      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

Welcome, November Newcomers, 2016! And welcome back, Returnees! And Happy Veterans' Day and Thanksgiving in advance!

I'm RoseRed135, Lead Moderator of this forum. I've also been happily married for several years and hubby and I have 2 wonderful adult daughters, as well as 2 adorable (of course) grandchildren (not to mention a great son-in-law)! I'm the regular "granny nanny" to those GC for some part of several days a week, while their mom goes to work or school.

If you're new to this site or even just this Community, please tell us something about yourself, briefly below, when ready (just key in your comments in the Reply Box and hit Submit Reply). If you're a returnee, please feel free to introduce yourself, as well. And if you're an "old hand" here,,  :) you may wish to introduce yourself, too, help welcome new members and help direct them to other forums they may enjoy.

In fact, this group was created as a springboard to other groups. So please tell us something about your interests/concerns and we may be able to help you find the forum or forums that "fit," if you haven't already.  Also, please check out the following stickypost (thread pinned to the front of the forum):

 

 

 

But I know how bewildering it can be when you (general) are trying to familiarize yourself w/ a site/part of a site. So please see this sitckypost:

 

This ^^^ thread includes a guide to acronyms and other Internet terms for those of you who would like help deciphering the ones commonly used in this community.

Meanwhile, please note that every month, there is a Question of the Month pinned to the front of this forum. Hopefully, the answers to these will help us to get to know each other better.  Please feel free to reply to these whenever you're ready (those that are more than 3 months old are locked, however ).

Whatever you do, delighted to have you here! Enjoy! :):db::give_rose:

 

ETA: If your actual email addy or full name is in your username, we recommend that you change it for greater privacy. To see how to do so, just click on this thread in the MIL Anonymous forum:
