The boys even got to feed Manta Ray's and Kiwi the Toucan 😊
Got to spend the day with family up at Seaquest. It was sooooo much fun!! Love all the interaction the boys were able to have with the wildlife 😊🐠🐡🐙🦎🐢
The packages have started arriving! Aunty has been busy this weekend trying to get the last few items on my Christmas shopping list ordered so I can sit back, relax and just be a spectator in the Black a Friday mayhem lol 😉🎁🎄
Still learning the ropes of being a PANK (professional aunt, no kids). It involves a @baby.bunting
VIP card. My brother-in-law thought this was a sock puppet so it looks like I have a partner in confusion. Anyway, meet Billie the Bear, the little dude’s first comforter #panklife
All Smiles Sunday! This pic is a few years old, and it's one of my absolute favorites! The smiles you see us wearing, we still get those anytime we get together. I love being this little guy's Aunty 💚
Happy 7th birthday to my OG nephew. You continue to be the sweetest and funniest little boy. And while you’re old enough to know how to wink and for your baby teeth to start falling out, you’re still up for a cuddle. You are a source of pure joy and we love you so so much. #mynephew #nephewbday #panklife
“Carolina you’re so strong!” I called out as she climbed up the slide backwards. “I’m strong like a WOMAN!!” she roared back. 💪🏽💪🏽Has feminism come this far or is she just surrounded by strong Satchi women?!! According to @unicef
gender socialization starts at birth, where defined societal gender beliefs influence behavior. Well, not on this playground!! 👊🏽😉 #fiercewomen #panklife #ctfall #feminism #playground #sheknowswassup
Some might think my "Aunty Days" are set aside so I can take care of my nibblings but honestly it goes both ways. I may be helping them with homework, snacks, or being there for whatever they might need, but they're doing the same for me as well.
Some days you just need a break from adulting. A break from all the anger, sadness, and craziness of the world we live in. You need an afternoon of singing Disney Karaoke, an afternoon where you watch Voltron save the day, a moment when someone asks you to read a story to them because they love the voices you make when you read. These are the moments I treasure! These moments and so many more like them are why I am so thankful I'm able to have my "Aunty Days" 💜

Evil Queen and Ursula from Descendants 2 as requested by our nieces—but looks like the adults had more fun!!! 🙋🏽♀️
PLAY is an essential part of healing and life. When we play, the brain creates permanent play pathways that light up immense parts of the brain which helps pain and stress to dissipate. Happy Halloween from the Bad Girls of Disney!!! 😈 #badbitches #evilqueen #ursula #descendants2 #healing #sistersquad #panklife #dothedamnthing

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite humans. You’re two years old today and while I may need to start a bail money savings account for you, I love the way that you are always yourself. Even if being yourself means screaming at the top of your lungs in public places. Love you Scooter Buskie. ❤️ #mynephew #terribletwos #nephewbday #panklife
It’s National Comic Book Day! AUNTIE UP! 🌺 What are your nieces’ and nephews’ favorite comic books to read?
Today’s theme- #treatyoself
- actually turned into a #treatyonephew
day, and that makes me happy. This amazing kid turned 9 today. Last football season, he wanted to start a fantasy team after helping me in another league’s draft. He has now become the expert in all things NFL, and I have really enjoyed bonding with him on sports. So I decided that his gift would be a #carolinapanthers
game. They may be nosebleed seats, but a little extra splurge is getting us a *little* closer and more central- because he deserves it and so do I. I won’t remember the extra few bucks come December, but will cherish the fun memories ahead. Happy Birthday, Cody 💓#selfcareseptember #nephewlove #auntie #PANKlife
