    I know you're sad now, but you'd be surprised at how easy it is to get used to the kids not being around anymore. Easiest transition in the world if you remember that this is how it's 'supposed' to be....

    And he's growing up've done well!

    Empty Nest Syndrome - when my boy moved out a few years back, I felt so empty, my daughter had already left, being 5 years older than him.

    We had him back briefly at the beginning of this year and to tell the truth I was glad to see him go this time.......coming back home after being gone a few years never works....not that we didn't get along, I was just used to the peace and quiet.

    As long as your son keeps in touch, you'll be fine, you'll get used to it.

    i know how you feel. we have 3 children and lived in pa.,when we left our sons were old enough to stay there at their jobs. our daughter had to come since she was still in her teens. she moved out a couple of times and then moved back,finally 4 years ago she moved out on her own. i was lost the only good thing was i was working that helped me through it. she doesn't live far but with her work and going back to school we don't see her very often but talk to her everyday. i agree it does get easier and yes when they come back even for a visit sometimes it is nice when they leave. i will always love my daughter and sons but it is good to see them grow and find their own way in life,makes us feel like we did a good job. take care and hang in there. biddy
