BlogHer 08 Wrap up

I’ve taken a long time to write this post, not just to capture the long list of incredible women (and man) I met 2 weeks ago at the BlogHer conference in San Francisco, but because I couldn’t quite figure out how to put into words what the experience meant to me. Well in the 2 [...]

My childcare choice – Daycare it is!

“Strangers raising my child” – this phrase (that I recently heard) really irks me. I hear people say this when trying to decide whether to stay home or return to work outside to the home and send their children to daycare. I have to say - this statement really hurts my feelings since to me, it implies that I [...]

Wondrous Wednesday # 31

This is Joey, son of Josh Clapper from the Swing and Entertainer Team. If fish could talk, I wonder if the conversation would go something like this… Joey - “Hey Mr. Fish, can I have my worm back?” Mr. Fish - “Too late for that kid.

Summer Camp: The Aftermath

Gus just completed his annual week in the mountains at summer Boy Scout Camp. I don’t know exactly how many Scout Troops were there this year, but there sure were a lot of uninformed Scouts on that mountain. I haven’t seen that much Khaki since the last clearance sale at the GAP. As usual, he [...]

How Much is the 1st Lock of Hair Worth? Priceless! (or maybe not)

I can now laugh about this story, but there was a moment when I couldn’t hold back the tears. Most people reading this will think it’s a bit strange – I can tell you I received my fair share of stares at the Rental Car Office. But to all of the mothers out there, I [...]

Wondrous Wednesday # 30

This is my future nephew “JJ.” It looks like he’s trying to be incognito. He’s wondering: “How did the paparazzi know it was me?”      Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo showing off a little bit of wonder in the lives of our extended Graco family of customers, employees and friends.
