The kids may grow up, but they still need us...we think.

Mid Century Modern Moms is a relatively new voice in the blogging world: the voice of the moms parenting teens and young adults. We are a group of moms of teens, many of us of 'advanced maternal age' who are dealing with drivers' licenses, negotiating through the maze of college applications, and sighing with loneliness once our kids have moved out. We're an under-represented group in the blogosphere, but not for long.

We're done with the diapers and breastfeeding vs. bottles, but we still deal with parent-teacher conferences, homework, laundry, and a lot of other parental dilemmas.
The Terrible Twos have been replaced by Teen Attitude.
Diaper rash is now acne.
The "kids" have moved from formula to Mountain Dew.
Child care budgets have been shifted to college tuition.
Forget Disney Princess costumes: we're dealing with the latest jeans, pierced ears and more, and haircolors not found in nature.

We're interested in learning which blogs you read that are authored by mothers who are in the throes of the teenage insanity, moms who are guiding young ones on the path to college, and other beyond-the-carseat topics.

Do you know of other bloggers addressing these issues? Please let us know by leaving a comment here or at Mid Century Modern Moms.
