My kids are getting older now and my husband and I are about to enter a new stage of our lives, empty Nesters. Wow, what a scary thought! I have been a mom for over 22 years and to think they won't be living at my home full time is strange. So now we almost start over to focus on each other again, it's almost like we are dating. Dinner and a movie or an event that is not kid oriented. Different but nice. Will take some getting used to but I think I can adjust. It's hard to realize they aren't the little kids who need my constant attention. I guess it's time to focus on the "big kid".
