From CA to CO

My family moved here in March from California. We live near Mainstreet in downtown. My husband works in Centennial and has family in the area, so this is pretty close. We have two daughters, Sofia, 7, and Isabel, 5.

I feel like here there’s a lot more community, I feel like there’s always something here we can be a part of, which is nice. Where we lived in California, it just seemed more singular. It was a resort town in the mountains, so it was small but it was always really crowded.

The only thing I really miss about California is the beach, and Parker can’t provide the beach.

First take on new digs

So far my favorite thing about Parker is all of the community events and all of the activities for the kids. It’s not as hot here as it is in California, so we really enjoy being outside as much as possible. There’s a lot of hiking and bike trails in the area we’re looking forward to checking out.

Parenting 101

I think it’s important to keep the kids busy, but also just to get them out, get them to meet more people and get them to socialize and make friends. I think it’s a lot easier to learn and practice how to make friends when they’re young so it will be easier for them to do it when they’re older.

The hardest thing about raising two girls is raising two girls. They’re the best of friends and they hate each other at the same time.

Passing down Pokemon

I have a Pikachu tattoo because I just loved Pokemon when I was a kid. Both of the girls love Pokemon, they have tons of cards and everything, so it’s fun to do it with them. I also share a love of reading with them.

Breaking the glass ceiling, someday

I think equality, for everyone, is a major problem. One of my daughters asked me the other day if there had been any female presidents. I said ‘no,’ and then she asked if women were even allowed to be president.

It made me sad that she would even have to question whether women were allowed to be president or not, but she decided she’s going to be the president when she grows up. So we’ll fix that problem.
