We are having a blast learning more about local mom and dad bloggers as part of our new Boston.com Moms Featured Parent Blogger series.
Here's how it works. We get to know the blogger over the course of a week. The blogger posts in our Featured Parent Blogger forum each day. On Monday, we ask for an introduction. On Tuesday, the blogger shares 20 facts about him or herself and the blog. On Wednesday the blogger reveals his or her favorite post of all time and why. On Thursday, the blogger takes questions from readers. And on Friday, the blogger shares the blogs he or she is reading.
Check out some of the bloggers we've gotten to know so far.
Kimberly Hensle Lowrance is a mom of two in the 'burbs who has been blogging at Red Shutters since 2008. She met her hubby on Match.com and once slept overnight on the Great Wall of China. One of her favorite blog posts is about her anniversary trip to Paris. Check out her week with us.
Kip Durney is a North Shore dad of three (including twin girls) who blogs at Tubalub. His blog name came from trying to make bath time more appealing to his kids. And he tells us he is "infatuated" with sandwiches. His advice to new dads? "Sleep now. And often. And LONG." Check out his week with us.

About 700 people are expected to attend a fund-raiser for Greater Boston's PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) called "Step Up! Make it Better NOW." It takes place under the Party in the Park tent in the Kelleher Rose Garden in Boston's Back Bay Fens on Thursday, May 16, at 6 p.m. The organization hopes to hire more people with the money raised.
"People often think we have a staff of 30," said Pam Garramone, executive director of PFLAG. "We have two staff members and a lot of volunteers."
More staffers will mean more community education, bullying training in schools, and support for families, things that have made a difference in so many gay kids' lives, Garramone said.
The event co-chairs, Joan Parker and Holly Safford, said they are passionate about raising money for PFLAG because they know what it's like to need that support. They each have two sons who both came out to them.
We spoke with Parker and Safford by phone about how they found out their children were gay, their reaction to the news, and their advice for other parents who find themselves on a similar path.FULL ENTRY
According to a report in the New York Post, wealthy Manhattan moms are hiring disabled tour guides at Walt Disney World so their children don't have to wait in line.
The report says the disabled guides, referred to as "black-market Disney guides," pose as family members so the children can skip to the front of the line. The guides charge $130 an hour.

A Texas baby was towed away inside a repossessed truck over the weekend.
The family's truck was repo'ed in Texas because the dad missed a few payments, reports kltv.com. The dad, who will not give his name, was getting ready to go to the grocery store Saturday night, placed the baby in the car, and then went back inside to get his keys, according to the report. When he returned outside, his truck and his baby were gone.
The baby slept through the entire ordeal and was picked up at the pound unharmed. The dad is calling it a simple mistake and police are not pressing any charges.
Do you think action should have been taken? Or do you agree it was a simple mistake?

It seems everyone is using Twitter these days. And now, even your baby's diaper is tweeting.
Well, technically it's not the diaper, but a sensor clipped to the diaper. And it's probably not your baby's diaper because the new TweetPee app causing buzz this week is being tested only in Brazil. Huggies Brazil plans to launch the app in July.
Here's how it works: The parent attaches a little owl-shaped sensor to the baby's diaper. When the baby pees, the sensor detects a change in humidity and sends a tweet to the parents saying baby is wet.
According to this NBC News report, it's not clear whether the app will be made available in the U.S. But Adweek is reporting that it will not be available for purchase (after joking that a TweetPoop app would probably be more useful).
What do you think of the app? Would you use it?
A 7-month-old baby named Ryder Blair from Australia is learning to water ski. Check out his skills in this KTLA video posted above.
The video, posted on YouTube by his mom Tamara, has been viewed more than 300,000 times and has created a lot of buzz. The New York Daily News reports the video has "stunned the world."
Here is what the skiing tot's mom posted with the video:
This is our son Ryder learning to ski at the age of 7.5 months at Lake Dyer, Queensland. Please note: he is not actually behind a boat he is just being pulled along the shoreline. Next step is to get him beside the boat next season when its warmer again.
What do you think of waterskiing at 7 months old?

A TodayMoms.com survey of more than 7,000 U.S. mothers found that mothers of three children stress more than moms of one or two. We have no idea what the stress levels are like at the Rodriguez home in Suffield, Conn., but love this shot of their three kids, twins Elise and Nora with an older sister who is not named.
The study also reported that mothers of four or more children have lower stress levels. Once again, we can't speak for their stress level, but we love this shot of the Tate family, which has two sets of twins that are 17 months apart -- Emma, Robin, Morgan, and Ryan.
