"Welcome to WiseWomenUnite.com -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

Oh, I remember those darling Steiff bears! My eldest had one in 1948! They were expensive. Well, that's a relative word when my first, custom built home cost $5,000.!  ;D ;D ;D
If you had kept it,it would have been a good investment.They are ever so collectable and fetch high prices.
Oh and if a bear does not look so good anymore they are known as "Well loved bears" so dont discard them. ;)

Yup, my parents were born in the 1800s...horse and buggy. And my dad lived to see a man walk the surface of the moon!My mom wore long dresses and bathing suits that came down to her knees. (With a skirt!)  My mom was a teacher and she was not allowed to teach after she married because it was "improper."

Been reading posts off and on today. I do love humor. I've used it since I was young as a way to cope. I am glad I found humor. This made me really laugh. I am picturing the same scenario only fast forward say 40-50 years....same picture in my mind but adding all the tattooed seniors!
