New Blogger for Goore's Blog!

And who am I?

For all you Goore’s shoppers out there, I am one of you. I am a mother of two small children: Henry, 3 ½, and Sophie, 18 months. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned since becoming a mother, it’s that there’s a lot we can learn from each other. No matter where we are in life—what we do, whether we work, how old we are, what our financial situation is, what our background or political views are—we are all parents, and we all share common goals, dreams and hopes for our children, as well as common problems.

Let’s face it—kids aren’t always easy to live with. Yes, they bring an incredible amount of joy to our lives, but they also bring an incredible amount of mess, and tantrums, and dirty diapers, and sleepless nights. And like most parents, I feel like we ride a tenuous balance between giving our children everything we possibly can and remembering to take time for ourselves.

In this blog, I will share my challenges in living with two small children with you--my successes and failures, the highs and lows. And I will share with you things that have made my life easier—tidbits I’ve discovered, tips from other moms, and products that I can’t live without. We live in a very lucky time, where inventions to keep babies happy, quiet, and interested in life abound—but it’s not always easy to find the things you really need, the ones that really work.

Before I became a mother, I spent four years as the editor for Kids Today, a magazine that covered children’s products, so you might say I’ve spent the last eight years immersed in all the stuff there is for babies and children, in both a professional and personal capacity.

And in that capacity, I’ve also been a customer of Goore’s, because I know that as a family, they carefully hand-select everything in their store and offer some of the most top-notch customer service there is. So while I don’t live in Sacramento, with, I’m still able to shop the Goore’s store, and find all the products I need.

I hope you enjoy this blog, and remember, your feedback is always welcome!
