Sounds nutty... and brilliant, right? It is! Premier Sitter Services hosts Sitter Events bringing a room full of parents and experienced, available sitters together to meet via mini speed interviews. One night; 4 minute interviews.
Forget job postings and emails back and forth, interviewing people in your home and taking up lots of valuable time. Come to one Event and meet up to 20 sitters. Leave with a Sitter Directory with contact info, availability and work experience of each sitter you just met. No background checks are done before the Events; PSS brings everyone to the Event, but parents are responsible for interviewing and screening sitters, and then paying them directly.
Our first Event of the season is May 20th At Paoli Design Center. Cupcakes Gourmet is providing the yummy snacks and we're bringing the coffee! Channel 6 will be there to cover the action and we want you, too! The first 10 parents to register for each event get 50% off the registration fee, making it just $50!
For more details on this fun and efficient way to meet your next sitter, visit www.premiersitterservices.com.

Premier Baby Concierge offers party planning services for baby showers, first birthdays, you name it! We love to work with families to create events that match their style and surprise them with personalized touches! Today Shannon took some tips and products for First Birthdays on the 10! Show.
Fuzzy Me sells the most awesome, unique tutus, "1" onesies, crowns, bibs and so much more! Forgot to mention on the show that a local mom/ business woman is behind these beautiful creations! She's offer 10! Show visitors 15% off with the code: the ten show.
Amy Hetrick, another local mom and business woman, is the creative force behind Cake Walk and the beautiful and beyond delicious Birthday cakes and "smash" cakes featured on the show. The 10! Show staff was excited that we left them for them to sample!
ECHOage is an online, charity-based party planning website. Parents can select an invitation and ECHOage collects RSVPS as well as gift money, half of which will be donated to the charity of the family's choice and the other half of which goes toward one meaningful gift for the birthday boy or girl. Great idea!
There are a wide variety of signature frames available today. Using one of these to have guests sign and maybe leave a comment, is a simple way to commemorate a 1st birthday party. This is a great keepsake!
Personalized books are a great gift, but they are not all created equally! The book Finding Featherbottom follows Felix Featherbottom and his sidekick Pierre du Pond as they race around the globe finding the letters for your child’s name. This is such a great book with beautiful illustrations and sure to be a hit as your child grows and learns to spell his or her name!
Another great 1st birthday gift and keepsake is a set of handprint tins. The Tower of Time is a set of five.
There are so many types of photo books these days that are available in a huge variety of sizes, prices, styles. It's a fun tradition to start creating one for each year and really easy to personalize.
Another awesome personalized party element is a birthday banner. Stephanie Corfee , a local mom and artist creates canvas banners that can be used year after year. A beautiful touch!

Of course, many parents have questions regarding Going Green- from designing the nursery to making registry selections and deciding whether to make babyfood at home. Founder Shannon Choe, named 2009's Best of the Main Line and Western Suburbs ("Best Person to Know When You're Expecting") shared some tips on how to navigate and what to consider.
navigating through process of making green selections for your nursery
and baby registry, it's great to have a handful of trusted resources
that you feel offer reliable, unbiased information to check in with and
become informed about the latest issues and information available.

to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care," by Alan Greene, M.D.
What's so important about being green? Aside from benefits to the environment, we know that chemicals that are inhaled or touched can be absorbed and enter the bloodstream. Studies show that there are several health impacts related to exposure to these toxins over time, such as allergies, asthma, cancers, developmental disorders, and other concerns.Which things are important to invest in? Based on the information available to us today, it makes sense to do our best to avoid chemicals and toxins in baby's environment and make the best selections when it comes to the things baby will breathe, ingest and/or have direct contact with. Consider the following types of items in our homes:
We brought Cheeky Baby Butter and soap from Baby Bear Shop and Le Baby hair gel to the show today, but due to time, didn't get to mention them. Check in with Skin Deep, the EWG's cosmetic safety database to find more safe options.

PBC Fitness Tips:
Check out this beautiful photo canvas by ChicCanvas.com! I was contacted by a rep for the company who was interested in sending me a complimentary sample so I could see the quality first-hand and in hopes that I would share with my community.
Brilliant move, because while I could imagine that a photo canvas would be cute (especially starring my little chicklets!) and a neat alternative to the bajillions of framed photos I've got all over the house, I was blown away by the quality and vibrant colors- especially in light of the price. (Doesn't hurt that I sent a professional image by my favorite photog Joyce Smith !!). Mine is a 16x20 and would've cost only $89! But the true measure of how great these canvases are, is that my husband loves it. (That just about never happens- he's really not easily impressed.) He was ranting about ordering for his mom, etc., etc.
ChicCanvas.com can turn any photo into "an artful keepsake" by reproducing it on to a gallery quality canvas (sizes from 8x10 to 40x60). This is fun, too: They can be personalized and stylized with captions and borders. What a great baby gift this would make for proud new parents or grandparents. Good thing we have lots of wall space!
