How did you find out about this board? — The Bump
School-Aged Children

How did you find out about this board?

I was just clicking around. I bet many moms don't know that this is here. It could be a great place to get ideas and share stories.

I put it on my local nest board just to let other moms know that there is a school-aged kids board. I bet most ladies aren't thinking of the bump when they think of their big kid.

Will you post on your local board of the nest that this is here?

Re: How did you find out about this board?

  • I was one of the people who wrote to the Nest Gods and asked that this board be created!

    I have been a member of the Toddlers board, although my son was 3 when most regulars' kids were just turning 1, the Toddlers 24+ board when my son was 3 or 4 and most kids were just turning two, and of the preschool board when my son was 4 or 5 (but still in preschool) and most of the others' children had just turned 2, but they moved up to the preschool board anyway.

    I still post fairly regularly on the Preschool board, but I'm really glad to have this board and meet other moms whose kids are closer to my kids' ages!

  • Bump Eileen posted on the Seattle Bump that is was a new board and to check it out. I posted on our Seattle board but nobody really responded. Most of the kiddos there are little ones.

    I am actually really happy that this board is here. So thank you very much for pursuing it.

    This.  I don't post on a local board.

    That was from me.  I've been advocating for this board since last December.  Finally, Bump Eileen sent me a message with an e-mail addy to have everyone e-mail to.  So, I went around to about 5 boards (Preschool, Parenting, Blended Families, SAHM's, and my home board, 3-6, at the time) and asked if anyone was interested if they'd e-mail.  I caught some crap on the Parenting board, hence, why I'm not a poster there. 

    Anyhow, that's how this board was born. Wink 

    You're welcome.  LOL

    I was part of the crap-giving.

    No hard feelings, nothing personal.  I didn't see the need for this board.  Most posters on the Parenting board have school-age and older kids.  And as you can see...this board is pretty slow.

  • I heard about it from you, Surfinbride!  I believe on our Hawaii bump board!  Thanks for the head's up.  Now I have something else to help me slack off at work!
  • I just noticed it in the list of boards one day.  I sent in many, many requests for an older kids board over the past year as well.  So glad it's here! I love my baby mama e-friends, but not many have 6 yr old too!

    I didn't jump on the 2U2 train..hehe
