Hi all, new to this board.
Tue, 07-24-2012 - 7:52pm

My name is Wendy and I have been posting previously on the 10-14 year olds board, but now that DS is 15 and DD is 16, I figured it was time to move to this board.  I have been married to my DH for almost 21 years, we live in northern Minnesota near my DH's hometown, but have lived in Alabama, Ontario, Canada near Toronto, and in the Twin Cities area previously.  DS will be a Sophomore this year in school and DD will be a Junior.  I see a lot of familiar names on the board and hope to get to know all of you better!

Hi Wendy! Welcome to the board! I'm Pam in central IL. Married to dh for 29 years. Our boys are no longer teens - they are 22 and 25. I started lurking here when older ds was about 12 and was cl here for several years so this board is still near and dear to my heart. I've met lots of great gals (and the occasional guy) here and have even had the pleasure of meeting a couple of them IRL. Hope you stick around. The board is not as active as it used to be. Not sure if it's because more people are going to other social venues such as Facebook (I'm a huge FB addict) or whether people view Ivillage as more of a venue for 'younger moms' with younger kids. Either way I'm glad you found us!

I'm SAM in the Chicago 'burbs. I'll be 60 in a couple weeks, and dh is 58.5, and we've been married 35 years. Like Pam, my kids are grown --28 & 31-- but I started on IVillage when it began, and just can't shake the habit. My nest has "refilled" with my 6mo granddaughter, whom I watch every day.
