Today Ben and I were calculating how old we would be when our oldest and youngest would graduate from high-school. I'll barely be 40 when Ophelia graduates, and I'll be in my mid forties when our fourth graduates. We are hoping to adopt, so odds are, all our kids, even adopted ones will be done with high school by the time I hit around 50.

Ben says the plan is to buy and RV, and hire a driver for it, so we can hang out, travel the US and drink martinis from noon until night...just the two of us! :)


Have you thought about what life will be like when all your kids are grown up?

 Yes and I was just starting to live it when I had a surprise pregnancy and am doing it all over except this time its only 1 child and so far I am not a single mother.  Life is what actually happens while your busy making plans!!

I'll be 39 when my oldest graduates and 43 when my second one does. We may have one more in a year or so, but as of right now I'll be 43 when my baby is done with school.

We haven't really talked about what we are going to do when the kids grow up. lol
