Day 7 of the Countdown!

Day 7 of the 10 -day Countdown: Meet Ross Skye!

Hey, how’s it going? I’m Ross Skye, owner and CEO of BabyCare, a company that designs, manufactures, and sells a whole line of upscale baby products. I started the company after finishing university. It’s a bit ironic that I ended up making a living from baby products when – I don’t advertise this too broadly – I don’t have and don’t ever have plans to have kids of my own. I studied engineering and one of the competitions we had at school involved designing a functional and safe high chair. My team won the competition and the direction of my future was nailed. I went on to build a team of talented designers, engineers, and marketing professionals, and BabyCare was born. I’ve settled in Mapleton where I grew up – raised by Hampton Shorley. He’s my surrogate dad – and still is around to cook and take care of the house. Long hours and hard work are needed to build a successful company – and having Hampton around leaves me time for it. If you’re in Mapleton – and you have kids – drop by. We’re always looking for product testers. Better yet, look for BabyCare products wherever high-end baby merchandise is sold and support Mapleton. Until then, have a good one.

A bit about Don’t Drop the Baby ~

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is only second to her skill at matchmaking!

Ross Skye, owner of BabyCare, a high-end line of baby merchandise, is injured in an accident, and Brogan uses her cooking, medical – and matchmaking – skills to help him out. Dr. Lauren Ross is taking care of her nephew for two weeks, and Brogan agrees to babysit while Lauren is at work.

Two years ago, Ross and Lauren dated. At that time, Lauren wanted kids, but Ross wasn’t keen. Now the tables have turned, and Ross is trying to convince Lauren that they’d make an awesome parenting team. Brogan suggests they test drive parenthood by looking after a simulated baby for a week – a computerized version that eats, sleeps, wets, and cries. Ross and Lauren experience the “joy” of having a newborn firsthand, and the bar is set pretty low. Their first goal is: don’t drop the baby. The second goal is to find out if their love for each other will survive the test of…parenting.

Don’t Drop the Baby will be released on Feb. 4. It’ll be 99cents – a bargooooon! The buy link is
