    How many mamas have them on this board !

    I have one...he will be 19 on Sunday.

    We always get a big kick of watching people try to figure out how him and I are related..especially when my younger children are with me !!
    (We have been mistaken for a couple many times !!)

    I think when your child hits the teens years,..Moms should have another "shower", where experienced parents get together and give you books, advice, survival packages and support group info, like they would for a baby !!! Yes, thats what I decided !

    As of tomorrow I will have 2 in the 18+ category. The oldest has already moved out on her own, the next is hot on her heels. Luckily I still have one little at home for a few more years.

    I have a 21 year old, so a few years past teens.
    He often gets mistaken for my younger kids dad and my SO. :p

    A few months ago we were at a Corner Bakery ordering lunch and when it was time to pay, he said, "Oh, you've got this, don't you?" and the cashier chewed him out for not paying for his date. :lol:
    She was a little embarrassed to find out that I am his mom.

    I have two teens (17 and 19, about to turn 20)
    and

    a nine year old.


    I have to say I have truly loved each and every year with each of them!

    I am pretty proud of the work I have put in as mom.

    My oldest is 14 1/2. I think you may be on to something with the shower for mothers of teens.

    Sixteen in a week or so, and thirteen. No one will ever mistake the boy for my date/SO, cause he is the spitting image of me. :p Same with dd and her dad. :lol:

    Someone this past sunday who has known ds since he was 2 and known me since then as well called me his sister lol.
    He kept staring at me and then said "Kelly?, oh wow I feel like a heel I saw you and thought you were michael's sister and then could remember him having a sister." I was laughing so hard and he was all red, before he left he told me to keep drinking what ever it was I was drinking lol.

    Well, Therese is 19 1/2, but she's out of the house already and on her own w/a little girl of her own now.

    Devan, however, is 12 1/2 and is definitely going thru the teen angst. In another 2 years Caelan will be 12 1/2 so then we'll have 2 and then in 5 yrs Todd will be 12 1/2 and we'll have 3. NOT looking forward to having 3 teen boys in the house at the same time. :lol:

    My oldest son is turning 14 in 2 months! He's acting like a teenager who's into grumpy mood and definitely not cooperating when told to turn off the computer when he's been playing games for hours!:( I'm dreading the summer holidays with 4 kids!:(

    We have three teenagers living at home. Ages 17, almost 16, and 15.

    Our oldest son still acts like a teen, but he is 20 now and just visits.

    Our "baby" is 11....so in couple of years, we'll have four teenagers...well, I guess we'll have only teenagers at home. lol

    I love the shower idea!!! I love the teen years. My favorite time of all so far in parenting. My 15 yr old daughter is gone for a month (w/out any kind of contact) with NOLS and it is one week into it and I miss her SO MUCH!

    Love teens....
