Welcome back to the Modern Families Blog Carnival. I hope everyone enjoyed the first edition and keeps coming back to see what else is new.

Before going to our November articles, I would like to suggest that our December edition be about families and dealing with the holidays. We all know this can be a crazy time of year, so I’m sure we would all love tips on dealing with our families, so please share your stories.

There are a wide range of topics this month so I have tried to group like blogs together:


Family Life

  • Terence Gillespie presents Why I Live With My In-Laws! posted at Your Optimal Blog – I can’t claim credit for the idea that my father and mother-in-law move in with us. Or that we move my mom from her nursing home into my office. My wife saw the mounting nursing home bills, knew a baby was coming and swung into action. By the time she was finished laying it all out, one night after work, she had a way to upgrade all of our lives. She was proposing we live like a family. A multi-generational family. It was outrageous!
