Pictures of your BOOOOOOS Needed!

posted by:

[photopress:milehighmammas.gif,full,1]One month ago today, The Denver Post did a soft launch for Mile High Mamas. Since that time, we have had thousands of page views, 37 blog posts and 469 comments. Thank you for helping us building our your community!

Now, help us build our Cute Kid Pics! Download your favorite Halloween photos of your children, past or present. The best kid pic will win a copy of the fantastically fun cookbook Everything Kids Gross Cookbook. Because don’t children need more opportunities to get their hands dirty? 🙂


In honor of this season of tricks and [lots of] treats, allow me to impart the lesson my daughter learned last Halloween. I affectionally call it her “Anti-Sugar Ad”:

Picture #1: This is sugar.

This is sugar

Picture #2: This is your child on sugar (when over-consumption deludes the young child to think she can leap off the arm of the couch and land on her face without consequence.)

your child on sugar

Any questions?

    I have a hard time not rolling my eyes when fellow moms complain about how rambunctious their kids are…..while they’re letting them drink a COKE!

    Too cute! In Steamboat they close the main street and the kids have the run of downtown. The merchants hand out the candy and it’s super fun. One big street party. The parents get dressed up too!
