I have an aunt. She has a daughter [my cousin]. And she has a daughter too [my niece].
When I was in Uzbekistan 4 years ago, my niece was so little that I used to play with her like I would play with a little baby [because she was an actual BABY].
Today somebody messaged me on instagram: “привет меня зовут Oминахон [Hi, my name is Ominahon].”
When I opened her profile, there was a photo of my pretty niece. I thought, my cousin is messing with me, putting her daughters photo on her instagram profile and stories.
“Hi, beautiful. How are you?” I replied, messing with her too.
“We used to go to your place with my brothers. Do you remember me?” she said.
“Of course, I remember.” I texted.
Soon I realized that it was actually MY LITTLE NIECE messaging me herself.
I was shocked for a moment. It took me a while to understand that my niece has become old enough to have her own instagram profile. She texts me without even making grammatical mistakes.
It is blowing my mind off when I think how fast she grew up. Unbelievable.
