My dad tells my children that there isn't enough room for them to stay all night. There are only three of them,(ages 9,11 and 15). If there isn't enough room blows your mind, how about, " I have things to do"! TRUE STORY!

If you're reading this and you're a new grandparent or grandparent-to-be, why not check out New Grandparents in the Community section? Same if you're an experienced GP who wants to share the benefit of her experience with those who are new to the scenario.

If you're new to GP.com - or want to help welcome new members - I'd love to have you come and talk to us in Club Newcomer! For either of these forums and more, just go up to the very top of this page, click on Community and you'll see them all! :-)

I always include the receipt because I would rather they exchange it than not wear it, or I take them shopping myself and let them pick it out.

The above tidbits should be shared at least annually! My grandchild is yet to be born, but soon, and I know down the line I will need the above reminders! As long as I am able I will be a member of this website so don't forget to reprint for me and others! Thank you!
