"You Know You're an Empty Nester When..." is a delightful and amusing read for parents who are facing an empty nest in the not too distant future. It has its poignant moments too. It's also a humorous look back for those who are "experienced" empty nesters. I thoroughly enjoyed my journey down memory lane, often laughing out loud at both the sentiments expressed and the cartoons. I recommend this book to all parents who will someday be empty nesters as well as those who are already empty nesters.

I'm the daughter of empty nest parents, and I can tell you that the observations Dr. Sundby made about "empty nest time" are SO true! Did my mom call me a million times to "just check in" when I went away to college? You bet! And, yes, I did have to walk her through setting up her new DVD player--on the telephone.

My dad always seemed to have business trips in "my neighborhood"--not that I minded, even though they were often two states away. The cartoons are great! In my freshman year, I received a care package almost as big as the one illustrated in the book--Kept my dorm floor afloat for a long time.

Although I've been away from home for a few years, I recently purchased the book for my folks. They loved it! Think this is a great book for kids to get their empty nest parents--it may. make life easier, not only for the parents, but for the kids too!"

Very funny, very cute look at what happens when kids leave the nest. I loved the illustrations, very well done and the look and feel of the book overall was pleasant.

I purchased this for my mother and she loved it. I laughed out loud at many of the pages myself. Highly recommended for parents and children alike. I look foward to a second volume. Keep them coming!
