There is no one who loves you more than your parents. Except maybe your aunt — and these aunt quotes will prove it.
The bond between a child and their aunt is extra special. An aunt has the wisdom of a parent but the heart of a friend.
Why are aunts so awesome?
Aunts lack the discipline that moms and dads have, so you aren’t afraid to tell them your deepest secrets, like how you accidentally broke your mom’s vase or how you think Grandpa Frank is kind of smelly. An aunt is your best friend, your cheerleader, and your confidante.
Check out these 30 aunt quotes that prove that your aunt is your biggest fan (and you’re hers too.)

Do these aunt quotes remind you of your aunt?
To be an aunt is a special calling. Aunts are role models, mentors, and friends all wrapped into one huggable package.
An aunt may offer a different view on life that differs from your parents. Their homes offer a safe place to listen to problems you may not feel comfortable disclosing to your mom or dad. They’re cuddly, love to spoil, and are always willing to babysit when the parents need a break.
No matter what you’re going through in life, it is nice to know that you will always have someone on your side.
