06122007.jpgCrowded Nest Awareness Day
Remember when the kids went away for college and then moved on with their lives, never to return again? Well not any more!

And with the economic realities of life these days, more and more of our big “little ones” are returning to the “empty nest.” And sometimes with a significant other and their own “little ones” too! Oy!

So today’s the day to bring awareness as well as to offer support for those suffering parents.
