The Empty Nest

CBS Soaps In Depth - - Days of our Lives -

With son Larry newly mar­ried and daugh­ter Emily fol­low­ing suit this month, Melissa Reeves (Jen­nifer) and her hus­band, Scott Reeves (ex-ryan, THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS), have been con­sid­er­ing their fu­ture. “Scott and I would laugh,” she ad­mits. “We were like, ‘What are we go­ing to talk about when the kids are gone?’” But now that they’ve waded into this new phase, there’s been a change of heart. “We’ve ac­tu­ally ad­justed re­ally well,” she shares. “We can do what­ever we want with­out think­ing, ‘Oh wait, are the kids go­ing to be home?’ It’s sort of like this re­vival in our life in our 50s.” How­ever, as both Larry and Emily have moved less than an hour from their folks’ Ten­nessee farm, they do still drop in. “I cook for them, and we play bingo and sit in the Jacuzzi,” their mom con­fides. “And they bring their laun­dry… When you don’t have kids at home, you don’t mind.”

“At first, we were like, ‘Oh gosh, this is go­ing to be so weird,’” Reeves says of their new life.
