Moms with Teens Moms with Teens

Am I on borrowed time???

Recently, it has come to my attention that I will only be a Mom with teens for a few more months.   I am so sad!  Not only will my baby be 20 years old, but I will also lose my status as a Mom with Teens.   I will be a Has Been!

It is bad enough that my sons are both so called 'adults'.   Bully for them.   What about ME?  I am not ready for this. 

Will I still belong in this group or do I have to move on?

I wonder if my Dh would be up for foster parenting?   I could take in an exchange stuident.... except I have no room for anyone until my so called 'adults' move out.   Ugh.

I vist that group, too.    But my kids fit more with the teens, you know?    They are not out on their own, with careers and families....... they are here with us.    I haven't finished raising them, yet!

Lots have college kids there. I got one out living with her boyfriend and then one 19. It is an awesome group. Lots of general chat too.

Thanks.  I will visit it more often.   I just don't know the group as well.  I am so comfortable here...

Really though, I just don't want my guys to grow up, lol.

This group has evolved numerous times and not the same as a few years back. I like it but ever since mine were both over 18 it is just different.

That makes sense.    I've only been a member for a couple years and this is my main group, so I feel like I 'know' the other regulars.     I remember a member with the name FlyHippie?    I miss her posts.   I also miss Nate & Evan's Mom.

Who has better advice then moms who have been there, and survived?

I still have one that is 19, the others are adults and on their own. own. When the 19 year old turns twenty I'll have one from the younger set turning 13 six months later. I could be in this group for many, many more years lol

Glad to hear it.  I would miss you if you left.     How old is your youngest?

Seems like it's literally a blink of an eye right?

I have 5 yrs until my first is 18, so I just joined the teen parenting group, but I was literally taking them to playdates yesterday.
