PEPS Support

by Emily on May 17, 2012

We had the opportunity last week to spend some time hearing about the exciting horizon for the PEPS organization here in Seattle area and I thought it would be fun to share.

What is PEPS?  The Program for Early Parent Support has been providing Seattle area families with communities of parents of young children with mutual and educational support for nearly 30 years.  Their vision is to create communities in which:

  • No new parent feels isolated, ill-equipped, overwhelmed, unsupported, or insecure.
  • All parents develop the confidence to build strong, healthy families.
  • All children grow up in a social environment that allows them to thrive.

I joined PEPS when Pip was 4 months old and joined a day-time group of about 11 other mothers with babes all within about 3 months of Pip’s age.  For me, PEPS started as a journey in just getting myself out of the house and somewhere on-time.  Some days I had time to shower and some days I was in sweat pants.  But what was a miracle of getting out of the house, turned into a special bond with other mothers who were right along with me trying to do the same thing.  Each week, our leader would start us off sharing the highs and lows of the week and then begin a topic essential to our timing as new mothers whether it was about the post baby blues, breastfeeding, child development, health and safety and many more.

The beauty of PEPS and the way they’ve organized their groups is that there is so much flexibility for families to be able to join.  They have groups for the mothers who are home, the fathers who are the primary caregiver (NEW), evening meetings for couples, daytime meetings for mothers with 2 children under the age of 3 and then the 2nd time around mother with a child over 3.  They are also expanding into some wonderful new neighborhoods each year so check to see if they’re near you!

If you’re expecting in the Seattle area, or have a wee one at home, or know a friend that’s expecting, PEPS is a wonderful organization.  They don’t leave any family stranded in the new world of parenthood either so if you need financial assistance, they offer both partial and full scholarships.

Friendships through PEPS have been a lifesaver for many families and even when the group has been dismissed, they continue to get together to share in birthdays, important family events and holidays!

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
