Best: Marring my high school sweet heart
Getting married is kind of a blur, it was so long ago, lol. But there have been so many happy days since. I relish the everyday stuff -- not into big spectacles or occasions. Just us hanging out, or even when we're not hanging out, because we suit each other so well, even when it comes down to being independent. I can't imagine wanting to be married to anyone else.
The other huge highlights -- meeting my niece and nephews after they were born, and seeing them whenever I visit. They're still young enough that they run around like excited puppies when I turn up. I will miss that when they get older.
I especially remember one long time away, when I was out of the country for months. I wasn't sure my nephew would remember me, because he was about 2. But his parents and Skype must've done a good job, because I went into their house and he was waiting there for me and immediately smiled, called me and gave me a big hug. I wouldn't trade the memory for a million bucks.
I love the last paragraph. I took care of my nephew, 6mo to a year, when I went to US. Then I just have to go back home. Gave me the saddest cry wishing I would stay. Won't let me go as I had to pass immigration. I said I'll be back but took me more than 2 years to visit US again. his sister was born and that's the reason I went back to the US. Both called me NINONG which means Godfather in my country. Thankfully there was Skype. I would see them often online and sing them a lullaby at night so my sister would find it easy to put them to sleep no matter if I'm at work or with my friends.
Those little people really latch onto your heart, don't they?
Skype is great. I'm glad your niece and nephew get to see you that way. It's hard being so far away.
One recent great memory: I happened to be in town when my niece learned to walk. I remember how excited she was to be toddling along, holding onto my two fingers. She had the biggest smile on her face and would giggle from time to time.
Sigh. They grow up so fast.
they grow up way too fast, we have four kids,my "baby" is 10 and my oldest is 19. Jeez when did I get so old??
I hear kids are supposed to keep you young, though, lol.
Ya that's what they say but it's all lies!
Lol. I'm prepared to believe you. I love being an aunt, not a mom.
I still feel young.
