YES!!!! I have always stated that you are a parent from the second they take their first breath until you take your last; your kids, no matter how old, come first.Originally Posted by Poppy Fields;3957538;
My siblings & I never had that with our parents. While we knew we were loved & we were provided for we always knew we would never be our parents #1 priority. The 4 of us are now totally different from our parents. None of us can imagine a day without telling our children that we love them. We all have pets.
This past winter I had a mastectomy & BEGGED my Mom to come & stay with me & take care of me. She straight-out refused because church came first. Me, I would have slept on the floor next to my child.
I get the whole empty-nest thing wth Caroline but her nest isn't empty. Mine was but one of my baby birds flew home & will be here until he finds a job & gets his student loans paid off. She really needs to get a hobby.
