      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

A New Trick For A (not so) Old Dog

Recently my 12 year old grandson has shown an interest in cooking. He has even begun suggesting recipes for us to try at mealtime. This poses a minor problem for me as I possess limited culinary ability. I still I want to encourage his new interest so I go along with almost anything he wants to try. I can't imagine where he comes up with his ideas...social media or some other popular internet sites no doubt. A month ago his first suggestion of Spicy Doritos Chicken was surprisingly good. The chicken tenders were dredged in flour then dipped in an egg wash and then finally rolled in crushed, spicy Doritos and baked. A few weeks later my grandson asked if we could put chocolate cake batter in the waffle maker..."hmmmmm, ok, let's give it a try ", I say. What harm could there be in that I wonder. As it turned out The chocolate waffles were very tasty (even better when ice cream and whipping cream were added. ) Today he wondered about a chocolate chip cookie with an Oreo cookie baked inside. Well, now he's talking my language! We shopped for the necessary ingredients and he made the best cookie I have ever tasted. As a result my grandson's interest in cooking has peaked my own curiosity for trying a new recipe myself. Now isn't that the darnedest thing; at my age learning something new from a child? Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks after all.

What a delightful post, Roxie! GS (grandson) sounds like an interesting kid!

 

Also, based on a couple of your blog entries, it seems to me that you and DH spend a lot of time with him. Does he live with you? Or perhaps enjoy frequent overnights/weekends with you?

 

Regardless, I think it's always cool when we GPs learn something from our GC!

No, he doesn't really live with us. They live close by. We have been his only other care givers though since he was born. Sundays in the fall are "football Sundays" around here so the kids and I try to find other things to do. Thanks
