So Much More than a “Nanny”… our Dreamer & Believer

I hate the titles that are given to an all-important role in our world…nannies, caregivers, au pairs, baby sitters. Frankly, if you look at what a “nanny” does – it would be more inspiring and respectful to reference her by her daily activities; she is a Story-Teller, a boo-boo kisser, a cuddler, a climber, a [...]

Wondrous Wednesday #11

“Thmile, and the whole world thmileth with you….until you thtart teething.” This is a picture of Dawn McElfresh’s (Product Manager-Monitors) friend’s daughter “Sweetie-Pie.” Clearly this nickname is appropriate – she certainly is a sweetie-pie! Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo showing off a little bit of wonder in the lives of our extended Graco [...]

(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 [...]

Bloggers- A Community that Cares

A Parenting Pickle

Okay…I’m in a pickle, and not one of those sweet little gherkin pickles, either.  It’s more of a huge sour pickle you have to fish out of barrel at the deli.  The kind that’s so sour, it sucks your face inside out when you take a bite.  That’s me right now…in a pickle, face sucked [...]

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 [...]
