Two years! We can hardly believe how our dream of having a helpful resource for local parents has grown to what it is today. And it’s only because of YOUR support, passion, encouragement and belief in us that we’re able to celebrate two incredible years.
Over those two years we’ve published hundreds of posts (literally! hundreds! 637 to be exact) about topics that are close to our heart, that you have asked for, that make you laugh and cry. We’re passionate about writing the story of the modern Rochester parent…thank you for your participation in that matter.
As we head into our third year we have so much fun stuff planned for you! You’ve made it very clear to use that you love our local resources…we’ll continue to bring you those and so much more. We’ll continue with our monthly events round up guides while continually working to make our events calendar even more robust and as comprehensive as we can. We’ll continue to publish large seasonal events guides and bucket lists…we hear you! You love these and we’re so glad you do.
Additionally, we’ll be rolling out some fun initiatives next year that will allow YOU to have a greater voice on this site…because ultimately, that’s what it’s all about. Building up this amazing community of mothers to give you a voice as we work to build Rochester and the surrounding area into an even stronger community as we raise our families. We truly are stronger together.
