"Have you thought about writing your family history, but found yourself stuck from the start? Writing a family narrative can be a daunting task, but Karen Jones Gowen found a way to bring her mother's story to life." (Homespun Magazine)

U is for Uncle Forrest

Often in a large family, the younger children will become aunts and uncles while still kids themselves. Forrest, our youngest boy, became an uncle at age 10. As my grandchildren grew, they of course bonded with Forrest who was closest to their age and liked to play with them. He was their favorite, (altho they never really called him Uncle Forrest.)

One of my little grandsons called his other grandma Grandma and he called me "Forrest's mom." Or "the grandma who lives in Forrest's house."


  1. Oh how cute. Forrest's mom. Great story.

  2. Aw Uncle Forrest. That is just too cute :) Aw.

  3. Karen, how do you pronounce Seanchaithe? Can you show it by spelling it out phonetically? I always have a craving to find out these things. Thanks.

  4. Betty, One of my Irish followers taught me that word, and how to pronounce it, but I have forgotten. I'll go to Ann or Brigid's blog and ask them and get back to you!


I don't post very often, but if you leave a comment I'll know someone is out there reading. And then I will post more! Bwa ha ha!
