Survey Says! How are Picky Parents Rating this Local Gym?

These days, a mom can’t be too careful. Between the global pandemic and general (overall) worry about the safety and well-being of our children, parenting can feel like a veritable minefield sometimes.

It’s exhausting.

And if you’re a small business that works with kids? There are a TON of new safety factors that leadership has to consider now. Even just running my small group of “Mommy & Me” classes, I’ve had to consider everything from mandatory mask-wearing for mommies to social distancing sharing circles.

The bottom line though? We all care about our kids. Our friends at Twister Gymnastics recently decided to send a survey out to 195 of their most discerning parents. Their goal was to find out exactly what was on families’ minds when it comes to COVID safety and communication at their local gyms in Boca Raton and Coconut Creek. Read on for the results!

Holiday Photo Shoot at The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton

One of my most favorite parts of the holiday season is getting photo cards in the mail from my family and friends! Heck- I even love ’em from business associates! Last year, we ordered bold and artsy holiday postcards from minted. This year, while I still plan to order postcards, I wasn’t quite sure how we wanted to express our overall feelings about 2020. You may be in the same boat. This year stunk.

Since my family and I spent most of 2020 in pajamas and athleisure outfits, I brainstormed fun ways to visually turn the worst year ever right on its head. So, I convinced my family to go GLAM! And the best reason to dress up in town? The theater. I reached out to my friends at The Wick and they were so gracious to accommodate our  annual family shoot with Sweet Memories Photography.

Not to mention…what type of local business could really use the most publicity right now?  Live theater. Yes, live theater. Are you ready to see the photos from our 2020 holiday photoshoot at The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton?

Can a Mom Afford to Get the Flu in 2020? Spoiler Alert: HECK NO

“Moms don’t get sick days.” You know the saying, right? I used to think it was a cheesy marketing tactic to convince parents like me to purchase excessive amounts of over the counter cold medicine. But after becoming a mom, reality sets in…your child doesn’t care one iota if you’re sick. Neither did your job most likely (until this year, of course). So can a busy mom afford to get the flu?

The answer is HECK TO THE NO, especially in 2020. Now, more than ever, we need to protect ourselves from the flu. Continue reading Can a Mom Afford to Get the Flu in 2020? Spoiler Alert: HECK NO
