well my oldest is only 3..so not really a problem for me...
But I was wondering...do you plan on letting your kids live with you after they are 18 / out of school ?
I think it is very odd that alot of moms say they they expect there kids to leave the nest after they are done with school.
I dont plan on doing that...I would let my kids live with me forever, if they wanted to.
Obviously I know the stories you hear about the 40 year old guy who lives with his mother...
And I do plan on helping my kids be successful...but I would never even think of having a time to where they would have to leave my house...

Well, I'm still deciding. I have 3 sons who are 25, 22, and 14. Obviously, the 14 yo has at least a couple of years. My 25 yo left home at 18 and joined the Coast Guard. My 22 yo left home at 20 to go and be his own man. Well, they are all back. The Coastie did his 4 years, got a divorce, and moved back to "start over". The 22 yo got caught in the economy down-sizing and lost his job. He moved home to "start over". The 14 yo is a freshman who is starting high school. We will the older guys regroup, dust them off, prop them up and send them out again. I don't want them living here when there is such a big world to go see and explore. Go, have a life. Call me often. I take a lot of joy knowing they are so confident that they aren't afraid to go out there and just try things.

So far, Kitten moved out when she got married at 18 and Pumpkin moved when she got married at 20. Kitten moved back in for three months with Snoots when she was 21 and got wise to his lies. When Pumpkin was going to college ( in town) my hubby decided it would be a good experience for her to live on campus because he missed out on so much when he lived at home.
Pumpkins, then BF since the beginning of her Sr. year, and now DH, lost his apartment so for the last half of her first year we had a male child living with us. it was funny cuz unlike girls, guys do NOT talk all the time and there is never that time of the month (until age 55 for men). We never heard from him and every once in a while he would emerge to go to work or get some coffee. It was weird but kind of nice. BTW- next year is their 10th anniversary andw hen they visit he still hermits himself in the bedroom
