If there’s a ‘cool aunt’, there’s the ‘fun uncle’. We’ve all had one as a kid. He’s the one you and your dad would go fishing with on weekends. He’s the one who usually brings candy or chocolate bars whenever he visits (he’d secretly give them to you, too, because your parents think you eat too much sugar).
You also remember him as that guy who likes to drive fast cars and goes mountain climbing in Thailand. Yep, we all have that one fun uncle who has loads of stories and jokes to tell. He may be a lot older now, so the adventures have stopped. But he’s a good enough storyteller that you can almost feel yourself reliving his best moments in life as if they were your own.
Why Uncles Are Awesome
There’s something exciting whenever Uncle decides to visit. Because he’s younger than Grandpa, he can keep things fun and be goofy around kids. But as he’s older than your children’s cousins, he can be a good male role model, too. If Uncle loves sports, you can count on him to take your son to his first baseball game. If he’s outdoorsy, he’ll definitely teach your little girl a thing or two about canoeing.
Uncles can form strong paternal bonds with their nieces and nephews. In a way, he is like a second father – except more lenient and relaxed. His happy-go-lucky attitude comes in handy for when the kids need cheering up.
When it’s a rainy day and your children are sulking because you don’t want them to watch too much TV, just give Uncle a call and he’ll come up with something even more fun. And before you know it, there’s a fort in the living room and the kids are laughing again!
Things You Can Learn From Your Uncles
Uncles usually serve two main roles. He’s the bro to the busy dad, ready to have a beer with him any day, but also with a schedule open enough so the children can come fishing with him. But he’s also the role model, someone with the right skills and knowledge he can pass on to his nieces and nephews.
There’s just something about the way uncles seem unburdened by life (especially if they’re still bachelors). You can count on them to bring variety to the table with their unique hobbies and interests. The best part is that they’re always willing to share these amazing experiences with young ones.
There’s the uncle with a collection of small die cast cars and a passion for speed; the uncle with the long beard who likes hiking in the woods; the guy who travels a lot to take photos of birds; the uncle who’s a college football coach; and of course, the eccentric man who lives in the big house and owns horses.
As they grow older, their stories just get wilder. Maybe he’s no longer the ‘fun uncle’. But he’s still the best uncle you – and your kids – will ever have.
On that note, why not send him a wonderful card along with these charming, heartfelt greetings for his birthday?
