When my daughters were little, our home did not seem empty at all
I sat at the head of the table after I fixed dinner for all of us.
Being right handed the bebe' sat on my lap with my left arm around her
it was easy to feed her right off dad's plate. The second oldest sat on the first chair to my left.
Again, It was easy enough to reach her utensils and help place a bite of food on a spoon or fork.
The eldest sat to my right and was easy to watch and praise her for doing such a good job
eating like a big girl...no messies :0
My girls have been out of my life 10 years this Dec. 22. Time has not changed my love for my children.
I still have tons of little girl stuff packed away in the basement; thinking, believing, hoping one fine day...
When it comes to looking for a potential partner and they have 1,2,3,4 boys in their teens...might not be
a good fit.
I feel most any woman or even girl would find my home tasteful, charming and pleasing to the emotional
No sport equip. here. Boys (remember I used to be one) probably would not care for the chanteel (sp)atmosphere.
I dust mop most daily and shoes come off at the door.
If boys are anything like I used to be....I am "not" sure I am geared for that.
As Rachel mentioned the loneliest place is at the head of the table. I "can" relate
Kids need to at least fit in some ways to a current lifestyle. Having been raised in the
country myself; had my parents split and as a given and I was forced to live in town with a new
stepfather...not a good fit at all.
Everything must be considered
