Our kids (the big ones) are all independent now

Reaching that point in our lives where our children are fast becoming completely independent is a double edged sword. On one hand, the freedom that we both have now is liberating. We have a lot more time for us and the activities that we enjoy.


But on the other side of the coin, it can feel like that we’re no longer needed in the lives of our children.  And I think mothers probably feel this impact the most. 

Sunday - the latest addition to our family

Recently my youngest brother had his first child - Sunday (that’s his daughter’s name, not the day she was born). 


The reaction from all of the women in our family was instantaneous.  That desire to nurture, protect and care for the latest addition to our clan immediately jumped out of my mother, my sister, and of course Kerry. 


At family gatherings it’s funny to watch all the 

The Extended Family

the women in the family  being drawn to this new child by some mystical bond.  And God help anyone that gets in their way - I think my sister almost bowled me over trying to get to Sunday! (which was on a Sunday!) 


Sunday joining the family has highlighted to me that being a mother isn’t just a phase in your life.  It’s something that you are, someone that you will always be, no matter what happens in life.

And that is something special and worth celebrating.

You're correct, even while there are times where a mother might feel distanced, she isn't. I was going through the papersstock essay service review and their review helped me be enlightened on all that. And it was pretty relieving.
