The empty nest


The empty nest – the impending horror of parents of young children everywhere, you know it’s real and you know it's coming. And let me tell you it comes sooner than you might expect. We had a preview this weekend when I let Mollie drive the two hours to her brother’s to visit with him and his friends and see his play. So let me give you a brief overview of what it was like.


Peacefulness

Naptime

Talking with Nick uninterrupted

Dinner for two at restaurant of our choice

Soft music in the bedroom

Blind fold

Cuffs

Warming oils

Leather paddle

Flogger

Leather hand fly swatter

Belt

Plug

Hitachi magic wand

Mutual satisfaction

The empty nest, I think we’ll be able to handle it.

Sounds so rough....not sure I can handle it.

Try not to be too sad, I know how broken up you are to have an empty nest!

HUGS!

Paul,
I think you hit it right on the head.

Lynn,
I loved every stage of my kids growing up and I thought I would hate the idea of them leaving. I miss my son like crazy and I'll miss my daughter but as long as they keep in touch and visit often I think we're going to enjoy each other all alone for a while.

Grace,
You'll need support. When the time come I'll fly out to keep you company. I won't let you get lonely - I can even sleep with you and Bossman if you need me to. What are friends for??

I thought I'd have an empty nest by now but son decided cheaper to live at home and commute to work :(

Sounds like you wont be too bored when Mollie has flown the nest :)

Love,
Ronnie

We are approximately 5 months away from being empty nesters ourselves. We CANNOT wait! I think everything on your list is on our list, maybe a few variations here and there. As Flounder says in The Blues Brothers "Oh boy is this GREAT!"

Ronnie,
I'm sure its coming for you in time i hope he at least has a schedule so you can be pretty sure of when he's libel to be away.

Mr/Mrs,
I see you agree it's not as bad as we once might have feared. Mollie will be around for another year or so but she is gone a lot. I think it's just perfect for easing us into this! LOL!

PK: I hate to say I told you so because that sounds so know it all but I think I've mentioned to you in the past that you'll miss the nesters but you'll find that an empty nest has its own pleasures.

Good to see you got a sneak preview.
