Do you love your nieces & nephews as if they were your "second children"?

DH & I don't have any niece's or nephews yet. :(

But what I notice at least among some of my close friends and other family members is that thei nieces and nephews have a very special place in their hearts. My DS is like a son to my baby brother, and likewise he is like a second father to DS.

And I know my MIL & FIL have a few little great-nieces and great-nephews between them and they love them as if they were their own grandchildren; they consider them to be like their "other grandchildren".

It's just something that I've been thinking a little bit about lately.

Just wondering your thoughts about it...

I want to love my neices and nephews like second children but they are so badly behaved and spoiled I have trouble liking them sometimes.

I have friends whose children I love like my own, though.

A couple of them, but Iam a twin to their mother. I love them like they can do know wrong. Of course I know they can.
