In advance, I would like to thank writer and mother Cate Townsend from Capitola, for offering to provide us with her reviews of local parks and restaurants. We hope to be able to give helpful details about how child friendly a restaurant is, what kind of facilites are offered at parks, and tips for going out in the world. Share your tips and reviews with us too!


Annie Lorenzini, of Annie's Nannies & Domestic Staff, is offering up her expertise as a agency owner and mother in her "Ask Annie" link. This will include the latest tips from the International Nanny Association when it comes to hiring childcare providers, how to make sure you are staying legal, and why background checks are important. Please contact us with your personal stories and questions for Annie's tip page. 


We encourage you to submit any tips, ideas, and suggestions and invite you to use our classifieds to advertise your garage sale or to list your babythings for sale - for FREE.
