats why.Then she told me maybe thats the reason why i love you so much too, because your my first uncle and i know you love me so much.After hearing that i always cried and hug her tight. Its really so good to hear a kid telling you how much them love us without teaching them at all. What bout you my friends? do you have a niece of nephew whose as lovely and adorable as my niece?

Hey Setsuna, Its nice to from a 6 year old niece of you saying all that. If I am the one hearing it from my first nephew I would also cry and hug him tight. Though I am not that close to my nephew since I am living in a different city and my family are from down south but I always do my best to be his best uncle ever. Everytime I go home, i make it to a point that I give him something like a gift specially if he did something good. Kids are like angels. They are pure in heart, so i think what your niece told you is genuine and pure. Continue to love her and be the best uncle to her. I miss my nephew while doing this message. Sigh!

Keep that up dude and im glad to have a friend like you in mylot too.Happy mylotting!

Im sorry bout the loss of your sibling my friend. Yes children can be really so special loving and caring too, i mean i can never get enough of her everytime she makes me feel so good and happy. There are times that she will even sing for me a song, a very special song that will make me feel so good , even if shes not a professional singer or what just listening to what she have for me takes aways my worries and stress. Cant wait to have kids of my own pretty soon too .

Yeah sometimes kids can really answer some difficult questions that we never expect they will be able to answer at all. like my niece sometimes asks me stuff that i just cant answer like she asked me once uncle how come im alive who made me? I just said because your mom and dad loves each other and your made out of that love.Then she will tell me how come? lol i just say God gave her as a gift out of the pure love that they have for each other hahaha. Thanks for participating and commenting my friend hope to see more of your comments sometime soon too .

I have a niece she is almost two she's frighten of me because i have a really big afro and it scares her. it makes me kind of sad until i realize that's she's just faking it and she just acts that way because she's a drama queen. So i chase her around the house and she starts to giggle and laugh.

Hahahah thats so cute too, i mean kids can be really so naughty too, like just pretending but in the end they really like the thought of their uncles playing with them and making them laugh like theres no tomorrow anymore. How i wish i have alot of cool and bright nieces and nephews just like what i have right now. They are gods blessing to us all the time.And i wish we will all be happy and satisfied with all the blessings that we have in life. Thank you for participating and sorry for the late reply my friend

that's sweet... :) i love hearing those words from my nephews. every morning before they go to school and every night before they go to bed, they will enter our house go to each room to kiss us good morning and good night and saying i love yous. we dont stay in one house but they live nearby so it's really touching that they do that regularly. i'm definitely going to miss this habit once they grow up. :)

Your right we will never get tired listening or hearing them say those magic words over and over again. How i wish we can all be told they love us every time so that we will be feeling good most of the time. I believe kids are really Gods blessing to us, makes us feel so good every now and then,sometimes they are not aware that all the things that they are doing to us makes us feel so loved and complete thats not most people are able to do but kids do it so naturally. Thanks for sharing your views and hope to see more of your comments pretty soon .

Wow, that is so touching. I have a niece that about to turn 3 and I love her a lot. Sometimes I wish she was my own. I work far from home but every weekends, or when I go home, I make sure to spend quality time with her. Last weekend was a treat for both of us since it was a non-working holiday las Monday. I bathe her everytime I'm around the house. She was hugging me the whole time I was shampooing and cleaning her up. I love the moment, I'm all wet and soapy but knowing that being close to me makes her feel safe and confortable. I guess she's too young to ask me questions like that, but I'm pretty sure I will be crying as much as you did if ever she would be asking me the same question.

Touching indeed whenever shes telling me that she loves me i just cant help it but to feel so good. I mean because i know kids are all honest and stuff so i know that what she feels is for real, and not like most adults kids do know how to make me feel so loved without even trying at all. Her smile or whenever she tries to sing me a song simply brighthens up my day.Its those simple things that matters the most at the end of the day.Hey thank you for participating and hope to hear more from you on my coming topics too my friend

That was so sweet. I think there is a time in their lives when kids are very expressive and they feel no shame in telling the people they love that they love them. Precious times. :)

Yeah shes really very sweet and very dear to me too. I mean not most kids nowadays act like her. I mean i also have lots of other niece and nephews but not all of them are as sweet and expressive as this one. Makes me smile every now and then and puts me in the mood when im down and lonely .Sometimes we adults always think bout lots of problems and stress around us and we tend to forget that simple things like these can make us feel good inside and out. All we need to do is reach out and make things happen for us. Have a great day and thanks for commenting

Oh.. that's so sweet! I guess children do make us smile and cry, their love melts us and makes us do anything for them. It was good to know you experienced something so wonderful. As far as I'm concerned, I do have a wonderful son, who is enormously adorable. Have a nice day!

