As a new aunt, nothing makes me smile more than seeing photos of my precious nephew. Seriously, he’s literally the cutest, and it kills me that I live so far away from him.
So when I heard this story about an aunt suing her 12-year-old nephew, I was definitely left scratching my head. His offense? Apparently, he hugged her a little too hard when she showed up to his birthday party…four years ago. The kiddo, Sean, saw her and exclaimed, “Auntie Jen! I love you!” before launching into his affectionate hug. According to Jennifer Connell, the aunt in question, she has been leading a “very difficult” life due to the broken arm she suffered when the two took a tumble. Like, she can’t even hold an hors d’oeuvre plate!
That is all baffling, and the saddest part is that poor Sean is still mourning the recent loss of his mother while dealing with this mess.

Thankfully, the court saw through her heartless, money-hungry ways and denied her suit. We can only hope that she’s learned a valuable lesson about playing the victim when others are dealing with so much worse.
