I have two boys, 18 and 10 years old. They both live out of state but I have my younger one for holidays, spring break, and summer. The older one comes and goes as he pleases and seems to enjoy his emancipation from childhood and encyclopedic knowledge and awareness of everything.
I enjoy spending time with my kids and family. It seems that a lot of woman my age are happy to have raised their kids and excited to start a new stage in their lives. I am happy to still have a little boy who keeps me young and abreast of what's cool to a kid his age. I don't mind waiting to begin that stage of life where I am an empty nester and missing the child rearing years.
