My Eldest Returned Home

This weekend, my eldest son returned home. He’s been living with his father for just over two years.It will be interesting to see the change in family dynamics with the addition of a 16 year old just a month after the departure of my 14 year old. They are such different personalities. Like the proverbial night and day.

Suddenly I feel like we are playing musical houses with the boys. Like we “traded” — which is really weird. I miss Derrick terribly and wish he would return home as well.

I know having three again would complicate life, but I don’t care. It’s wonderful to have Nicholas back home, I only wish I hadn’t lost Derrick just prior.

So THESE are the trials that make you stronger, eh?
