What age will you be an empty nester? (thanks to Biz1985 for the idea)

My peer group is suffering hard right now with their kids just off to college. Especially the "helicopter" parents with only one child.

I will be 59 when my youngest is 18~Geez, that only leaves about 20 more years for me~I better start dating...geez~

  • I was at age 48....when my last child graduated from college. But my oldest returned for two years until she bought her own home. I kinda miss having kids at home. :-(

  • Well, lets do some witchy math.... My oldest son is 17 and my second son is 16, even if I gave them to 25 I would have hoped to have my life back by the time I was 52...which isn't ideal but hey, can't change that....

    Well maybe you can, as I am looking into the sparkly blue eyes of my youngest son....who started Kindergarten today.... math redo... I should hope to have my life back when I am... ding ding ding ...64... and there really won't be much left of it.....
