  • We talk on the phone 1-2 times a week usually.

    He's pretty much all the away across the country at school. And busy with college, and leading his own life right now. Which is good with me. That's what he's supposed to be doing. Living his life.. lol

  • I mean, I don't have an adult child but as an adult child that's how often my parents called me.

  • My oldest son is in Baltimore....I'm in Los Angeles, too far to visit often, but we talk once or twice a week on the phone, and text a little note daily.

  • my parents use to visit maybe every few months, but I use to stop over there like 3 x's a week when I wasn't living with them. lol. So there was little need for them to stop over to our place because I was always at theres, lol.

  • Funny that this is a ? my older son lives with my father and is always at my home. His reason is that he misses his mommy. what is going to happen when I move to open Harmony recycle Ranch will he be spending his hard earned money to come see me then. LOL he says yes he would because he love his mommy. funny how kids grow up to get away but can't stay away.

  • I talk to one of them daily, and see her a couple times a week, the other one is hard to reach, so I talk to her every couple of days and see her about once a week.
