What are you doing this week? My dad arrived yesterday, and we are getting ready for Thanksgiving. If you do not know what to say at dinner, here are some funny ideas. Also, I want to say, I am forever grateful for this wonderful, intelligent, intelligent, wonderful group of people, and I love you so much.

Welp. ”

Also, two comments from readers:
Sarah says on the new mom’s reception package: “I wish some great events / great life events come with the welcome package. It reminds me of my first grief after my dad died. A close friend sent me an email with a welcome packet (‘Welcome to The Dead Parent Club,’ I guess?). It was very helpful when my family was trying to do hard work while suffering from brain pain (and reality). Things like: how many copies of the death certificate you will need and what, a list of who you should notify of the death, expect to receive wonderful phone calls from people who want to buy their home, and more. ”
Sarah says at the reception for the new mother: “For me, Cup of Jo was my childhood book. I can’t tell you how often I come to seek the advice or wisdom I need. I learned more about motherhood before I had children through Mother’s Monday program. The lullaby post from 2017 is my part of my favorite reviews of all time. The ‘What Is My Buttocks?’ my counsel has saved me. ‘Just add water’ is the best advice. All the mental health support you shared helped me drive the PPD – and threw it into the Grand Canyon! The story my brain is telling me! Just keep going! Your parental ideas about your children have helped me to understand what I expect and what I do. I know we are not ‘real’ friends, but this community really helped me a lot more than anything else in real life. ” [Ed. note: SOB!]
