Being maasi is the coolest and most rewarding job globally, which is why it’s written like this:
1. You Have a perfect reason to act like a child
Watching cartoons, reading bedtime stories, playing all kinds of games without being judged is the best of all. You have to, you are a maasi. You rediscover your inner kid and get to do all the things you used to do as a child, as well as find new ways to have fun.
2. Maasi is their close confidant
She is the one who gets to know all the mishaps her nephew and niece had in childhood and adolescence. You will hear all about their first crush or their problems in kindergarten or school. You enjoy responsibilities that are different than those of the kid’s parents. She can be more accommodating, flexible, and comfortable, therefore she has an easy and relaxed approach. That is why nieces and nephews feel free to trust her. Maasi is a keeper of secrets and always has the best advice because she has already been there.
3. You have a secret way to comfort them
Being Maasi, you will usually find yourself as a peace negotiator between children and their parents. And, while that sounds like an unfortunate position to be in, it isn’t. Having the kind of intimacy on both sides, you are in a better position to understand and do the much-needed bridging sometimes. You can give your niece/nephews an idea of their parents’ views and positions, and vice versa.
A Maasi can have magical powers like those of Nanny McPhee to make a bad thing go away in seconds and provide much-needed comfort and understanding to your niece/nephews.
4. You are a role model
Maasi is an amazing, entertaining, and loving person. She possesses that unique quality that makes the world a better place for her nieces and nephews. They aspire to be like you when they grow up. So, when asked about their career, what you do will be at the top of their list.
5. Maasi is for Pampering
The parents are in charge of the upbringing and maasis’ are for pampering. That’s why you constantly give them one extra chocolate, let them stay up a little later than their bedtime, offer them whatever they desire, and so on.
Maasi’s responsibilities are minimal. She can get away with things that their parents are unable to. That’s one of the reasons she’s her/his favorite babysitter and the one with whom she/he enjoys spending time.
6. You have the most beautiful photos of all
Whenever you both are together you end up clicking many pictures. However these moments are inextricably linked to your heart, and these are the ones that might result in the most stunning photographs on your phone or social media. When your nieces and nephews grow older, they will be able to witness all of those goofy, cute, touching experiences, when they were too little to remember.
7. You will receive the most affectionate hugs in lifetime.
