Dr. Will

The Boy Child took a psychology class last semester and we have all been on the receiving end of his knowledge.  He told his sister that evidence shows that if you live with your significant other prior to marriage you are more likely to divorce.

She might have told him to mind his own beeswax.  Or buttwax.

This did not deter Dr. Will in matters of his family's emotional health.

When he was taking me to pick up my car from the shop he said, "Big changes are coming for you and Dad, huh Mama?"   Yes, they are.

"How do you feel about that?"  I don't really know yet.

"Well, you should know that this is a period of upswing in your marriage."  Really?

"Yeah, you have the good times when you're first married, then the raising kids years that aren't so good for your marriage.  Now with an empty nest you will be going back to the good times."  The honeymoon years so to speak.

"Yep, that's it.  Good times.  You and Dad."  

Well, now...........that's a dog that just might hunt.
