I find myself…withdrawing
I find myself…alone
Strange to realize that the more children that leave the nest, the more I am alone. I like being alone, don’t get me wrong. When my kids were younger I dreamed of being alone. Yet now that I’m here, I realize that I like it for a little while, but then I want them to come back. I want one of them to wake up from a nap and come and cuddle on my lap to have a book read to them. Nathan does still snuggle up to me, especially if he thinks I’ll scratch his back.
Thankfully, nieces and nephews are having babies to keep us occupied.
At the end of May, I’ll have one with the newest baby, Isabel.
So, thank you JB, April, Dave, and Sarah for keeping babies in our arms.
