I am so excited I can finally tell you all the big news: I am passing the torch to the new owners of A Child Grows in Brooklyn…today!
Since I announced the blog and Brooklyn Baby Expo sale 1.5 months ago, I have gotten so many amazing emails from you all, from the truly sweet, “ok, this is goofy I don’t even know you… but oh my how sad I am you are moving on (so to speak)”- from Jessica to “hope you find a buyer, because this is the only parenting blog I ever read” from Sara. And each of your lovely words made my heart sing.
But, guess what? I did find the right buyer. Correction- the right buyerS! Meet Kim (in red) and Nicole (in white) in the photo above. These women are the bees knees, the top of the heap, the cat’s meow. I have not only spent the last month on the phone with them but the last 4 days with them, in person, freezing our bums off in various cafes, sharing poor bandwith signals, planning and laughing. We have culmatively drunk 28 bottles of water, 11 teas, 3 hot chocolates and downed unnameable amounts of shortbread cookies.
And, you know what I found out after all this? They get it. They want to keep this blog thriving and make it bigger and better. They are planning more event posts and features that will keep you engaged. They can’t wait to create things offline too so that you will have more ways to meet each other and connect with other parents. And, I can pretty much guarantee they will make the Brooklyn Baby Expo a knockout event once again!
In fact, I’ve been so excited by their enthusiasm and energy, that I have decided to stay on to advise with the upcoming Brooklyn Baby Expo. I guess I couldn’t rip the whole bandaid off at one time.
Will you help me in welcoming these Brooklyn moms as the new owners of A Child Grows?!
