Animated Eclipse
My website research skills are failing me.

I'm looking for baby proof electric outlets, such as these and either it,s because I can't find the proper wording on home hardware stores or they're just hard to find.

Has anyone seen them anywhere?

A quick plug to promote the Scouting movement -- I hope no one minds.

Did you know Scouting is co-ed? Or that kids as young as five can be Beavers? Or that most of the Barenaked Ladies met because they were Rovers?

I run the 2nd Westmount Cub pack but there are lots of other ones out there if we aren't in your area. We have a lot of really great Leaders for our group but we need more Youth!

Welcome to the nascent montrealparents!

I am often looking for information from other parents in the Montreal area, from where to get great deals on kids' clothing to ideas for kid-friendly restaurants to finding a great babysitter to everything else. So now we have a space to share, just for us!

Please post often!

For community rules, I would suggest:

1) Play nice. If you act like a jerk, be prepared to be put in time-out.

2) If posting multiple pics, please put them behind a cut. And please keep picture sizes reasonable.

P.S. I need to make this community prettier! So don't get too attached to this plain front page - in the next few days I'll try to pick a theme.
