A site for parents, guardians, extended family and friends... all those involved in raising children in and around Canton, Potsdam and beyond in northern New York State. 


"How do other people know these things? Is parental knowledge - of things like where the local sandbox is, and 'why yes, there is a children's museum there' - something that accumulates like barnacles... gradually and from resting in place? If so, I'd better get attracting barnacles, as I have now been here longer than most of my new friends...!"
