We don't have any children of our own yet but we always have a house full of kids! I run a small, full time, in-home daycare Mon-Fri. And our nieces and nephews all live very close by. So we are able to spend a lot of time with them. Last year I was able to coach my nephews soccer team and have been doing swim lessons with our niece for 2 years. Those have both been such a neat and rewarding experience for me. We feel that we have utilized the time we've spent waiting to have children of our own, by spending so much quality time with the other children in our lives and their parents. Which we have been able to learn so much from all of them and their differences. We don't know it all about parenting but we are excited to learn and grow.
