TOTALLY, TOTALLY agree. Excellent.
Thanks so much 4wardthinker. I know that when I joke about it and take the seriousness out, she can handle that better. I like the complimenting first for her independence. Thanks for your encouragement.

I'm thinking I should do the greeting card thing. Getting something in the mail is so sweet. My daughter doesn't respond to ANYONE's emails at the moment. She's going through an existential crisis I think. When we're together we laugh and laugh!
Duffsmom, good idea. I did try that, but I can try that again. Her friend has been diagnosed with Huntington's disease and is in her 30s, so that is weighing heavy. I have to "buck up" and be supportive and find my own distractions so she has space.

Great! I don't have grandchildren, though. I know from my friends with grandchildren that that is really an entire family bonding experience. You're very blessed. LOVELY, adorable picture!
Very astute.The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.Make your home happy, fun, not serious, full of laughter. Keep writing hubs like ur "Tribute to My Wife" and your children will want to be there. Divorce did us in.
KatyWhoWaited. This has nothing to do with the question, but I have to ask. How did you come up with the tag "KatyWhoWaited?" I don't know why, but I love it!

This is a very touching story MJeannie and I think it's more common than we think. My daughter does the same thing when she's in a "bad place" - she withdraws and tries to sort it out. I think your right about the different developmental phases. :)
