TM #386 - Do you have children? If not, do you want them one day?

[Locked to those who know of his secret life.]

I don't have any children now. I do wonder what it would be like to have them someday though. But, the spy life...I've seen what's done to my family. Both my parents were part of it and both of them were not part of the lives for my sister and I for several years.

Because of the spy life, I honestly thought they abandoned us only to find out, that wasn't quite true. Especially my mom. My mom even had to lie to me to keep her cover in tact when we found her.

So what happens if Sarah and I have kids? Would we be able to be with them? Would missions call us away for months or years on end? I don't know. Plus, there's always the risk that they would be in danger. What would we have to pretend to keep covers and keep them safe?

I guess the short answer is 'I don't know.' It's a decision with a lot to think about, that's for sure.

From the few times I talked to you, I think you'd make a great dad. Though I'm sure that's not the big concern.

Thanks. I'd like to think I would be, at least when I'm around.

If you do have kids, and you're ever in New York, I'll babysit.

Thanks Gwen. I appreciate it!

[identity profile] 2011-05-14 03:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Any time.

[identity profile] 2011-05-13 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
You know you would be a very good father.

[identity profile] 2011-05-13 04:31 pm (UTC)(link)
But what if I wasn't around enough? I wouldn't be thought of as a good father then...

[identity profile] 2011-05-14 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
I trust that you will know when you will be around more and not have a child until then. While you are more involved with your work, I think you and Sarah will not have children. You are both wise in that way, especially since both of you had parents who were not there for you.

[identity profile] 2011-05-14 03:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I dunno if we can ever quite plan for that. Unless...we don't have children until we leave the CIA.

[identity profile] 2011-05-15 03:50 am (UTC)(link)
Or, perhaps, get a desk job. You or Sarah could leave active duty for some reason. That would be a good time.

[identity profile] 2011-05-15 02:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, if the CIA approves that transfer, that may work.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
I cannot wait to see that day. I think the two of you will be even happier than you are now.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
I think so too. Then we'll have time to ourselves and not have to worry about...well, having to drop everything to go halfway around the world.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
Exactly. Children will be more exciting.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. Tiring at times, but exciting.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Oh yes. At least you are getting some practice with your niece. Believe me, it is invaluable. I learned a great deal from my cousins in that regard.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
This is true. Did I tell you what helped get Clara to sleep?

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
Ellie bought a toy called a Sleep Sheep. It's a little plush sheep that plays soothing sounds and music.

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
Kawaii! That sounds adorable!

[identity profile] 2011-05-18 11:32 pm (UTC)(link)
It really is. I can see why Clara likes it.

[identity profile] 2011-05-19 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
I will see if I can find one of these. I can buy one for one of my cousins.
