I'm 48 years old and had my children very young. My oldest is 25 and living in South Korea with his wife. My "baby" is 22 and living at home. I speak to my oldest son when possible but with the time difference (14 hours) and our work schedules, it is sooo hard to connect with him. My 22 year old works full time and goes to school twice a week. I rarely see him and when I do, he is a man of "few words" so we barely exchange two sentences. I work full-time and keep myself very busy as I do have interests other than my children, but .... I MISS WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG AND NEEDED ME!!! LOL Anyone else suffering from empty nest syndrome?
