“Parenting takes up a lot of emotional space … I put a lot of time and energy into parenting these girls but right now we are trying to make their lives normal — so that means weekends were a pain,” she shared.
“And they’re gone, thank God,” the Becoming author joked.
All that energy I can now place back on me and spending time figuring out my next chapter, how I want to spend the rest of my life,” including more time with her husband.
“We have more emotional time, emotional energy,” she said of her empty nest with our forever President.
“It’s just me and him and [the family dogs] Bo and Sunny and dinner. And they don’t talk, the dogs,” she laughed.
Now I can look at him and recognize my husband, he’s still the man I fell in love with.
