So the kiddos went to their dads yesterday to visit and will not be home til tomorrow. They are snowed in and can not get out. I have been sitting here all day wishing I could hear them fighting, laughing, or asking for something to eat.

Do you ever wish you did not have to send them for visits??

I have called them twice already and will call again before bed time. Do you do the same??

 Yes, it is very typical.  Kids are so entwined in our lives and routines that we feel lost without them.  I hope you hang in there and they return to you soon.

I hate it when my kids are gone. I tend to get depressed. Don't know what I'll ever do when they move out!

 You're welcome!  Hopefully you can find something good to occupy your alone time.  I'm sure the kids will look forward to talking to you before bed.

My dd18 moved out back in Sept and it was not that bad, but the other two are so much more mommies kids than she was. So yea, it is going to be hard. DS10 says tho, that when I am old and gray I can move in with him and he will take care of me, lol! Love it, so sweet!!

I feel the same way when I have to send my daughter to her dads...but then I start thinking how nice it is to have some free time to myself and before I know it, my daughter is back home again :) hang in there, hugs!

My DD doesn't visit her father, but if she did I would feel a bit somber.  That she's spending time with father instead of all three of us spending time together like we did in the old days.  Time that was once there and is now forever gone. 

It's hard to adjust to a new life.  I hope you are able to soon.
