About raelenedersch

I have recently moved to Grande Prairie in August. I became a first time mom in May 2016 to my little man Nixon. I am currently transitioning from a full time office position to my new role as Director/Owner of Grande Prairie for Mommy Connections. Very excited about this change. What else about me?? I have been described as bubbly with a little crazy and I absolutely LOVE HIPPOS!!! I look forward to connecting with other moms and programs within my new community.

Product Review: Bath Squiggler

We tried out these bath bombs and fell in love with how amazing they smell.

Super fizzy in the tub and didn’t dye the monster a weird color.

The toy was a little simple and small and was destroyed in seconds but held his attention when it was coming out.

These are available at both Once Upon A Child Grande Prairie and Carry Me Mommy  in town!

Age Appropriate Chores for Kids: Lists and Ideas for Every Age

Age Appropriate Chores for Kids: Lists and Ideas for Every Age

As children get older, you’ll soon begin to ask yourself, “what chores are appropriate for each age?”

There is no cookie-cutter answer because each child is different in capabilities and interests. However, there are some general rules you can follow to guide kids into doing chores that they can succeed at.

They’ll feel good about contributing to their household and learn responsibility at the same time.

New Classes Just Released!


New Classes have just been announced starting in APRIL!  Space is limited so join today!

Becoming a mom is the BEST experience of your life, but a little hidden truth is that it can also be isolating.
Having a mom group to see every week (and look forward to) can make mothering better, in all ways. Are you having the greatest week ever? Sharing your successes (no matter how small), helps to amplify that good feeling! But what if you are having a harder week? Well, sharing the downs actually make the weight feel less, makes it easier to weather whatever storm you might be facing.
Not only do our programs allow for talk time in every single class, but we also get you out doing fun things with your new friends so that each week is something exciting to look forward to with your little one!!


This modernized and fun program is held on Friday’s and includes Mommy & Me photography session, and more! Each class leaves plenty of time for mom-talk and baby-babble each week so that you are sure to make friends with everyone!

Babies are usually between 0-12 months old, non-mobile and crawlers/early walkers!
