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.

New LooK

Check out our new look!

We’re thrilled to reveal the new look of Mommy Connections! Months of hard work went into creating this fresh new logo that reflects the business we’ve become and our unique place in the market. We hope that you love it as much as we do!

We’re thrilled to reveal the new look of Mommy Connections! Months of hard work went into creating this fresh new logo that reflects the business we’ve become and our unique place in the market.

Here’s what the different elements mean:

-The open circle around the ‘M’ represents the support and community you’ll find within our programs (it also forms a subtle letter ‘C’ for ‘Connections’)

-The three dots to the right of the ‘M’ represent the main types of classes we offer (Mom-to-be, Mom & Baby, Mom & Tot)

-The combination of fonts speak to the yin and yang of motherhood – that things can be both perfect and a little messy all at the same time

Our new brand also includes these (super cute!) icons to represent the three main types of classes we offer:

Mom-To-Be is all about preparing for pregnancy, birth and early parenthood
Mom & Baby offers new moms an opportunity to learn, laugh and connect with babe in tow

Mom & Tot is a great way to try new things and have fun with your toddler

We hope you love the new look as much as we do!

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!
