A new page

My brother and his fiancee have set a rough date for their wedding. They will be tying the knot in twelve months time. I'm excited by this, because they have been together forever (roughly eight years), it means to much to them, and because it means the prospect of more nieces/nephews in the very near future!

I love small children, but I also love giving them back at the end of the day. I'm looking forward to having kids myself, but am in no rush to do so. I like children when they get to the age at which you can reason with them, talk to them, and have more fun. Cooing over very little babies is lovely, but I find it much more rewarding to interact with them when they can communicate back.

Having the wedding in twelve months time also gives me a great motivator to get back into shape. I exercised every day for months prior to my wedding, ending up with really toned arms and good level of fitness. I want to use this to get the impetus to get back into really good shape and exercise very regularly.

I know that I have surgery rotation next, and it could be time-consuming, but I think that it is very important to make exercise a central part of my life, much like sleep and food, and I'm taking this opportunity to get back into shape.

The sad fact is that it is now nearly eight years since I got married, so it may take me a little more time, but that is okay - I'm in this for life. :)

I know what you mean about liking them when they're bigger.
