Just when you thought they’d moved out for good…
Being a mommy is great. So is being a daddy. But do you know what’s even better?
Being an empty nester.
Oh, the joys of watching a fully raised child sprout wings and move away. Until the horrifying day…
That child comes back.
Goodbye tranquility. Goodbye cleanliness. Goodbye leftover meatloaf.
It’s a fact that 52% of millennials are living in their parents’ homes.
Get the H*** Out of My House is picture book for the parents who hoped, thought and prayed they’d be empty nesters. It’s a way to tell them they’re not alone in having those hopes dashed, thoughts dismissed and prayers unanswered.
If that’s you, don’t despair. Just read this book, and keep the faith.
And if you’re the millennial who’s moved back, buy them this book…then get the hell out of their house!
