My Little Family

"When are you going to start a family?"

Excuse me? Start a family? I have a family thankyouverymuch.

I've never understood how only by having a child do you "start your family." My family started, officially, on June 7, 2008 when I got married. It was established way before that when I knew that I was with the man I would marry.

We share a home. We combine our income to pay our bills. We have life insurance where we are the beneficiaries of each others policies. We adopted Kitty together.

My family is started. I have no idea what the future holds. Life is just moving along at a nice pace right now. Work is busy. Home life is busy. Vacations are being planned. The pages on the calendar seem to be flipped through so quickly. Things we want remain wanted. Inaction doesn't lead anywhere but being content today with my family makes me smile and think that all is right with the world.

My family. My love. My heart. My time. My everything. It all exists to me now.

It makes me so angry when people act like childless couples aren't a family. My sister, who has no interest in having children, told my dad she is planning to spend next Christmas at home with her husband and my father told her Christmas is for family. Her husband (and 8 billionty reptiles) are her family. It's just so rude!
