Did You Move Closer to Family Once You Had Kids?

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

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.
