All I have are the great memories, phone calls when they think to call, and sporadic visits back home to be 'babied' once again.
I'm glad you've learned to enjoy the visible traces of your kids. Soon enough, they will be gone and your house will be empty of their lives.
Oh I know. My oldest is 17 and pregnant
Shes going to be moved out with her own baby in a yr
My youngest is 18 months old. I really do appreciate the littler ones more then I did the older ones now that I see how fast they grow. Its hard watching them grow up and wonder if you prepared them enough for the real world, and to realize they will make painful mistakes as my daughter has and is doing. I guess thats another fuck up in my pocket
