I miss those days.

But children must become teenagers.

Nasty, ignorant, disrespectful teenagers.

Otherwise, we'd never let them leave and become adults.

Fun to joke about but activities with my teens are still my highlights. They don’t have to be the stereotype.

The real problem is their increasing absences, their approaching independence. It’s really frustrating fostering their independence, pulling back from taking care of them, dreading their impending “graduation” into adulthood.

On the other hand at my performance review, my manager spent most of the time encouraging to get back into dating now that kids are gradually leaving, trying to give me tips and encouragement, so I got that going for me

You're right.

I've got a pretty wide spread on my kids (step & bio). One in college, 3 teens and a ten year old.

Every phase has its ups and downs. Some days I wish the teenagers wanted to involve us more, and other days I wish the ten year old would just give me some space! 😂
