Hi,

I'm new to this page and would like to come through from time to time. I may have some advise for others and always looking for myself. Mother always use to say " your like a sponge" never get enough information. I thought my Partenting was done when the kids go off to college or out of the house. However I raise two of my grandchildren, so that is starting all over again. People say to my Husband and I what keeps you guys going !! well having 4 Girls is a start and 8 grandchilren, I would say .. lol Raising the boys are totally different than raising girls. My mom passed away in 2004 so I dont have that wisdom no more to seek her advise. Looking forward to meeting new people.

Thank you Ladies, yes before my Mom passed away she was always laughing at me. I am the youngest of 5 kids and the one with the most kids and grandkids.  Rose, after four years i am coming to the conclusion that the kids come back just as needy as they were high school days.. lol Thank you Mari, I do know that girls are Daddy's girls. However when it comes to "hey mom I need this and that" lol  but Boys. Oh my goodness, very needy and Elem days are a crack up. Kinder, thru 3rd grade, hugs and kisses. But don't dare any grade after that, it's like Nana (get back, save the hugs) lol but I'm getting use to that. They slowly look over their shoulder to see if there friends are away.  Michell , Thank you for your kind words. Yes we see this with others or hear about it and never thought we would be raising our grandkids. They are the world to us. I know one day maybe will be the time to return the boys. Wow then another chapter of our lives will began. But i know their is a reason for this and it's meant to be. So as you all see I put everybody in one reply. Do i just hit the reply to post for each separte person? Nice to chat with you ladies ;0)
