In five years this is what things will look like in our family:
Ayden will be 12. Yikes! He will be a year away from being a teenager!
Matthew will be 11. Can you imagine Matthew with a deep voice? Omg, that is hilarious!
Riley will be 6 1/2. He'll be halfway through grade one! Ohhhhh, nooooooooo! So sad :((((
The cat will probably be dead.
The dog will be approaching senior citizenship.
I will be 37. ACK! I'll be OLD! (I'm joking. And poking fun of all of you who are 37 or older)
Brent will be 39. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Brent will have 7 years seniority and experience in his job. Jeepers, I wish I could share with you some of the stories that come out of his job, to augment my paramedic stories. Some are hilarious, some are sad, some are just plain frickin' weird! But I can't. You'll just have to ask me for some stories when you visit me in person! :)
Lotsa love. We have tons of that.
In five years this is what I hope for and would love to see:
Adyen, Matthew, and Riley involved in music (Matthew wants to learn to play guitar, and I'm going to start teaching Ayden violin as soon as we buy him a violin (we are in the research process now). I'd LOVE to be a musical family, singing lots and playing instruments and everyone making fun of me for having the worst voice in our family!
Me, graduating from midwifery school and setting up practice!
All of us moving to a smaller, slower paced community with no freeway and a less materialistic subculture, where we can have a small acreage with a vegetable garden and chickens and a compost, another dog, and a cat who can have a litter or two of kittens. We had kittens and puppies and colts/fillies so many times in my childhood, and I caught birth fever then, I think...
Wowsa. Them's some changes. The thought of Ayden as 12 is really freaking me out! Funny how you just don't actually put the future into a mental picture like that, eh? How old will YOUR kids be in five years? Yeah, how d'you like THEM apples?
