TB introducing Pokkadot

"Once upon a time there was a little family that lived near San Francisco, California...
When the Mom and Dad were dating, he used to call her "Pokkadot" (unfortunately, spell check wasn't available for handwritten cards). While time passed and the two got married, the nickname slowly faded. Until one day, a baby was born, and suddenly he took on the name of "Pokkadot".
The Mom decided she just couldn't return to the corporate world after Pokkadot was born. After about a year and a half of being a Mom, she decided she was ready to embark on a new adventure, but just couldn't figure out what. So, the Mom and Dad put their heads together and thought really hard about what she loved and what she was good at...
She loved shopping for her Pokkadot, but always had a difficult time finding the perfect all-in-one internet store. She had a background in the internet business, and of course, a background in shopping. The Dad builds websites, and is just real computer smart.
So... that's the story of Pokkadot's Mom and Dad and how our dream came to be."
