I know… I know. Last year, I said I was done. I said that I was going to put all this costume stuff to rest, after I dressed up as the Nutcracker, for my son’s Christmas lunch and I was the only parent to do so. I thought I put the nail in the coffin when I did it, as I thought to myself, it may be time to close that book.

Summer is quickly approaching we have three weeks of school left and I am so happy about that! I love Summer, I love the warmer weather, I lived in Phoenix, Arizona for awhile, I don't mind the heat.

Over the years we…

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

"Mom, is it a dessert night?"
I get asked that question almost every night. And I am pretty arbitrary in whether or not it will be a dessert night, as it depends on a lot of factors. To paraphrase Cookie Monster: Dessert is a sometimes food.…
