Today I had the visit at lunch of my youngest granddaughter. My daughter came to see me for a while, but brought Sofia´s lunch so they could stay longer. She bebaved like a princess and ate all her food (not seated though). In a few minutes, my other daughter is coming for diner with my younger grandson. Do you have family reunions once in a while? Do your children live near you so they can visit? Share.

I have my two cute little cousins in my family. They are very close to me and their houses is very near to my house. There is only some distance between us and I mostly used to take both of them to my house to have a good time. I jut used to play a lot of simple funny games and find a good time.

I am not too fond of babies, but I love them when they turn to children with whom I can relate and play. Sofìa, not yet 2 years old, is starting to do some small mischiefs and I love that.

Unfortunately, I do not have the pleasure (or is it horror?) of having kids or grandkids. I don't even have nieces and nephews that live here any more since my brother took his family to Taiwan to visit with his wife's parents. My older niece was supposed to come and go to school here this fall, but that has changed so I am really on my own now. Oh well...I hope your visit went well...Have a great week!!!

I must confess, dear, that for me, relations with daughters and grandchidren have always been the kind of love-hate. I dare say that, but I guess there are lots of people who think like me but it´s not socially acceptable to say it. I love to see them. Then, after some time, I breathe again when they go. They also leave the house upside down, specially the youngest. But I´m happy to see them and quite depressed when they can´t visit for some time. So, maybe, after all, I love the brats.

Was that the nephew you lost last year? I know what you mean by missing even the worst traits of the people you love and will not see again. I suppose that is love: you don`t have to agree with everything they do, but you care for their wellbeing.

Yes, that's the one. I remember back in the summer 2008 when I got home from the hospital following surgery and a month of recovery that I got too whiny for him and he bonked me on the head. I told his dad and they both said I was exaggerating the incident until the surgeon looked at my head and showed my brother the bruise from where he hit me. Oh well...

Of course, I don't have children, but the roomie's great-nephew stayed with us last night so we had a gentleman visitor. We were a block from her folk's place and didn't go see them, she's kind of angry with her dad at the moment.

There are alway issues in families. I try to solve mine as my people try too. It´s a pity to be in bad terms with someone that should be with you.

I kind of see her point, and since its Sunday her idiot brother would be there, and that late libel to be drunk. I have issues with my brother, but I do try to not let it interfere with seeing him and holidays and the like.

Glad to hear that you had a wonderful family reunion! I bring my daughter to visit my parents regularly. They live near one of my aunt's and we visit them and my grandfather there too. Over there, my daughter loves playing with my cousins. My family is all that I have. They have given me lots of support during dark times and I treasure them with all my heart.

I`m glad that you have strong family ties. THey are very important at some trying times in life we all have. And the only way to create them is to spend times with each other. I had a lot to tidy up after Sofìa`s visit, but she`d adorable. And later, at night, we talked about school problems with Diego, another one of my grandsons.

It´s so wonderful when family ties are kept, alottodo! I was very happy yesterday to have my family here. And this morning I discovered that Diego had picked up the toys that Sofía had left on the floor. I had just placed them in a corner, waiting for more energy.

Hi Marg, indeed it is great to have a family reunions whenever everyone of us are free. At least, we have got the chance to meet every family members, especially the little ones. We have family reunion every special occasions, where my parents had got the chance to meet everyone of us. My parents are amazed at how the little ones are very fast at grabbing the modern technologies. My son loves to take photos using my old cellphone when he was only at the aged of nearly 3. Where else, my sister's daughter good at playing games on iPad although she is only 2.

WE have big family reunions only once every several years. It is too expensive to get together and not everyone lives in the same city. But my own small family (my 2 daughters and my grandchildren) I see more.

Almost all of my family lives with in 30-45 minutes of me. My husband, son and I try to go see our parents atleast once a week. We see my grandparents once every 2 weeks atleast and my husbands grandma lives with his parents so we see her when we visit them. As far as aunts, cousins etc. We sadly do not see them as often every one has such busy lives. We do make a point to see them every few months though. I think family is very important. It has always seemed odd to me when people go a year or more with out seeing their parents, grand parents etc..

I seems that these family ties are getting scarcer everyday. There are many families where each member has gone to live to another city and it is hard to gather them at special occations. At a normal Sunday they usually don´t see each other. I confess that I´d like to see my children a lot more. But they lead busy lives.

I don´t see my older grandchildren very much either. They are full of activities and they have little time for family gatherings, except when there´s a birthday or Christmas.

Our family is not close, about 3 hours away and very busy. On top of that we do not drive anymore than is necessary, just getting to old. But I am glad yours is close enough to visit, it's important.

That's wonderful, marguicha. I'm so happy that you're able to spend time like that with your children and grandchildren. My oldest son is about to become a daddy for the first time in just a few weeks. His partner is having a little girl, due on August 1st but she's already gone into false labor on June 28th so the baby might be a little early. I'm so looking forward to spending time with my new granddaughter! I've even bought supplies to keep here at my house for whenever they want me to babysit. I've really missed holding a baby in my arms. My youngest son lives with me so I spend time with him every day. With the economy the way it is, it's best that he's here for now because he simply could not afford to be on his own. My oldest son lucked into a really great job with great pay so he's doing very well. He lives just 12 miles away. I hope to be moving away from here as soon as possible (divorcing my husband) but do not want to move too far away. I love being near my sons as we've always been very close.

hi marguicha I am so glad your grand children live where they can come and spend time with you. We do not have any Clark reunions anymor. last time I went to one I was just out of college. my own family here is only my son, robbie who is 53 now. I am widowed now for many years. we had a little daughter Lisa rose but we lost her on Thanksgiving day many years back she was'only 8. had she lived now she would be 52.
