I was at the Cubes & Crayons Open House a couple of weeks ago, and this is going to be a fantastic resource for local parents. The office space is professional and cozy, while the kids were playing away right down the hall. Brilliant!

Excellent idea. It is a dream of mine that you have made come true. Maybe someday I will have the opportunity to utilize your great facility. I hope you have great success and it becomes a trend for future business set up. Any thoughts on going in house to corporations? Or marketing to companies that allow telecomuters?
