so useful b/c it helped me to laugh at myself and put
the conflicts w/my son and his new family in perspective.
A wonderful gift for any new set of grandparents, even if
they don't live in the same house for three months!
Once all the children finally leave the home, many times parents redecorate, enjoy peaceful meals together at a time they choose, even use pretty flowered dishware. Mothers can finally organize like they weren’t able to do when the family was all living under one roof. I mean, I’d like to be able to do this someday.
Viorst explains, in this memoir, how her life changed for the better when the “Alexander Five” came to stay for three months while their home was being remodeled. Was it easy? Not exactly all of it. But Viorst grew to enjoy her time with her grandchildren. Yes, she needed to let go of some of her obsessive behaviors. I don’t know if I could. Viorst brings to the reader the differences in parenting styles, both her generation and the present day standards. She also shares experiences of other families who have welcomed their grown up children and their families back into the home. It’s a fun read. I finished it in a few days.
