#Reverb12 - One Wish

Imagine a scenario where you only had one year left to live. What is one thing that you really wish to do that you just haven't had the chance to accomplish yet?

I would like to add: what steps could you take (however small) to ensure that you accomplish this thing in 2013?

I'm a very realistic dreamer. I like setting goals and wishes that are achievable, even if not for many years. I have almost everything I could ever want. A good career/job, loving friends, a supportive family, and the most caring husband ever. We have a nice life, 2 lovely puppies, and simple things! The only thing we would like is a home with a yard for our pups to play. But if I had to pick one thing that I really wish, that I haven't accomplished yet, it would be to be a mother.

I want a family of my own. I want to pass down traditions, teach my young one the rights and wrongs of the world, watch them grow and learn, and one day be proud of the life I brought into the world. With Christmas coming up, I sorta get jealous when my friends start new traditions or share old traditions with their kids. I really want to be able to do that one day with my own kid. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE spoiling my Nieces and Nephews, but its not the same.

Caveman and I were going to wait a year or more before we tried for a wee one, but we've recently talked about just trying now. If we keep waiting until we are "ready" and "prepared" to have a child, we will NEVER have a child! We feel we can handle anything, and adding a bundle of fun to our life, as crazy as it may be, would be awesome and fulfill a part of our lives that only a wee one can! Plus, Caveman as a dad would just be amazing to see!

As for what steps I could take to ensure I accomplish this in 2013.... well, I'm sure you can figure that out for yourself! ;)

I know the scenario is "if you only had one year left to live" - but I still feel that even a few short months of being a mother would be the best experience in my life.


  1. Love it! so lovely! Yay for you and your Caveman!

    1. *fan girl moment* I've followed your blog for over a year and having you comment on my page is awesome!! Also, Thank you!! We aren't expecting anything to happen right away, but never to early to start! hehe!

  2. DO IT! Don't take your fertility for granted. You're 100% right - there's never going to be a good time or a right time. It took us 6 years to get the 5 month old that is currently sitting on my lap and it's the best thing that has ever happened to us. Ever! Hands down. Awesome. (Even when I can smell the number 2 that he's just done!) Enjoy the trying and enjoy every minute together as the two of you - even with a 6 year lag time it's still a massive shock to the system to no longer just be the two of you. Have fun, be kind to yourself and I hope and pray that 2013 gives you the start you're looking for!

    1. Thank you for the kind words! And congrats on your small bundle of joy! Even if it takes us 6 years like yourself to bring a life into this world, every moment will be worth it! We will be taking our time and hoping when its the right time, magic will happen!
