so, lets see, my youngest has come back from Montana with his girlfriend, plus my son and his wife live with us, so we went like this
(4) Mom, Dad, Son oldest, Son youngest-
(3) Mom, Dad, Son youngest – oldest gave 30 day notice (so I could cope) and moved out with friends = 1/2 empty nest
(5) Mom, Dad, Son Oldest, Son’s Girlfriend, Son Youngest – had son and his girlfriend move back in , apartments he lived in, neighbor took machete to wife head, sorry Mama no can do with them living there, come on home!
(4) Mom, Dad, Son Oldest, Son’s Girlfriend – youngest son of to college in Montana, noooo, so far away for 2 years! 1/2 empty nest.
made a move to larger house just in time ……
(6) Mom, Dad, Son Oldest, Son’s Wife, Son Youngest, son’s girlfriend – oldest son married girlfriend, youngest graduated and came back home with girlfriend!
So now instead if an empty nest, we actually added to it!
We may get a year to on our own before my mom has to come live with us 😉
