Are you parents still alive? They could petition you and would be quicker than if a sibling did it. Probably waiting around 5 years.

Hi moms - Can anyone share what you do with 2 - 3 YO on weekends? We are usually catching up on house chores and I feel my kid runs aimlessly around the house most of the day. We try to take a hike, go for the library or playground but with pandemic we have limited to only these 2 activities. My kid is terrified of people, going out after being locked inside the house for more than a year. We took him to the beech, play area with kids and he kept yelling back home the entire time.
