How did you come up with the idea for your company? We played a game at my baby shower: Our friends and family voted on our list of baby names. It was highly entertaining, and everyone loved the idea. We thought it would be great to take it online and allow others to join the fun! For years, parents have been asking their friends and family their opinions about baby names, and now we have a more modern way that allows that! Also, we have the most extensive database of baby names for parents to look through.
What’s your favorite parenting tip? Always do what is best for your child and your family. It is easy to let others opinions impede on your own, be it friends, family, or neighbors. Educate yourself, listen to all ideas, and then make your own decisions from there.
How do you get your family to eat healthy food and/or exercise? We keep healthy food options in the house so the kids are able to make good choices. We talk about how food nourishes your body and that exercise keeps you healthy. Getting our kids outside always seems to do the trick!
