Am I an empty nester?

I was for a short time before I decided to be a mother again.

My oldest children are a 26-year old son and a 25-year old daughter.

I did not do too well on the empty nester thing after my last child left.

I found a big chunk of my life was missing.  I had no excited anticipated announcements, no teenage emergencies to handle, no single mom craziness, whatsoever.

I actually thrived in single mom craziness, it made me push myself further to become the person I am now.   I tried as best as I could to occupy my time but that wasn’t my life.

I made the decision to be a mother again and now have a rambunctious five-year old son.

Simply, watching him being fascinated with something new, makes me happy that I made the decision. People often ask me if my child was an accident.  He certainly wasn’t!  He was planned and I absolutely love the decision I made.

I am brought back to seeing how amazing the world looks like to young boy’s eyes.
