12th Day of Empty Nesting...Math

It's a curious thing about the Empty Nest.

One day your first kidlet leaves home, and your family starts to shrink.  It gradually gets smaller and smaller, and suddenly it's just you and the Man.  Just like you started out with.

That's the way it looks.  And that's the way it is.  In a way. You see, perspective is everything, and it all depends on how you do the math.

One by one, they leave your home.  You subtract.  They get married.  They add.  And pretty soon.... BABIES!  They multiply!

It's how we went from our original little two-person family to six.  Then down a few, and up a few, and ... Now we are 19!  Pretty good return on our little investment, wouldn't you say?
