Nesting

Remember (those of you who are moms) when you were about to give birth and you went into a cleaning, organizing, chore-tackling frenzy? That same surge of energy hit me today and I've been on a mission to create the cleanest house in America. 

Why? 

Good question. Could it be the annoying green film of pollen covering every surface in my house (because I love open windows) that triggered my quest? Perhaps. But, I think the bigger reason is the pending arrival of Jack. Nesting…just like 19+ years ago when we were waiting for Jack's arrival, the same urge to clean came over me this morning.

And with good reason…Jack will be back next week. His first semester at USC went by so crazy fast. Seriously. Can't believe it's time to bring him home for the summer.

We're happy to report that all went well for Jack's transition into college. Yes, it was a huge change for him, and for us. We really didn't know what to expect, and we certainly jumped through hoops to make sure we had everything covered. Were there some surprises and bumps in the road? Of course. But that was one thing we did expect. We learned a lot and we met incredible people along the way who were a tremendous help to Jack. 

So, my maternal instincts are kicking in, big time. Time to make the house perfect for Jack's arrival, time to embrace anything but a relatively quiet household that we've gotten used to over the last several months. Time for Jack and Max to be reunited for more than a short visit (like we had in April - see photo of the boys together in LA). And time for me to be a full-time mom again. Funny how one child leaves the nest, then the other child suddenly seems all grown up and independent. Note to self: when you hear "Mom" or "Ma," respond. 

And I will, with a big smile on my face. Looking forward to a full house again. 

Wishing all moms a wonderful Mother's Day. 
xoxo

Oh my goodness, first off Happy Mother's Day to you and yes you are an inspiration to all of us who have been through our own bumps and frills, we still admire you and your whole family. Second, this picture of Max and Jack is incredible, they were truly cut from the same cloth! Such HANDSOME young men! Lastly, may each of the following semesters go smoothly for Jack, we pray his education and life experiences will lead him to great heights one day at a time. God Bless all of you now and forever.
