One Of These Years

I was roaming through my cousin's blog just now and reading some of her post as I hadn't been on her blog for awhile. She write about her life on her ranch, with her husband and children she has along with the simple daily life joys that take place. Lately I've been really thinking a lot about where Jonathan's and my life will be take us. What will all have happen at the end of this year? Next year? 5 years etc.
Going into a marriage (And still extremely new to everything) I really was not in any way ready to begin a family with children and looked forward to a couple of years just of Jonathan and me. And I still do as I know every moment is precious and time goes by so fast, no rush for kids. But reading people's blogs about their own lives and seeing how they slowly evolve and adapt to what life brings them really does get me excited about what lays ahead. I must admit I'm looking forward to having children but probably more than ever I realize how unprepared I am. So of course a couple years of waiting is a must. But even still I've been thinking a whole lot more about what type of parents Jonathan and I will be. There are things that we view differently regarding children and things we will participate in and so forth. Like for instant Santa Clause and Halloween will probably be an issue. As we have two very different point of views on them and I wonder how we'll compromise when the time comes.
Growing up I always figure when I got married it would be to a man who had the exact same ideas as me. But obviously that's nearly impossible for anyone to as we are all different and have different up bringings. So it's going to be interesting meshing what he believes and what I believe.
Anyways I'm just rambling now. I simply am looking forward to writing blog about my own life with children. (Keeping out all the bad stuff and only writing about a how wonderful and angelic they will be! Haha) And most to see where our lives take us in developing our own family.
But like I said, we're both willing and ready to wait...a while. :)

I liked this post teaka :) it is really exciting and nerve racking thinking of what lies ahead isn't it? it's so true what you said about parenting too. you'll just have to figure out happy mediums on some things i guess? i'm sure you be an awesome little mommy when the time comes :)

p.s. i don't know if we can ever really be ready for kids. even when most people think they are, they usually have a rude awakening when it actually happens haha.

You will love looking back on this post in a couple of years! I love that you read my blog....it is all sugar coated....only the good things of course! LOL! It really is great to have differing view points, Darren and I view a lot of things differently. In the end, it is those discussions and disagreements that bring us closer and our family stronger....just wait....you'll see! Enjoy your precious time with just you and Jonathan...and live in the NOW!!! But seriously, can't wait to see what your life brings and read your stories!
