Thirteen years ago my life changed forever, I became a MOM!
I left the corporate world and entered a world I thought I was prepared for! I loved being a MOM! I loved staying home with my precious Baby, I loved spending EVERY moment with her! After a year of staying home (and I do mean staying at home), I was starting to feel lonely, I wanted to talk to someone other than my Baby and husband; I wanted a friend who knew what I was going through. I wanted to go somewhere with my Baby that was fun, safe, clean, and predictable.
With my Baby in arms, we ventured out and found Toddlin Time of Warrenton, a neat place that offered Mommy and me classes. We loved it, we looked forward to our routine of playing every week. I looked forward to socializing with other Moms. When my youngest was 2 we heard the sad, sad news; our weekly fun play place was going to close, unless someone wanted to buy it and keep it open. I had thought about it, I dreamed about it, I talked about it with family and friends, and decided with a Preschooler, and a 2 year old I just couldn’t take on running a business too.
“Really could I do this?” I love working with kids, I love working with their parents, but is that enough? I’ve never run a business, I’ve kept my family finances for years, but a business, “really?” If I built it would they come? When I mentioned my idea of opening Giggle N Friends, to one of my best friends (whom I met over 10 years ago at Toddlin Time) she told me “Honey, you’ve been talking about doing this for 10 years now! Now is the time to do something about it, or give up the idea!”
