My name is MK. My dog's name is MaisieMae, but no form of MK that I normally use was available as a username.
I had no idea the Spark community was this diverse (and big!)! I'm glad to get to know a lot of you.

I'm here for the support.
It's much easier to be fit and healthy if I surround myself with other fit and healthy people.

I'm married and a mother of 3. Grunt is 15, Screech is 10 & Dozer is 8. We have a very loud family.
It seems as if the majority of parenting support is geared toward younger children. When mine were younger, I appreciated this. Now, it would be nice to find other mothers with children of similar ages without having to sift through information focused on troubled teens. Don't get me wrong, we have our teenage troubles, but they don't have to do with drugs or bad grades; it's more like sibling squabbling, chronic boredom, and the ubiquitous proclamation of, "That's Stupid."
Finding other involved mothers with ego-bashing offspring would make it easier to laugh about the children, yet still make the right decisions. For example, when a male teenager wants to spend the night at a girlfriend's house ("Why not? She's JUST a friend! That's Stupid.") or when wrist protection is deemed 'Stupid,' there's already been two broken arms related to snow sports, and he wants to leave NOW even though he can't find his wrist gear or helmet.
Hmmm.... For me to say, "That's stupid!" would be rather rude, don't you think?

    I can tell you the kids will get older and it will get easier but you have awhile to go.

    I have 3 German Shepherds. One 5 months, one 7 months and my old lady of almost 13. I also have 5 cats. My children are 19 (away at college - I really miss her) and 18 (home and driving me bonkers with his needs/wants).

    I hope spring comes soon too. Keep up the good work.

    Have you found that your kids being "stupid" (fighting etc) makes you eat more? For me it is a trigger.
