Practice Makes Perfect

I am SUPER excited. Why?

Husband and I get to take the nieces to Milburn Orchards tomorrow.

First of all, how cute are they? I mean, wouldn’t you just LOVE to spend a couple of hours with them? I know you would.

Second, I’m sure their parents will enjoy some time to do what they have to do without worrying about 2 toddlers every 5 seconds.

Third, family is really important to me. I want my kids (in the future, I don’t have any now!) to know who their aunts, uncles, and cousins are. The grandparent thing is sort of a bummer since the hubby’s parents are missionaries and can only spend a month or maybe two with the family each year.

All that to say that since we don’t have any kids right now, we have the luxury to pick up the nieces and do fun things with them. Of course we haven’t necessarily done this before, but come on people, we’ve only been married for a month, we needed some time to settle in!

Plus, this could potentially be some top-secret master plan of mine to get the husband used to having toddlers around, as God willing, it will be his fate in a couple of years. But, I would never be so conniving, would I?

    humm… i’m not sure that soending excessive time with my kids is a good way to convince your husband to have kids sooner. do you perhaps have any other nieces hidden away who are cute tiny babies who sleep 20 hours a day and never cry?

    just kidding. they are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited to go somewhere with you guys. SERIOUSLY. VERY excited. you’ll have so much fun and they’ll probably be perfect angels for you. and you will have two very grateful in-laws!!!
