Today's blog is sponsored by: My Mom and Dad!
My Mother is asking for help and my Dad has a wonderful bit of information to share.
Firstly, my mom's dilema.
My Mom has 7 children, 7 children-in-law, and 25(+) grandchildren.
This also means that she has 7 sets of people that she shares her 25 grandchildren with. Meaning, her children's in laws.
These are people that she sees regularly. They were there when her children got married. When her children have children, when those (grand)children are blessed, at birthday parties, holidays, baptisms, etc.
These are people who, though she doesn't see them or talk to them everyday she is invariably connected to, and through amazing blessings, even likes.
So she feels she should have a better name for them than "my children's in-laws" or "my grandchildren's other grandparents".
She is looking for suggestions for an appropriate term. And knowing how creative and helpful so many of my bloggies can be, suggested I ask all of you for ideas.
She has already dismissed: shirttail relatives, out-laws, kissing cousins and co-grandparents as options.
What do you think?
Next, my father, being the ultimate scouter, outdoorsman, do-it-yourselfer, MacGuyver wanna-be, and possibly one of the 3 Nephites, is always on the look out for new uses for old objects, as well as interesting uses for just about anything.
So when he found a website that will show you how to make a wreath out of barbie dolls, a tent out of recycled tent parts, a marshmellow gun, vortex cannons, a 900,000 volt Van de Graff Generator using cheap parts, or even just an upcycled glowing toilet plunger lamp, he couldn't wait to share.
The website is instructables.com.
Thanks for the help, and happy creating!
