Because together we have six awesome kids: four teens and two tweens. Soon, our homes will be outnumbered by the Teenage Force.
Because we’re writers and can’t stop ourselves from writing about what life is like as midlife moms. We’re not afraid to tell it like it is.
Because we often felt misunderstood growing up and we remember being damn sure we Knew It All. Eventually, it hit us that no one knows it all. Not even parents.
Because the nursing debate, fancy strollers and co-sleeping are relics from our past. Now we’re stalking our kids’ Facebook, sharing their clothes, teaching them to stay safe, and walking the tightrope between Mom and Friend.
Because we get that drugs, alcohol and sex are part of teen life. But when it comes to the power of the Internet, we’re still learning.
Because no matter how cool we think we are, there’s always a Generation Gap.
Because we don’t just love our kids. We really like each one of them. A lot.
Because sometimes we feel fazed and need a place to rant, share, laugh and learn with parents at our stage of life.
