  • I'd say that we are. I'm not as frantic driving them places and keeping up with them. That extra time lets me focus more on him.

  • No... I am still vaguely aware of some short people running around the house... I can't even imagine what it will be like once they fly the coop. Very quiet I bet.

  • Yes. More so with me having triple negative breast cancer. How DH has to do everything and how he worries about me. We'll be married 30 years this Month on the 30th! Though DD & her 3 young ones were over today.. We are closer.

  • OH HECK YEAH. The last one moved away just over a month ago and he's been on me like white on rice! Almost EVERYDAY! It's been crazy. I'm not complaining though.

  • we're very close now and have been since we got together. i hope that rather than drift apart when the baby comes he just adds to feeling of loving happy family - i can't wait - it's gonna be so fun!

  • I can't say since we still have a DD here and she's only 2. I can imagine it would be much quieter and a lot less amusing around here when she does fly the coop. I think we will get closer though. It'll be nice to have that constant alone time again. :)
