Don't you think that it is great to have older children?
Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way since I was never much of a motherly mother. I did all the normal motherly stuff, play group, carpool, music lessons, little league, room mother, birthday parties, etc., but I never really enjoyed it all that much.
Now that my kids are grown, I enjoy their company more than ever. I'm very happy that both of my children live in Los Angeles and not plane flight away.

There are so many wonderful things about having older children that I never expected. Everyone talks about the little ones. But it's a whole new world when they become "regular" people. Hope you all had a wonderful time together!

Yes, we had a wonderful time, and while I loved having babies and little kids, having adult children has all kinds of new pieces to it that I didn't expect and I do enjoy.

The fingers-crossing is tough, though, isn't it! My oldest is away for a week right now with her husband and her little one, my gorgeous granddaughter. I'm happy they're relaxing in sunny southern warmth, but I'll be happier when they're back when I can more easily know they're safe . . . I don't suppose that ever goes away.

I believe you feel a bit sad and at the same time a bit relieved after your childrenĀ“s visit. I try to push the thought of my younger one moving from home. What to do then? I know that the time will come. It is only natural.

Okay, I have to admit. I am in limbo and can't wait until I have that adult OR child relationship with my two daughters (ages 17 and 20). The hardest part for me is negotiating this time. Why? Because one minute it's mommy, I need you and the next minute, it's get away from me. Arggggh! The good news is I'm learning to tap dance and improv!

metscan and Michelle, it's always been a push and pull, if we think about it, right? And red ticking, I am glad you found us too.
