Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue May 22, 2012, 09:13 PM

I'm greatauntoftriplets.

I found DU via the Top 10 Conservative Idiots shortly after DU went live, but didn't join until the following October. I'd never belonged to a discussion board and was a bit leery of the whole idea.

I really am the great aunt of triplets -- they are now 11 1/2, big and smart. To think they were only babies when I joined DU blows my mind.

I am also the aunt of almost 16-month-old twin girls, a 4-year-old boy and step-great-aunt to two boys (aged 15 and 13) and an 11-year-old girl.

Needless to say, our family gatherings are large and raucous. And fun.

2. Hey there

I'm betting after some of the family gatherings you need a nice nap or glass of vino.

6. Actually, the adults have wine during family gatherings.

And a nap at any time sounds good.

I'd object to "old timers" except I've got to touch up those roots before next weekend's festival...

21. And in yours

Mine could be better--last year, Hubby lost his day job and we've been flying without a net. No insurance, irregular income, all the joys of self-employment. But the kids are 3/4 gone (one still in college at home), we're surviving and summer means more work for me, so it's good enough!
