14/52 Portraits – Parenthood

My husband has 3 sons and I have 2… but since they are all out of the house, my parenthood portrait includes our fur family instead!

This week is a great time to post about this as we just bought a new, king sized mattress… because… … hubby had no place to sleep on our queen sized bed! ;D


Here I am (on the queen) with Cooper the Cattledog at my back, Tuxedo Jack in the curve of my legs and Buffy the haiku writing kitty in the curve of my waist. Yes, that is me tucked under all those blankets… Photo credit goes to Tim my wonderful mate.

I love my human children and I am so happy I am an empty nester. Our fur family is plenty for us in our 640 square foot home. And although demanding in their own way, the complex nature of the human parent/child relationship is missing (phew).

What about you? Are you an empty nester? or still enjoying the challenge of relating to young people in your tribe?

I’m so glad you stopped by. Have a great day!
