  1. Maybe there's hope after all for me and my two boys! It's been quite a ride with my 13 year old and I hear it's just going to get worse. Your grown sons sound wonderful and I can only hope and pray that's how it will turn out for me. Happy Mother's Day, Laurie!

  2. It sounds like you and your husband have done a wonderful job raising boys to men. Now you get to reap the rewards of knowing them as grown men. Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day weekend! Best, Karen

  3. Thanks so much. I've heard many women say as sad as the empty nest years are, they're necessary, even liberating. We've earned our freedom and its onto the next phase of life.

  4. My boys are still teens yet, but I can see the light at the end of this tunnel. We like the same movies and (most of) the same jokes. They're a delight to talk with and actually sometimes want to hang out with me. I even got a mother's day card this year that my older son drew and wrote and did without anyone reminding him! It was wonderful.

  5. I know the feeling. My son is 30 and I was just reading another blog about raising a 5-year-old and I thought, “Thank God my son is 30 now, I don’t think I could deal with that anymore.” I like to cuddle little babies and tickle their cute little feet….and then I like to hand them back so I can go meet my son for dinner at a pub.

  6. Hi Laurie, I had my two daughters and then at 42 I had my son. He and I are absolutely joined at the hip–we both like to say. After all, raising him from six on was really like having an only child. He’s my backer. He believes in everything I do and I always get an A plus from him. The love is amazing. And I’m totally proud of the man he has become. I thank God every day for my children. Daughters are awesome and my son–cannot say enough.

      Beth, Sounds like you and your son have a wonderful relationship. Boys can be so special and wonderful to talk to. I also can’t say enough good things.

  7. My adult son–the younger of my two children–has stunned me with how, over the years, he’s become our go-to guy for sound advice–business, investments, big decisions. Where he used to rely on our advice, now we turn to him. great feeling. great advisor.

      I turn to both my sons for advice on relationships, politics, anything. Its a wonderful feeling to know you not only launched them, but they’re great people too.

  8. I love having adult daughters who have grown into wonderful women and become my friends and biggest champions! Also enjoy Happy Hour with them.

  9. Love this ❤ I love being with my adult kiddos, they are amazing, they make me feel like I did a good job 😊Every now and then though, I look at them and wonder where the time went, my boys are 27, 25, & 20 . . . the girl child is 24!
