By shrinking in stature beside my children, my ability to strike them dumb with disbelief has inflated exponentially!
Bit of a win win situation!
Till they plonk me in a home of course.

Yes, welcome to another plain of existence anniet.

As for kids, mine have finally flown the nest so it's time to just take it easy.

Cheers.

Cheers.

I'm sure they miss you too Mike.

Only one of mine has left home. She wasn't noisy but house seems much quieter. Still have her bedroom ready for her, even though she's not far away.

Now that reminds me, tomorrow I better make their old beds after cleaning all the junk out of their rooms and washing all that bedding last week.

Yes! Isn't it lovely! And then you can revisit those moments years ago when you wondered why children didn't come with a little "off" button :)

There is nearly always someone around here to chat with, but making sense of what they say is another matter.....
