And he’s off!

10 Feb

The biggest downside to living abroad and away from your family, for me, is missing my nephew’s milestones as well as the impending arrival of nephew number 2 in March! My first nephew, Lyall, will turn one next Sunday (February 19th) and it’s his first birthday party on the same day. Since I’ve been away, he’s said his first words AND he’s just started walking. It’s killing me to miss these major triumphs in his little life, but thankfully Skype and my sisters iPhone make sure I never miss a thing!


A few weeks ago I received an invite to his party , I’m not going to lie, it nearly set me off! But I was the proudest auntie showing it off to all the Korean teachers – one of them even asked if she could photocopy it – I think that’s because it’s unusual for kids to have birthday parties in Korea, and even more so to send out invitations.
