Under One Roof

My 21-year-old daughter came to visit us this past weekend and it was great to have all of my kiddos (biological) under one roof.

Leaving Grand Rapids gave my daughter the opportunity to leave the nest and I have been so proud to see her really become an adult  – she has a job, she pays rent, etc. I can tell you that having your adult child living at home can really affect the relationship so its great to see her and not have to be grumpy!!

My son got to spend good quality time with his big sister. She took him to the Museum of Science and Industry and they had a ball.

It is especially nice to see my adult daughter and my three-month old daughter bond and connect with each other. My baby girl is smiling all of the time now and while I’m use to seeing her break the latch while breastfeeding to smile at me – sending milk everywhere – it was VERY FUNNY to see my oldest daughter freak out at the flying streams of milk going everywhere!!

My daughters visit also enabled me and my husband to go out on a date for the first time since we’ve been married ! It was so nice to go out without kids!!!

I am so appreciative of times like this with family.

experiencing many transitions in life - new husband, new house, new city, new baby. it can be overwhelming. i'm taking time to go back to basics. trying to figure it out myself. practicing that new time religion - self realization - finding, protecting, loving, perfecting me.
