Spreading Thanks At Step2

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others” – said the ancient Roman Philosopher, Cicero. At Step2, we are very grateful for our wonderful staff, loyal customers, and wonderful home in Streetsboro, Ohio. During the holidays, we like to give thanks to those we admire and show our appreciation throughout our headquarters.

This holiday season, Step2 is participating in the American Red Cross’s Holiday Mail for Military Heroes. Our Military Heroes mean a great deal to Step2. It warms our hearts to let them know how much they mean to us, especially during this sentimental time of year.

Not only is Step2 sending words of encouragement to our brave soldiers but in order to get into the holiday spirit, we have put up two Thanksgiving trees. Our staff is able to write on orange pieces of paper, located near the trees and tell what they are grateful for then hang it on the tree. Here are some of the things we are grateful for:

What are you thankful for?

Here at Step2, we wish you a wonderful holiday season, may it be full of joy!

Toddler Prep

My 21 month old granddaughter is coming for a visit over the Thanksgiving holiday and needless to say I am very excited and in a bit of a panic at the same time.

It has been many years since I’ve had a toddler in my home therefore my home is far from being “kid proof”. Friends are telling me that I will need to remove the glass candle holders from my coffee table. But gee they look so nice. Now I’m wondering, ok, what else do I need to do? When raising my sons I never put anything up, but of course I didn’t have a whole lot to speak of back then.

I would like to throw this out to the young moms and grandma’s reading this in a quest for some advice on the prep work that I need to do prior to the arrival of my little angel and her parents for five days. I need all the help I can get.

Thanking you in advance.
