It is often hard to find time to spend with your own children once they reach a certain age. Mine have reached that age. They are teenagers. Yikes! My son is 19 and a sophomore in college, and my daughter is 16 and a junior in high school.
It has gotten increasingly hard to find any time to spend with them and that they WANT to spend with me. They have jobs, friends, sports, etc. Mom is just not as cool as she used to be! Movies are great- got them introduced to Jurassic Park- and they love to let me pay for dinner, but here are a few of the other things we do that help keep us "bonded" together.
I know some of them are T.V. related, but a mom does what she needs to when trying to catch a minute (any minute) with her uber busy teens!
