per·suade.

to induce to believe by appealing to reason or understanding;
convince. 








These two kids have recently

Stolen my heart

And I can't handle it

Sometimes I want some of my own

Only sometimes though

Like after Gideon cuddles me

Or when Liam just...looks at me

Yeah

For those few minutes

Having kids doesn't seem too stressful

Or too painful

It just seems amazing

I need to focus on the diapers and the sleepless nights


And love my child-free life for a while longer

Because being an aunt is pretty sweet

And it is enough to hold me over for now
(my niece + nephews are incredible)

Being an aunt is seriously the best!

I love being an Aunt! It's awesome because you get to play with them & watch them grow up but you don't have to change their diapers & if they fuss you can just give them back. HAHA But I totally understand how you feel about wanting some of your own, sometimes ;)
