10 Years on....

Image result for 10 yearsFrom that day in 2006 to now in 2016, Totz2teens has offered support and friendship to many, many parents and grandparents.  I think its amazing that the babies are now going to Secondary School and those that were teenagers back then are now becoming parents themselves. 

We continue to be able to put on competitions and products come in to review too which has been a terrific experience.  10 Years on our babes are still our babies whatever their ages. 

I think it is wonderful to see how the parents have grown too.  Many have taken on new roles and extended their skills along the way.  10 years of wonderful friendships that I am sure will last a lifetime.

Just think 10 years ago we did not go on facebook or twitter.  We didn't have 'smart' phones either.  Do you remember the likes of myspace and msn messenger?  Come to think of it, the ordinary person did not even 'blog'.  I don't feel like dancing by The Scissor Sisters was number one.  It was the year Leona Lewis won X-factor!  We were on Now 64....   (Now 94 was released this year!) 

Happy 10th Anniversary Totz2teens
