It is hard to believe, but my nephew will be 2 years old this November. Watching him grow has been tremendously fun. My favorite story, thus far, happened earlier in June.


I went to my sis/bro-in-law’s place to drop off something for my sister. I parked out front in the street and came in the side door by the driveway. As I opened the door, my nephew yelled, “Cort!” [He hasn't quite mastered "Uncle", it comes out ... "Unc ... Unc ... Unclcor"!]

I heard my sister say, “How’d you know that was Uncle Cort coming in the house?” A bit later, we found out. As we were talking in the front room, my nephew walked to the front window, pointed, and said, “Cahr…Cort cahr.” He was pointing at my Caprice Classic....

Later, right before I left, he started saying “Cap…Cap…Cap…Capri!”, trying to say Caprice for me.



Other "nephew corruption victories" I claim include getting him to say...

..."Dodge", which my sister drives (manual Dakota quad cab)

..."Arlo", which is what I called the Monte Carlo, soon after my parents bought their ("my") 1976 Monte Carlo when I was ~2 years old.


While he hasn't said "Monte", "Carlo" or "Monte Carlo" for me, Dad tells me that he has said "Monte" for him.... For now ... I'm settling for Caprice, since he hasn't seen my Monte Carlos yet...!

Sssooo...what melts everything away for you? Whenever I see my nephew (or drive any of my Monte Carlos or my Caprice Classic), all the troubles of the world just seem to disappear. Who or what does that for you?

your cousin having a baby doesnt make you an uncle. well, unless youre from kentucky. then your cousin having a baby could make you an uncle, brother, or even a daddy. Laughing Wink

If your (assuming first) cousin is having a baby, said baby is your second cousin.

"Aunt" & "Uncle" are very loosely used terms nowadays anyway. People who aren't even related get called "aunt or uncle so and so". My girlfriend's mom has a long time friend that my gf calls aunt. I call my mom's first cousin's aunt. Hell, they are more like aunts to me than my REAL aunts are.

Alright. Back on topic.

For me it's definitely taking a ride. Whether it's in one of my cars or on a motorcycle. I always seem to come back unwinded after hitting the backroads for a while. I love my kids more than anything, but even they get me stressed sometimes.

Of course there's always the other alternative if you're 21+. Drinking Party

I have been called worse things than "uncle". When I was younger and I needed to relax I just took a bike ride and that relaxed my nerves. JB

My cousin is the acception to that rule since we were raised under the same roof like brothers since I was three, his mom actually chose to get rid of him instead of her deadbeat boyfriend when he gave her that choice. Evil or Very Mad Ever since then he's been my older brother, and now he's the proud father of a new baby boy! So I'm going to call Caden my nephew because Colton (my cousin) is to me my big brother, even though he's 4'8" and I'm 6'2"! Laughing

LOL! Ironic that this came up in this thread ... my sister LOVES figuring out "family tree" issues like this....lol

One more quick story from me....

In mid-June, events dictated that my 1979 Caprice Classic and 1987 Monte Carlo LS/CL were at the house at the same time. The CC was parked along the street curb, and the MC was in the driveway. As my sister and nephew left, my nephew pointed to my CC and said, "Cahr....Cort cahr". My sister replied, "Yes." Then, she turned and pointed at the MC, "...and that is Uncle Cort's car, too!"

My nephew looked at the MC, tilted his head, looked at his Mom, then looked back at the MC, pointed at it and said, somewhat hesitantly, "Cahr....Cort cahr." Since then, he recognizes either the CC or the '87 MC as my car. Course ... just wait until he sees the rest of my Monte Carlos.........LOL!
