To new beginnings!

I love writing about my life. This blog has been an outlet for me for the past twelve years. Writing about the things inside my head has helped me work through so many crazy times, particularly while our two sets of twins were babies, and while we were trying to figure out Pablo’s autism diagnosis. It’s time for me to move on, and write somewhere else. I owe it to my children, who are growing up, and don’t particularly want every detail of their lives shared with the internet.

I hope those of you who have followed along in the past will come and find me at my new home. I’m even dropping the LaLaGirl moniker! (Although so many folks call me LaLa, even in real life, that I’ll never stop answering to it!) You can find my current writing at Housewife Hellraiser.

Thanks for playing along all these years – for all the comments, the advice, the laughs and love – but hey, it’s not ending! In fact, I’m writing more than ever. Please join me! :-)


The Fresh Beat Band Live!

On Sunday, I took the girls out for a little mommy-girlie date. Look at their excited faces:

We went to see The Fresh Beat Band Live at the 1stBank Center up in Broomfield. It was such a fun little show! Honestly, I think at 9 and 7, my girls were a bit on the old side for the show – but they are so into music, singing, and dancing, that I knew they’d have a great time. And they did! I really wish I could have taken them to see this show when they were around 4 or 5, though. The entire audience was full of excited, twirling, dancing little girls – they were so thrilled to be there, and having so much fun just dancing in the aisles. Watching the audience was almost as much fun as watching the show.

The performers were great, too! They were so friendly and animated, and really played to their young crowd. Most of the show was audience participation, and I think our favorite part was when they kicked a half dozen ginormous inflatable balls out into the crowd, for everyone to bat back and forth. And of course, the KISS-like confetti cannon at the end was a wonderful touch.

I’m so glad we went. This was a GREAT show, and I’ve been singing Fresh Beat Band songs in my head since we left!

Disclosure: My girls and I received complimentary tickets in exchange for promoting the show.

Wrong side of history.


I couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks, Debbie. P.S. I’m voting today!

Kids and Phones.


I have a love/hate relationship with my iPhone. I love it, because…well, what’s not to love? (Besides the fact that I can’t see websites built with Flash – really, Apple, we STILL can’t see Flash? Really? Okay. Thanks for the shitty maps, though.) I love having my calendar, email, and camera right in my pocket […]
