Bit of a background…for YEARS FI has been on the fence about kids. He has never been around them and has found them particularly annoying for no real reason.
Me on the other hand always grew up thinking I would have kids but after many discussions I decided I wanted him more then I wanted kids and but that idea on the backburner for us. We have been together almost 10 years and I knew this from the beginning so its not like he held out.
Well last night on NYE we went out to dinner and he told me he had something really big to tell me. Since he started his internship as a paramedic he has realized how short life is and when you die, that is it.
He tells me over the past 6 months he has been really thinking about things and decided that to not have children would be depriving himself of crucial life experience that he wants. He said he has officially changed his mind and wanted to be sure before he told me.
I am so freaking excited!

@missjewels: Woohoo! I was in the same boat as you, and my FI also came around recently All his friends are having babies now, and he’s realizing what a rewarding experience it which led him to catch the baby bug! He went from “I don’t think I want kids” to “lets talk about it in 5 years when we’ve had a chance to pay down the house some” to “I think we should start trying as soon as you finish your masters and lock down a job you can get maternity leave on.” Yay for us!

That’s awesome! 🙂 Amazing how our priorities/opinions can change!
When my hubby and I got married, he told everyone to not expect kids from us any time soon, and said it would be at least 5 years. Flash forward only one year later and he is asking me when I think we should start trying ;P we are expecting in June!
