What type of relationship do you envision having with them?
I have three married sons, and we exchange cards and when we are at funerals, weddings, baptisms...everything is absolutely wonderful, but we have no contact other than that.
My three sons are all at a distance and they reside near their wives' mothers: they did follow that old standard of moving where the girl's mom is...but that's fine...
I have 7 more kids at home...and the over 20's are now beginning to date steadily and one may be contmeplating engagement shortly...so here I go again...with a brood of ten...it's just a cycle...I just stand still and let it all circle around again!!!!
I NEVER anticipated any kind of close relationship, though...unless they had actually chosen local girls...but they did not...so everything's kosher!!!
