Have you Joined our Forums?

Are you a mom in Colorado who wants to connect with other moms? Want to share recipes, get advice, meet up for playdates?

Our forums are growing and we’d love you to be a part of that! We have comfy vibe, it’s as if you are sitting around a coffee shop, chatting with your closest friends.

Other boards can be large and overwhelming and get on some pretty debatable topics. While we love a good debate, our forums stand out because we respect everyone’s opinion. Whether you vax, delay vax, anti-vax, circ or anti-circ, cloth v. disposable diapers, love Coke over Pepsi, we truly care about everyone and won’t belittle or bash your opinions. We generally stay away from those hot topics (mostly because we all know Coke is better than Pepsi by now ;) )

Come on over to the forums and join in the fun! We have some fun challenges like our “15 minute clean up” game and our healthy honeys forums where we can share ideas on how to get fit. We have a crafty forum where we share ideas and how-to’s and much much more.

Don’t be shy! Join today!

. I’m saddened to hear that MomsLikeMe.com is closing their site on October 14th. This was a great resource for local moms to have playdates, meetups, MNO’s and chit-chat. Many long lasting friendships were made all across the country due to this website. They had contests, polls, hot topics and more. It will be missed. […]

Why do you knit, Knit?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have a NEED to do something with my hands. I went to college to study graphic design, but quickly discovered I didn’t want to just design. I loved the production end just as much, if not more. I didn’t want to just come up with the idea, I needed the follow through. I loved the messy printing end, but didn’t want to give up the creative design end. So I took a break to figure things out. My parents are still bitter. And I got married, and had babies and decided what I REALLY wanted to do was be Mom. But I still need to create somehow.

Florentines call them topini (field mice), because […]
