    Ellen –
    Just clicked on your blog tonight and found this gem. Sometimes I feel like I missed so much – but then I think of all the special moments. How we thought Tim would never stop wanting to go to sleep in our bed – but then one day he didn’t. How we thought Jeremy would never get over being homesick at sleepovers and camp (oh my God how will he go to college?) and then one day he did. How we made mistakes, but got some things right. And you know what chapter I missed in all those parenting books? The joys of having young adult children. It’s still a 24/7 job – cause you just don’t know when the phone is going to ring – with “Mom – how soon can I talk to you and Dad together?” or “Mom, I didn’t get my research funding – but I made it the next level of the Udall fellowship.” or “I am having a concentration crisis and need to decide by the end of the week if I want to go to Spain this summer.” But as the last days and weeks with Tim unfold, I’m holding tight to our dinner together Sunday-Thursday nights and sometimes wishing we could have Tivo’d (sp?) the last 21 years so we would have something to do for the quiet evenings to come! :))) Hugs- Audrey
