How many do you have? And do you get to see them often?
I have 3 nieces and a nephew that will arrive early February. We get to see my brothers girls often (once a week or once every 2 weeks) however my other niece (my BIL and SIL girl) we don't see often enough. We live in the same city but we never go over there to visit. I wish I could see her more but for various reasons I know that will not happen.

My sister has yet to find a boyfriend, let alone someone to marry, so there are no nieces or nephews on my side. DH has a niece (age 5) and a nephew (turning 4 this month), and that is probably as many as we will ever have on that side, as his sister is in the middle of a divorce right now and doesn't seem interested in a relationship later in life. Anyway... hopefully my sister will eventually find a guy and have some little ones as well! :-)
Right now we see our niece and nephew about once or twice a week, though sometimes more and sometimes less (we're often there after bedtime, or right at bedtime, so we don't see much of them though we are over regularly).
DH and I are only children.. (well... Actually I have 2 brothers from my dad but I only meet him once when I was 16 and my "brother" at the time was 2 so he shouldnt have kids now lol Ive actually been trying to find him but gave up its hard to try and find someone)
I have 1 nephew, he is almost 8 months old. They live 10 hours away from us, so we don't see him very often (plus, his mom is super b!a!). That is DH's bro's son. I have 5 sisters & 1 brother, but they are younger than me & all are single (esp my 14 year old bro & 7 month old sister!!).
However, DH"s cousins all have kids, & we're really close. So instead of explaining "2nd cousins" & whatnot, the kids are our neices & nephews, & we're all aunts & uncles to them. There are a lot of them! It's all one side of his family. The boys are (including my 2) 8, 5 (almost 6), 4 today, 3 (almost 4) & almost 8 months. The girls are 7, almost 5, 2, 1, & almost 1. Plus another baby is due in February. So that's 11 kids in 8 years. Those are the ones I consider my neices & nephews!!
My sister has 2 boys, Noah (3) and Gavin (1), DH's side has 6 nieces, Irene(25) Jacquiline(23) Jeanine(20) Heather(20) Chrissy(18) Bethany(16) and there is one great niece Rylee who is 6 months and one great nephew Lucas who is 16 months!
