My Chicks are Back in the Nest

I love the fact that my girls are not afraid to try new things and they head out into this lovely world to experience all they can. But, I must admit as a Mom that I am very very happy when they return safely to their little house across town.

While my oldest was just home from happily tripping across Costa Rica, my youngest was attending a conference in Orlando. She is a scientist! And every year she attends the American Academy of Allergy and Asthma and Immunology Conference. Quad A-I to make it simpler. She happily admits she is a science "dork" and loved the time to rub elbows with other professionals in her field. But she also enjoyed the benefits of being in Florida. Sunshine, beaches and shopping! Oh, how it sounded so lovely. From Sea World to Cocoa Beach, I could just imagine the fun she was having. She got to see the Peabody Ducks, shop at her favorite stores and the shoes, oh the shoes! Visions of rhinestones and gems. E is the best dressed research specialist I have ever seen and she does the University of Montana proud. (visit her here to hear more of the story)

So I am a happy camper with my ladies home and we will celebrate and hear their stories at a dinner with the 4 of us this week. It will be fun to hear all about their adventures. Always, Kit

Lovely to read your news. I can just begin to imagine the feeling of my fledglings leaving the nest - I will be proud, but I will be really glad for the times they fly home too, I can tell!

I know what you mean Kit. Whenever something earth shaking happens I always have to touch base with my daughters, even though they all live somewhere else. It's kind of like gathering your chicks together and making sure everything is fine.

You have some adventurous and beautiful daughters as well as brainy. I know you're proud of them.

You have two wonderful young women for daughters, Kit. So glad your chicks are close by for the moment, it's always the best time when they are. Ann

I too know what you mean. I live about a 5 hour drive from where all my sons live. I truly believe my favorite times are when we are all together, for a day, an hour, a weekend, it doesn't matter. Sometimes I just sit back and watch them interact with each other and their families and I just smile. Adult children are the best!

Should be a really fun dinner, Kit, catching up and hearing all their stories!

You are clearly one proud Mama and you have every reason to be. I'm from Memphis where the original Peabody ducks call home and I just love them!