Thanks for commenting my friend . I agree there are also sometime that kids do make us cry alot, like when they do those naughty stuff that will make us spank them or scold them. Whenever i need to scold my niece and i need to spank her to teach her a thing or two i feel bad too. Because i dont want her to cry or to be hurt but sometimes we need to do things to make them realize that what they are doing is bad and the only way to do this is to teach them some dicipline and make them see where is it that they went wrong.Thats the hard part of parenthood some parents dont know how to explain to their kids the reason why they need to be spanked or to be scolded in the end kids rebel against parents. Hope to see more of your comments pretty soon! happy mylotting!

No niece or nephew but my own daughter.Children can make out who really loves them and care for them by heart.I dont know may be its the feel or what.My daughter is quite close to her grandpa(my father).If he scolds her also the next very moment she wil go to him only.

Yeah kids always have this sweet touch that we just cant explain,whenever my niece is being scolded by my cousins her parents she always go to my place and then tell me uncle mama spanked me , then i try to tell her that its normal and that if she breaks a rule or something bad then her mama or dad needs to correct it.I always make sure that she understands why her mama or dad is spanking her so that she will grow up responsible and with good manners too. Nowadays theres not much kids who are being taught well thats why this is my chance to teach my niece some manners well until i dont have my own kid yet hehe .Thanks for commenting and have a great day

My nieces loves me too, because I spoil them . No actually I am a strict Auntie I don't want running kids, they can lean on me when they needed a tutor or money or gift.... Children, maybe because they are children they are just doing what the old people are doing. Like you said, you showed her how you love her that is why she showed you what she sees on you. I hope that niece of you will grow a discipline and honest daughter of her parents.

I used to hate it when kids are so noisy and roams around like theres a stampede of horses but now well its a totally different kind of story i mean me and my niece are so close that sometimes people think that shes my own. Hahaha but seriously kids can be really a good source of love and makes us feel so light and good all the time too. Maybe because kids are so honest and to the point that they will make us realize what are our mistakes even if they dont try at all. Their simple approach to alot of stuff makes us wonder and think most of the time too. No wonder i love my niece alot too. Thank you for the time commenting my friend

Anytime set! You know when the appreciation comes from a child or a younger ones I get really touched because children do not lie, if they are happy, they will show it. Sometimes a simple thank you is enough for me to love them. Much more if I hear I love you.

lol...when my daughter was two I was doing some cross stitch one day and she just climbed right up into my lap. I looked down at her and said, "What am I? Your personal Monkey bars?" She smiled sweetly up and me and just said, "You love me." Talk about ways to melt a mother's heart, eh?

Yeah, kids really do love doing lots of silly things that at first seems silly but if you looked at it closely you will notice that its just a manifestation of their true emotion and love for us all.I never thought i will be feeling this way bout kids.. im not used to handling kids before i always tell my mom its a waste of time to watch over them every now and then, but after taking care of this niece of mine i found out that its the other way around , that kids can be really so adorable that they will be able to melt your heart with their own litte ways. Thank you for sharing your experience and thanks for commenting as well

This is so sweet. I have a daughter. she can't speak much yet but I can feel the love she has for us merely by her actions. She kisses us when she wakes up and cling to us when we reach home from work. She's so attentive too when I read books to her. Kids are really amazing!

Wow your blessed as well to have a cute daughter. Even though i dont know you or i havent seen your baby im pretty sure shes as adorable and cute just like you too. Whenever i see my niece i just cant help it but to feel so good inside and out. Its as if just by hugging her tight and telling a story that i know takes my stress and worries away. Although sometimes i need to discipline her for her to learn some good manners too.Even though shes not my own its as if shes already a part of the family how i wish i will have my own pretty soon for me to have someone to hug and kiss every now and then. Children are indeed a blessing to us

Not only do I have a wonderful daughter and son of my own whom I love and cherish more than anyone else in this world. I also have two beautiful nieces that I care for during the day while their mother and father are at work. My nieces don't always express that they love me, but I can see it in so many different things. You can tell that they love me in that whenever they see me they will come running. In addition to that, they always share hugs and kisses with me. They are three years old and 21 months old.

Congrats Uncle, you have accomplished your status with this lovely little girl. That is one of the major problems in this country that too many people are forgetting the concept that love is the most important aspect in a child's developmental upbringing. You say she was not taught this, I beg to differ, on a good note. You have done a magnificent job emanating love, giving love and demonstrating love. Lessons are not such that we must be develop a step by step written guide. And you dear have developed a step by step life learning experiences. I am almost weepy of joy for you, keep up the wonderful job Uncle as this child will always come to you in her future. This by far is the best posted discussion I have read all morning.

Hi setsuna, i have one son, but before i used to take care of my sister's daughter since my sister is working. Now she is with her parents. This summer holidays she came to my house to stay. She is asking me that "do you have same love on me still, coz you have son know" what can i say for her words. That feeling i can't describe it.

What a lovely little story! Children can make your heart break with pride and love with the things that they say. You sound as if you are a really lovely uncle, your niece is a lucky little girl
