Why did we make the change? We felt it was time to embrace all parents, not just moms.  I get comment from dads who read the site, saying they feel a little “funny” reading a “mom site.”  So in order to embrace moms, dads, grandparents, and even other family members, we’ve changed our name to reflect that.
