- Wedding: December 2011
My nephew is turning 1 in two days. Unfortunately, he lives in Minneapolis with my sister (his mom) and his dad, and I live in northern California. I haven’t gotten to see him half as much as I would have liked in his first year of life. My nephew, aging parents, and my desire to be closer to my sisters has caused my FI to make serious plans for moving to the Midwest in the next 2-3 years (hopefully).
My attachment to my nephew took me by surprise, as did my desire to have kdis myself, something that kicked in shortly after my FI and I got engaged. I have never ever wanted to have kids, but now I want them, oh, yesterday. All I can say for myself and my change of heart is I’m really excited for everything my marriage is going to bring to my life, including a family with the only person I can imagine raising kids with. I can’t believe that in a year to two years that I might actually be pregnant and be on my way to building that family. I am so lucky.
