What do all you mom's with boys do when the boys are home less and less frequently, or are off to practise with their dad (who is the coach) so he is gone too? I gather that I need to figue out how to fill this "free time" but I don't have a clue what to do with myself? I need to join something, but I am just wondering how most of you moms are spending your free time when your role as a "mom" begins to change as the kids get older?

Dang! I'm not even close to that yet!! Wink We homeschool so I'm always around the boys or at least one boy or another. Very Happy I will keep my eye on the responses to this question.

Hello! First time reading and responding on this site. I am Mom of two boys ages 12, soon to be 13 and 14, soon to be 15 year olds. I am really in that transition of trying to learn how to "mother" boys of this age. I have felt like I'm waiting for them at home to I have something to do. It's getting better, though. I don't feel like I have to do housework all day long. This summer I will focus on completing pesky projects that I'll feel good about completing but I'll also play tennis, exercise and make plans to leave the house more. My boys are ready for this, need it, and actually like to be on their own! I'm now worrying more, though, about how I respond to my 14 year old new "teen attitude". He's the one that's very social and always has somewhere to be. I'm glad for all his friends/activities because this is healthy and it's what he needs to thrive. However, his time at home is becoming less pleasant. This morning he passed by me and said "move" instead of 'excuse me' or something gentler. This really bothered me. My natural reaction my not be the most effective, I realized, so this is why I started online searching for some reading to do on this topic. I look forward to reading any feedback. Thanks!

I can see my sons saying Move. Smile My oldest is now 10 and he is wanting to spend time away from the house more and more. I'm not ready for this to happen.

My 4 year old would be thrilled to spend her days playing barefoot in plum creek with a homemade bonnet swaying on it's strings down her back.

I just wonder do any of you think about grandchildren? I worry that when my sons have children I won't be as involved as the moms set of parents. I mean... daughters always turn to their mothers for advice on babies and stuff right? I feel like that an area that I will be missing out on!
