How is everyone doing on this fine (snowy) Monday?? I say this a lot, but it seems to snow on Monday at 8am, when I’m commuting to work. What’s up with that? Can’t it snow at 11am? Can we have scheduled snow storms?? LOL (I’m sure that would work, no one agrees about politics, I’m sure we’ll all be able to vote on the perfect day/time for snow! LOL
I thought today would be a different type of post, just my thoughts about being a mother to men/boys compared to girls/women. I have three boys and two girls… the order goes boy, girl, boy, girl, boy…interesting the way they came out 🙂
My oldest son will be 33 this year and my middle son just turned 28 (my youngest son was still born), oldest daughter will be 31 and youngest daughter turns 23 tomorrow. I have always enjoyed being a mother. This stage of my life, where my children are grown and on their own, seems to be the most difficult stage of motherhood (in my present experience, probably will change again I’m sure).
My daughters seem to be connected to me in a different way than my sons; I’m not sure it’s bad it’s just new for me. Who else notices change in your relationships with your grown children and what have you done to keep connecting in your relationship? I think this is a normal stage of life, I’m just trying to figure out how I fit in.
Here are pictures of me with my children:) Have a great Monday.
