The older I get and the more intertwined by family becomes with others, I have discovered a real problem.
I don’t have a name for a number of key new relationships.
My daughter is married. She has a father-in-law. I have become a father-in-law to her husband.
So how do I describe my relationship to John who is my daughter’s father-in-law?
After lengthy research, I can’t find any help.
So, I’m going to fix this myself. Don’t need government intervention.
Here are some options I’ve been kicking around.
John and I are co-pops.
John and I are friends by marriage.
John is my grandbabiesmamaspawpaw.
I think after much consideration, I have the answer.
John and I are poops.
So, let us now establish a special day for us.
Poops day cards. Poops day cakes. Poops day parties.
As if that wasn’t enough, here’s yet another dilemma.
My ex-wife’s sister. She is still the aunt of my children. So even though I’m no longer related to her sister, Brenda and I are still related.
Brenda is my outlawedinlaw.
Brenda is my babyauntie.
Wait, I got it.
Brenda is my sexter.
That’s catchy. Will make a wonderful new holiday.
OK, two down.
My youngest daughter is half-sister to my older sons and daughters.
So her relationship to their in-laws . . .
This one’s gonna take some work.
