Adult Children

My name is Lisa Cameron and I am a mom to two sons who are intelligent, compassionate people.  My husband, Jason and I have spent our entire lives loving and teaching them with great results.  As they are adults now it is hard sometimes knowing where to draw the line and minding our own business.  They are 25 and 27 now and still live with us.  They pay us rent every week to contribute to the household budget.  We love them so very much.  Justin is an artist and works at a tattoo artist and he is one of two portrait artists in the state of Massachusetts, and Steven is working on revolutionary technology building engines that are electro-magnetic and are built for our military.  Jason and I have been together for 29 years in August 2013.  We love each other so very much and plan on spending eternity with each other.   Both of the boys look just like their father which I think is great.

Welcome!  Your post was one of the first I read this morning and I have a smile on my face that your marriage and family have turned out so well. Thank you for posting about it. It shoulds as though you can be very proud of your sons. I also have two adult sons who are doing fine and a happy long term marriage.

Welcome to Moms with Adult Kids.  Congrats on your family's success!  It is so good to hear of marriages that weathered the storms.  Your sons sound like great kids!  I have 2 DD and a granddaughter.  Look forward to hearing more from you on CM!

Welcome to the group.  I, too, had to smile when I read your post as I have enjoyed a long and very happy marriage and have three adult children who like yours are doing well.  None of mine live at  home as all are married and have become the parents of my five gorgeous granddaughters.  I look forward to reading your posts and getting to know you.

Welcome to the group! I think it's harder to 'mind your own business' when they live with you. Our boys are 23 and 25 and the 23 year old lives with us. Since we see him every day it's easy to kind of revert back to viewing him as a kid, offering unsolicited advice, etc. I find it easier with the older ds that is away at medical school. DH and I will be married 30 years in May so I'm guessing he's a keeper!
