Over the years we…

"Let's Dance!" Valisa and her adorable family are back with a brand new episode of "Mama Jams," our family music video series. Valisa, her adorable daughters, and sometimes their hot daddy, cover rock and roll's greatest hits using only household items and children's musical instruments!
I adore my son. I think he is brilliant, funny, quirky, sweet and kind. I love the way he wants to read on the couch next to me when he sees me reading, and the way he throws his whole body around mine in a big hug when I come home from work. He amazes me with how quickly he learns new concepts and the way he digs deep into subjects that fascinate him.…Continue

My husband and I try to have lunch together at least once a week. He and I are fortunate enough to work only a few blocks apart, and that Tuesday lunch is a treat. It is wonderful to see him in the middle of a busy working day.…Continue

It is an unfortunate circumstance that parents who were abused as children often end up repeating that abusive behavior with their own kids. Most parents don’t abuse their children intentionally, but they may lose control and lash out. Afterwards, they are not sure how to…Continue

Music is an undervalued tool in your parenting arsenal. I've noticed it's so much easier to cook dinner each night if there's music playing. My kids and I can dance and sing and they are in a much better mood than if I just told them to get out of my hair so I can cook!
MomCave's own Valisa Tate has taken family music time to an epic level with a new video series for MomCave. Introducing.... Mama Jams!
In each mini-episode, Valisa, her adorable…Continue

I don't ever want to be famous. Not that anyone is actively offering this as an option for me, but fame is not on my short list. There seems to be an undercurrent thread of heartbreak and downward spirals often associated with being a celebrity (at least according to all those Behind the Music episodes I watched and all those news stories on former child stars). I aspire to live a quiet life with my family and friends.…Continue

Sometimes my Mother and my husband trade texts. I have decided this is unbelievably sweet (as long as they aren't discussing me).
For her part, my Mom adores my husband - she calls him when she needs help with something, they have been known to refer to each other as "son" and "mom," and she has always…

The holidays are a big deal in our household. Although Christmas is not my favorite holiday (it's Halloween, in case you are wondering), I really enjoy giving the "perfect" presents, and the food and the extra time spent together. I like the decorations and find joy in the idea that we are celebrating each other and another year of being together.…Continue

At the beginning of December, on my birthday I gave myself a very peculiar gift. I found a lump in my right breast. A little round, pea sized, lump. My breath stopped by the idea, by the feeling, by the enormity of it.
What did I do? I went on google. The biggest mistake a person could make? Probably, so. I went to my husband. His breath stopped.
Yank’s worst nightmare? His mom had breast cancer, 23 years ago. Nightmare, shitload of it, the feeling of the biggest fear and a…Continue

As any parent can attest, having a teenager in the house can be challenging. Along with the hustle and bustle of a teenager's life, there is the task of making sure everyone can have enough space to themselves. For teenagers, this may involve finding a spot in the house to create a hangout especially for them and their friends. While some people may have a spare bedroom for this purpose, many parents are converting their basements into hangout spaces that teens can have…Continue

Thanksgiving is this week, and I am going to be honest with you. I’m not feeling very thankful. Things have been a little rough for me lately, and it’s not just the presidential election bumming me out. Every morning my kids head off to school, and I mindlessly go through the motions of my day. I exercise, I eat…Continue
