The Best Nest

Did you ever read “The Best Nest” to your children? It was one of my son’s favorites when he was a toddler. Enough so that I can still recite most of it by heart. The refrain rings especially true today.

I love my house. I love my nest. In all the world this nest is best!

And the branches for my nest that I have loved best for the past year have been the ones at Piper’s Playground. It has been a soft landing place for my business, and I have adored the friends I have made and the families I have met.

But, as you may have learned, Piper’s is closing. And I am crestfallen for the owners, the employees and for our community.

Which means Evolving Parents is moving. And I’ve found a charming new location of branches on which to perch my business nest. The transition for one-on-one sessions, couples and family work will be seamless. My office at Piper’s will close on Wednesday November 27 and reopen after Thanksgiving on Monday December 2.

My work with PTA’s, book clubs, Moms’ groups {and Dads!} will continue as always. I’d love to come and join your group, too. From formal, techie presentations to casual Q & A’s, I’m always available.

I am actively scouting locations for my evening workshops and parent + child classes. So if you have a suggestion, please let me know! 2014 is chock full of new topics – growing up girl, bringing up boys, siblings, just to name a few.

In the meantime, my November 20, 2013 workshop In-laws or Outlaws? will proceed as scheduled at Piper’s.

Here are the details…Setting limits with family & friends is delicate work. Come talk about boundaries and expectations before the holidays descend. BONUS: gift giving guidelines for yourselves & your {extended} family.

Did you enjoy your time at Piper’s? If so, please take a moment to email the owners at They poured their hearts into this venture, and I would love for them to hear how much it meant to you.
