Best Uncle Ever

Posted: Monday, July 16, 2012 by Travis Cody in

So my niece has been saving for a new phone.  The one she has is a couple of years old.  She has wanted an iPhone, and she had saved about half of the money for it.

I bought it for her.

I totally rock the uncle gig.

Now, I wouldn't have done it if she didn't already have permission from my sister to get it.  My sis was going to wait until my niece's birthday in November.  If she hadn't saved all of the money, then they were going to make up the difference and get her the phone. 

So she gets to take the money she saved and do something else with it.

Yup, I rock.


  1. Yup, you do rock the uncle gig!

    I sent my old iPhone to my nephew a few months ago. His wife has had one for years, in fact she's the reason I originally had to have an iPhone! With a new baby, he realized his old phone just wouldn't do any more!

    I think I might rock the awesome auntie gig a little bit, too! :D

    That is pretty awesome. She must have been ecstatic!

  1. Can I get you to adopt me? I'm saving up for an IPad.

  1. It feels good to do something nice for someone! :)

    Trav: You totally rock the uncle gig, but alas, I am not telling GN your story. She would ask me for your address, send you an email and begin it by saying "Dear Uncle Trav . . ." ;-) What a nice thing you did!

    Unkie Trav and Aunt Pam ROCK. I know she appreciates it! Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  1. I like to hear these tidbits you throw out about yourself and your life. You're awesome!

  1. Linda says:

    Indeed you do!

    Is it okay if I start calling you Uncle Travis?!?

  1. Jeni says:

    Damn! Jamie stole my comment! I was going to ask too if you could adopt me but not necessarily for an IPad as we don't get enough service where I live to even make a decent regular cellphone a reasonable purchase. But I'm sure, given a little time, I could come up with some other giftie item you could get for me that would keep you on as the Rocking Uncle! yes, indeed!

    Uncle Travis please can I send you my Christmas list? ;)

    Joking apart, that was a really nice thing you did for your neice. x

    Can I be your niece? So sweet, uncle Trav! :)

  1. what a wonderful surprise for her to receive. i'm sure she was so excited. and yes, you are her favorite uncle now, :) so good to have you back from vacation. have a great day~

  1. I hope you got lots of hugs and high-fives for that, Uncle Travis!
    She's a lucky girl.
