Message left on her cellphone at about 11:30 last Saturday morning for my firstborn, who is busy planning her wedding to her college sweetheart, whom she’s marrying in A’s backyard on the last Sunday in May:

“Hey there sweetheart, your father and I are in Crate and Barrel, looking at champagne flutes and discussing caterers...”


Message (not delivered, except in my head) for my younger daughter, upon learning, yesterday, of her separation and impending divorce:

“No! Absolutely not! BAD IDEA! Go to your room and think about this, and don’t come out until you’ve changed your attitude...”

*sigh* - if only it were that simple...

After a certain age, they don't much listen to Mom anymore.

That age would be...what? About eleven?

So sorry about the one, but happy for you on the other...!

Wow, I can't imagine ever having to tell my parents I was divorcing but then again, I can't comprehend ever getting divorced.

I hope she reconsiders. Very sad:(

Stay optimistic.
Both can be wonderful and expensive.
