I am preparing for my acting/artist/costuming daughter to come home by preparing one of the spare rooms in advance, so it it not just a huge cluttered mess.
So, clearly, they are grown and they either are or are planning to live with us for a while.
Both are considering grad school, but the boy will surely do it online...I don't know about the girl.
And I want them here, I really do... I just don't want to cook for them, or clean for them. I don't.
Anyway, here's to hoping they aren't officially boomerang kids.
One in five people in their 20s and early 30s is currently living with his or her parents. And 60 percent of all young adults receive financial support from them. That’s a significant increase from a generation ago, when only one in 10 young adults moved back home and few received financial support. The common explanation for the shift is that people born in the late 1980s and early 1990s came of age amid several unfortunate and overlapping economic trends. Those who graduated college as the housing market and financial system were imploding faced the highest debt burden of any graduating class in history. Nearly 45 percent of 25-year-olds, for instance, have outstanding loans, with an average debt above $20,000. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/22/magazine/its-official-the-boomerang-kids-wont-leave.html
