Becoming a mother is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I feel like this is who I was always meant to be. I wake up every day excited to take care of our three boys (Colton 3 years, Knox 2 years, Lucas 9 months). They make me excited about life! I am originally from Malibu, CA. I moved here in 2011 with my husband John who was born and raised in Denver. He retired five years ago from a 14 year career in the NHL. I am a realtor and have been in real estate my whole life. My family owns and manages a property management company in Santa Monica, CA and I always knew I would end up doing the same thing. Now I’m busy with our three boys and love every minute of it. We love raising our boys in Colorado and we feel like this is the best place for them. I am so happy to have found the MOB group and excited to get to know you all!
Nicole Bansbach and Brevin 10, Elvis 9 and Louis Philip Bansbach V 11 months.
Raised in Philadelphia, the beaches of the West Coast came calling. Age 20, I moved to Los Angeles, where I worked as a Fashion Editor for Teen Magazine as well as Producer for E! Entertainment and PR Director for Diesel Jeans for over a decade. Landing in the beautiful Mile High City in 2010, I’ve never looked back. My husband “Bart" and our busy three boys (Brevin 10, Elvis 9 and Louie 11 months) have kept me on my toes. Fashion life for now is on the back burner and my feet are firmly planted in the next phase of my career…Full Time Mom! I wouldn’t have it any other way. My boys love basketball, swimming, skiing and skittles, little baby Louie is always along for the ride.
Meghan Berglind and her adorable boys!
Meghan loves Colorado life with her husband Carl and her boys August, Graham and Theo. Getting those boys into skiing is her goal this winter! Meghan is an attorney for the Federal Government and is busy balancing her family and work life.
Life with the Perry boys is never dull, always interesting and very active. I have always known since I was a teenager that I would be a mom to only boys. I never saw myself raising girls. I can honestly say I am a very proud mom and feel extremely lucky to be a mom of only boys. They keep me active, laughing, adventurous and loved. I so enjoy watching their different personalities emerge and seeing three unique boys take on the world in such different ways. As my mom always said, "how lucky am I to have you and what a honor it is to get to raise you," I could not agree more with this statement. Being a mom to three fantastic boys is a privilege and a great club to be part of for a lifetime.

Jake, Chad and Trent with MoB Mom, Jamie
I grew up In Utah with three older brothers. I was a cheerleader and played softball. I was a paralegal after college and lived in Arizona. I met my husband playing softball and we moved to Colorado. I have been blessed with three boys. Jake plays basebal and is studying business at Hastings College. Chad is at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo studying mechanical engineering. Trent is at Valor Christian High School. I am a stay at home mom and love to exercise and play tennis. However, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my boys. wheter itis playing a board game, watching their sproting events or just having dinner, they bring me such joy. I love this phase I am in with my boys. They are independent and loving young men, but I know that being a mom will be and is an ongoing process of teaching, supporting and showing them unconditional love. The future is unknown: however, I look forward to seeing what it holds for me, my husband and three boys. Hello to empty nesting, graduations, retirement, travel, daughters-in-laws and grand babies...maybe a granddaughter or two!

I run a global sales team for a consulting company and when I am not traveling around the world I am traveling around metro Denver watching basketball, football, baseball or soccer games. These little monkeys are my hobby for the foreseeable future. Thank goodness for the MoB so I can have a bit of fun every now and then.
Got them out their sports gear for this pic. Trust me, they still ended up with grass stained knees by the end of the photo shoot.

I love my boys! Rhys is a fun loving, spirited, hilarious, sweet, kind, bright, empathic and animated 1st grader at Stanely British Primary School. Kelly is a lovely, sensitive, intelligent, quick-witted, sweet, caring 2nd grader at SBPS. Beckett is a highly independent, intelligent, thoughtful sweet, funny, focused Kindergartener at The Logan School. They are the best of friends and spend time everyday playing games, riding bikes or outside. They are all extremely athletic playing lots of soccer, basketball and football.

In my spare time, I love to play tennis, and I am continually organizing social events for my friends and family, cooking and helping out with school fundraising. Barely a minute goes by when I have nothing to do, but if it does, you will find me sitting enjoying a quiet cup of tea somewhere.

I have been a stay at home mom for 12 years now. All 3 boys are very active in lacrosse and football. In their off seasons we love to ski and camp. Prior to becoming a mom I was a middle school teacher for 8 years.
My first MoB event was about 4 years ago. I remember thinking, "These women get it. They know what my everyday life is all about because they live it." I am very grateful for this group. Not only have I learned a lot through the years, I have had tons of fun and made some really great friends.
JC, Jackson and Gracen with MoBster Mom, Amy
I love being a mom of 3 boys. I grew up with four brothers so I have been blessed with boys all around for my entire life. I have a very large extended family that we spend as much time with as possible. My boys play lacrosse, soccer and basketball. They also take karate and ski!
I love to go to the mountains with friends and family. I love to read and take in a fair share of concerts /shows as well as nights out dancing.

Susan and her boys Morey (2001), Alexander (2003) and Reed (2004)
As all moms in this group know, a house of boys is non-stop action, balls bouncing, wrestling, laughing and doing really dumb things like rolling around in the snow with shorts on because they were challenged on SnapChat. When the boys are busy at school, I am responsible for the North and South America business development teams for DOCS, a division of ICON. We provide resourcing solutions to support pharmaceutical and life science organizations in the clinical development process. I watch a lot of sports! Not only my kids, but I love football. I love to travel, ski, read, work out and do yoga. Most importantly, I love being wi th my family hanging out and watching movies.
Hallie Rand and Jayse (2005), Orion (2007) and Golden (2010)
I work as a real estate agent in the moments i am not occupied by being a mother of 3 busy boys. My husband and I have been together for 17 years. We live in Castle Pines. I find companionship through the MoB because our experiences are so similar and our lives are so busy that carving out time once a month is all any of us have time for. My eldest son and I are going to India this spring for a service trip which we are both extremely excited for! I have one child who has a baseball in place of his brain, another with a soccer ball and another wi th UFC fighting in the place of his brain. Being a mom of boys has been the best part of my life.

My life with boys is just what I wanted. I'd have more boys if I could. God made me to be a Mom of boys. We like to ski and read and just spend time together. Our family prefers to hang just the 5 of us even if that is at home. They most definitely take good care of me and make me feel wanted and special...at least for the moment. Life outside boys is very fulfilling. Being a mother has brought me purpose. I'm at stay at home Mom who embraces it with no regrets. I have devoted, loyal and loving friends who I trust with my heart and my boys well being. I like to exercise at Orange Theory and Core Power yoga, volunteer at school and ski!
