When the kids were younger, "Holiday Time" was one of the most adored times of the year. Now that one has moved out, and the other is quickly approaching adulthood, somehow the holiday excitement shared many years before...is dwindling. Is this part of the "empty nest syndrome"? I hope so because I want my holiday excitement back!!!
I am still on the stage when my children are small. I have two daughters, the elder is 11, the younger is almost 3. But I remember when I got married, that my parents were feeling in similar way, like you describe. They were happy when we visitted on Christmas, on Easter, especially when children were born. Perhaps now you're going to feel different joy, new experience with your grown kids. Don't lose hope, miss butterfly, you still can have happy holiday time.
Butterfly, I know how you feel. I felt the same way when my three daughters grew up and moved out of the house. BUT...I didn't have to wait long for the grandkids to start arriving! Now I have 8, and the holidays are a blast!!
Starting new traditions is something I look forward to Couturepopcafe....that advice does not sound simplistic at all. Thanks!
Habee! So there is light at the end of the tunnel? :-). I heard grandkids are SOOOO cool!! I can certainly understand how they made your holidays happy once again!! Thanks!!
