(Hyper) Active Kid

I was recently inspired by a post I read in which the blogger’s daughter was found lovingly holding her stuffed animal that was originally placed on a shelf high above the chair that she was now sitting on. The post really made me laugh out loud since this is what I encounter with PP on [...]

Inspiring Work

It’s in the air…it’s in the water…it’s written on the boardroom walls. People talk about it everyday and everywhere we go, here at Graco. Pregnancy, babies, and family time…it’s our passion and we live the work! I offer up proof of this with a photo of three women (all Graco bloggers, l to r: Amy, [...]

Bloggers- A Community that Cares

As we sat down to create this blog for Graco, we started with the basics. What is a blog? Why do they exist? Who writes them and why do people read them? (yes- the BASICS). We got the textbook answers (and it turns out, there are many, many different answers for all of the above.) [...]

Baby #2 vs. Baby #1 (a totally different pregnancy!)

Let me just start by saying that I am the oldest child in my family. It is only now, now that I’m pregnant with Baby #2 (due in T-minus 2 months), that I’m starting to see the gripes of a second child. (don’t tell my sister I realized this though!) And, yes, for me the [...]

Gotta Love Karma…

As a child, I was a very picky eater (I have to say, I still am). When I wouldn’t eat dinner, my mom used to say, “I hope you have a daughter that is just as bad as you.” Well, what goes around comes around. My daughter Pudding Pop is an extremely picky eater (or [...]

Breaking her off the Binky

When you don’t have children, it’s easy to be a “drive-by parent”. My husband & I have 12 amazing nieces and nephews and it was fun to sit back and say; “we will never_____” – you can fill in the blank. We said it all. This parenting thing is going to be so EASY! Well [...]
