When children come into the picture, it's nice to be near your loved ones so tots can bond with their relatives.

I moved back near home when I knew I was done with my wild ways and ready to settle down and start a family.

No, my parents moved closer to me. It's been a blessing.

i have to travel to see my family/in-laws...i never wanted to move "home" until i had kids, now it is much more appealing, although i don't really see it happening.

No, we have to travel to see them. Wish they were closer to babysit though.

No...... I've lived close to my family pretty much since I moved out years ago before I got married and had kids.
