5. Empty nest: oh, the dreaded day when the last of your kids actually leave home to face the world on their own. After 18 plus years and a house full of memories, it’s suddenly quiet and empty…and foreign. Again, it’s like the phrase of “What do I want to be when I grow up” but this time you can call it “What will I do when my kids are all grown up”. Think about that for a moment. Consider the adventure that you can embark upon, whether it’s on your own or with your significant other. There are many opportunities…and usually more money available to spend. Check the internet to see what’s available. There has been an explosion of travel, business, recreation, causes, and even communities developed for people who find themselves to be empty-nesters. And many of them are writing about it, whether it’s through a blog, a book, or even letters. You will find many examples and many stories of Baby Boomers writing about the things that you are now going to be able to do…so join them and write!
When it comes to using furniture in the room, stick to small-to-medium sized pieces. In place of using separate furniture pieces, look at using a combination basinette/bureau which will give the illusion of more space while still allowing for changing baby easily. But you dont have to stick to all small accessories and furniture in your nursery, selecting some larger accessories will add interest and appeal to the room, so whereas you might want to go for the small crib, include a large mobile, they will compliment each other and also add an interesting element to the room.
