      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

  1. With several holidays on the horizon - Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's - I'm wondering if any of your hobbies/interests/sports/passions lend themselves to any of these occasions? Perhaps you love to cook, and so preparing dishes for TG or Xmas is right up your alley. Or maybe crafting is your hobby, and you've made a cornucopia for your TG table or enjoy making your own decorations for Xmas or Hanukkah, etc. Or you're a shutterbug and the holidays give you plenty of opportunity to indulge your passion. Or?? Then again, perhaps you'd rather be out skiing (if it's possible) just when it's time to gather around the holiday dinner table. Or maybe you'd rather be taking in an opera. Or??
  2. What's your favorite spring sport, if any - soccer, tennis, lacrosse, baseball, softball, something else? Does your kid/GK/relative child play one or more of them?
  3. It's spring and, among other things, that means baseball season! Do you have a favorite team? Whether it's a professional one, your kids' college team or your local Little League, etc., please let us know below...
  4. How do you think this year's World Series is going? What team are you routing for, if any? And how do you predict it will end up?
  5. Well, it's baseball season again! Why do you think baseball is such a popular sport?    
  6. Whether it's a professional team, your alma mater's or the one at the local high school, what's your fave baseketball team? Or are you not into basketball?
  7. What are some of your favorite winter activities? Sledding? Skiing? Ice skating? Building a snowman (perhaps together w/ the kids in the family)?  And, if you will, do you get to share any of these w/ your LOs, teens, AC (adult children), GC (grandchildren) or any other relatives? Especially (but not only) during the holidays?
  8. Do you have a fave sport? Is it a team sport or a solo (for want of a better word) sport. such as fishing? Or ??   Also, if it's a team sport, do you love to play or are you more of a spectator? And, no matter what the sport, if you will, how did you get into it in the first place?   Please feel free to answer any or all of these questions below...
  9. Elsewhere in these forums, someone mentioned the onset of football season. But I know that for some people football season doesn't "begin" until after the World Series. How about you?
  10. Looks Like the Seahawks Won...

    ... are you psyched, disappointed, indifferent or just ready to move on to basketball season?
  11. Is basketball a big deal in your home/family? And do you have a favorite team?
  12. Did New Year's Day find you glued to the TV, watching the Rose Bowl? And/or will you be spending February 2 watching the Super Bowl? If so, do you tend to do so alone, while your spouse/SO/whoever goes off and does their own thing? With spouse/SO and, maybe some beer and chips, etc to munch on? With a bunch of buddies/sports-minded couples, standing up the whole time, like in the commercial? Or do you throw/go to a party for loads of friends and relatives, complete with a big spread of food and drink?   Or perhaps you're not into any of this, at all?   Please let us know below...
  13. It's football season! Got a favorite football team or 2? Even if it's "just" your local high school players, please let us know below. And feel free to sing their praises, if you like...
