***Not a Grandparent?? No worries! Come join in the fun! Many of our members are not grandparents. Recipe swaps, fun and games, news items, quizzes... almost anything goes! Please join us!***

No matter if you're a "newbie" grandparent, have wonderful memories of a favorite grandparent or are an experienced "veteran" grandparent, this group is for you. After 30 years of being a "professional mom", I became a grandparent and realized that I suddenly had a whole new role to learn. Whether you are a long-distance grandparent, or a daily caregiver, everyone can use advice on handling situations unique to being a grandparent.

Whether you are looking for the perfect birthday gift for a 9 year old, have an awesome recipe idea for a finicky 2 year old or are dealing with navigating your way through a difficult family issue, I'm willing to bet that the wonderful men and women on JAP have a bit of wise, tried and true advice to guide you through successfully to the other side.

Let this be a safe-haven to discuss any issue relating to being a grandparent. Fun recipe ideas for children, age appropriate gift ideas, crafts, being the very best long-distance (...or short-distance!) grandparent you can be or talking your way through a difficult family situation, please feel safe and secure talking your way through to a happy ending with the wise and incredible advice of fellow JAP grandparents. Feel free to swap those ideas which were huge successes... and of course, those that were complete flops! =)

As always, please be kind, gentle, respectful and non-judgmental. Above all, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

A friend from high school sent this quiz about the 70's to me today. I graduated from high school in 1980, so this was my decade. I got all but one right. See how you do...

One Out Of Three Women...

One out of three women will suffer an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetime. Most often, the first sign of osteoporosis is a bone fracture. Our bones are living and ever-changing. Each day that you do not "feed" your bones the calcium and weight bearing exercise that they need, your bones will use its stored supply within leading to osteoporosis and osteopenia.

For women over 51, the recommended intake is 1200 mg. Are you getting enough calcium through your diet? Check out this chart to find out...
