My first venture into online sharing. Am 60 and mom of rambunctious and way too into risk taking 13 year old. We adopted late in life and sometimes feel out of step with others our age(my husband is 65. . .) Anyway, its nice to know there are other women 40-ish with teens. Life is more challenging since getting really sick with H1N1 in 2009. Have to cope with walker, oxygen and other things that are a pain in the neck and other regions! Looking forward to hearing from other moms and sharing the trials, tribulations and joys of parenthood, and the rest of life. Thanks for listening.
