Things to do now that you're...a Grandparent provides the newly appointed grandparent with 600 ingenious, fun and creative ideas to explore. For most of us, news of a grandchild's impending arrival will send us into a dizzying array of emotions. Like other major events in our lives, no single emotion fits the bill. How could it? The birth of a grandchild signals a new stage of your life - a new beginning. There are so many different ways to be involved in our grandchildren's lives - and it is up to us to choose the ones we are most comfortable with. Grandparents today are very different from grandparents of only a generation ago: we are generally healthier, busier and more likely to still be working when our first grandchild arrives. As a result, our role as grandparent can vary greatly - from being the on-hand care giver while parents go to work; or the long distance grand who explores grand parenting via emails, letters, photographs and presents; or you may be somewhere in between - providing regular supportive and fun contact with your grandchildren. In whatever capacity, there are great joys to be had rediscovering the passage of childhood for the third time and relearning the skills of parenting, once removed.

There Are No Grown-ups

A Midlife Coming-of-Age Story

The best-selling author of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ investigates life in her forties, and wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. When Pamela Druckerman turns 40, waiters start calling her "Madame," and she detects a new message in mens' gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever. Yet forty isn't even technically middle-aged anymore. And there are upsides: After a lifetime of being clueless, Druckerman can finally grasp the subtext of conversations, maintain (somewhat) healthy relationships and spot narcissists before they ruin her life. What are the modern forties? What do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a "grown-up" anyway? And why didn't anyone warn us that we'd get cellulite on our arms? Part frank memoir, part hilarious investigation of daily life, There Are No Grown-Ups diagnoses the in-between decade when... • Everyone you meet looks a little bit familiar. • You're matter-of-fact about chin hair. • You can no longer wear anything ironically. • There's at least one sport your doctor forbids you to play. • You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth. • Your parents have stopped trying to change you. • You don't want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people. • You realize that everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently. • You know that it's ok if you don't like jazz. Internationally best-selling author and New York Times contributor Pamela Druckerman leads us on a quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. A witty dispatch from the front lines of the forties, THERE ARE NO GROWN-UPS is a (midlife) coming-of-age story--and a book for anyone trying to find their place in the world.

The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life. Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo—he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In Goodbye, Things Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.
