My kid had a cavity filled and came home with this sticker on his shirt. He wore it for several hours. I’m making note of it because someday he’ll be living on his own and I’ll need something to scroll back to and get maudlin about. All the studies show that empty nest syndrome is baloney, that parents are generally thrilled to have their lives back when their kids move out. I won’t be surprised if that’s true, but I know it’s more complicated than that. I’ll miss that kid who’s not embarrassed to wear a chipmunk sticker for hours.
