We recently got a sneak peek at the new Monsters University movie by Disney/Pixar and boy was it cute! There has been so much hype around this prequel that I wasn’t sure if it would live up to all the commotion. It did an then some. I’ll write more about the movie later, but now [...]

This is a guest post by reader and ColoradoMoms member Katrina Abel. Katrina is an avid knitter and mom to three boys. When I first decided to learn to knit, I thought that it would be a cute hobby. I planned on making some fun baby toys for my son and gifts for my friends. [...]

We are packing up and hitting the wide open road soon. With three kids. The teenager has his iphone so he’s set for entertainment. Plus, he’s a teenager so I imagine he’ll just sleep most of the trip. The eight year-old is another story, we will need to get creative on how to keep him [...]
If you have ever been to my house, you know there is marker, sharpie, crayon, ink pen and even glitter on my walls. I have no idea why little ones think it’s necessary to draw a mural on a nice clean wall, but for some reason all three of my boys have. I stopped painting over them long ago. I just couldn’t keep up! Thank goodness the makers of BlankZ contacted me to see if I’d be interested in reviewing their toys. Yes!!! Finally something my kids can color on besides my walls.

Valentine’s day is so fun for the kids. Making mailboxes, signing all the cards, listening to the groans from the kids when they realize they have 31 kids in their class, agreeing to help them sign the cards, drinking wine at 11pm and trying to forge a 7 year-old’s handwriting… good times. Now Shutterfly makes [...]
I touched briefly on my youngest son’s medical/special needs issues. Dyspraxia, Apraxia, Hypotonia Oh My! and Chewy is a Rockstar! I’ve felt conflicted in sharing his story because, well, it’s not really my story to share, it’s his. What if he grows up to be the President of the United States and some bored TMZ [...]

It’s been a while since I’ve read a good, light, chick lit book. A book that lets me escape the everyday life of being a mom for a little bit each day. This book provided just that, and more! It’s a fiction book, but has such great advice in it, I’ve dog-eared her appendix of [...]
My boys love the Denver Downtown Aquarium. From the sharks to the sting rays, tigers to the gift shop. We’ve been going since Thomas was only a year old. Living in a land-locked state, short of taking a trip to the coast, this is the closest they will get to seeing a lot of the [...]
