      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

How do your kids/GC feel about your hobby?

11 posts in this topic

Do any of your kids (adult or not) or GC share your pet passion? Have any of them even shown an interest in it? Or do they tend to brush it off as "boring" or "silly?" Or... ??

I made flower arrangements, so many for each season I have run out of space. They don't really mention them.

I made all the GCH and my DD a quilt  out of Deanna's clothes, and they LOVED them. One GDD didn't get hers because my DD has cut ties with us, so now it's ours.

She's the one with Deanna as a middle name it's such a shame she didn't get hers. Especially with her always bragging about Deanna as her middle name.

Hold on to the quilt until she is grown.  You never know, she might get in touch then and love the quilt more for the absence.

I do wood carving (by Hand) and DH is a woodworker, we make alot of things for Christmas, especially ornaments... The kid likes the lathe, but find my stuff pretty borning as it is time and labor intensive and he has no patience... but right now is the time of year when the kid really appreciates it, see photo, this was last years creation... one of many :) ... We are no way as good as the people on TV- but we have a TON of fun with it!!!

I'd love to learn woodworking! Its on my bucket list. My dad was a talented woodworker as are several of my cousins...DS is a tool head with the love of wood, we'll see what happens when he actually has the time to get involved.

I'm minding 3 of the GK Thurs-Sun this week...we're going to paint pumpkins as one of our projects.

Your pumpkin looks totally awesome! Post this year's pix too please.

Except for cake decorating, I am not all that crafty.  Yoga is definitely my passion, and my kids probably get a little tired of me telling them to take a few deep breaths to calm their minds or suggesting they do some balancing poses to reset their brain during a study break, etc.  All 3 kids have done yoga with me, especially ODD as she likes it and does a bit of it in college.  My son even surprised me one time and agreed to do a yoga session in studio with me, which I loved.  I am passionate about what yoga can do for you mentally, spiritually and physically, and I want to at least introduce that to my kids.  My DH usually practices yoga with me once a week, which is good too.  I am sure it is a huge sacrifice for him to practice in studio with 25 other women...lol!

DH and I took a class from a local wood working store to get started, I think we carved a spoon :). It really is therapuetic. 

Thank you for the compliment, I was especially happy with that one! I will definitely have some photos this year and will post them :) that is if we do not get epic failures! (smashed in face) which happens alot!

For now I told my GS, my deceased daughters son, if/when we die he can do with it what he wants it's his.
