Do you miss your kids when they are gone?

My children, ages 13 and 15, have been visiting with their grandparents for a week. They got to help with the garden and play with their younger cousins. They are coming home tonight. I'll be glad to see them. They will leave again for camp in two days. Do your kids go to camp or the grandparent's in the summer? Do you miss them?

I think most parents miss their kids when they are gone, sometimes the quiet can be deafening, lol. I have 4 children and they dont all go away at once, My kids have never really been gone for more than a day but my seven year old twins this year are going to camp for a week, that will be interesting for them and us.

My kids LOVE camp. Hope your twins enjoy it. Since I babysit at home I don't get the quiet during the day, just at night when its just my husband and myself.

My son have not been that gone for long but there are times that I leave him with his dad because I had to do some errands. Usually when I'm gone for only a few hours, I start to miss my son already. So, I'm not sure I can stand being away from him for a week.

My son is 2+ yr old but still I miss him when my husband takes him out for a short walk. I cannot even think of leaving him for few hours. Hope I can manage when he starts going to school.

Dont we all just wish for a few moments peace and when the kids are running thru the house tearing up jack, we wish for a few days to ourselvs with no kids and calgon can take us away? Than when the children are gone for a few hours , overnight or for a week or two we are lost and dont know what to do with ourselves.
