Confessions of a Sad Aunt

My brother and his family are moving to Florida.
And I've known this for months now.
But for some reason,I thought that not talking about it,
would make it all be a fake.
A really late April Fools joke.

But it's not.
And tonight we are saying goodbye to them.

I'm going to miss my girls.
I wont see Daniela walk for the first time,
or see Sofi go to school like a big girl.
I wont see the bun in the oven once it's born.

I'm trying really hard to be strong.
To not let it be a huge deal.
But I always pictured my boy
being bullied by daniela and taken care of by sofia.
I pictured them causing trouble together.
and all along.... I guess I pictured wrong.
