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

Now that I'm a mom, I'm making new musical memories with my two little chaotic cherubs. So when I found myself in a coffee shop, with my headphones on, listening to“We Can All Share” by Kyler England and Lalo Crane of …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.…

When I was a little girl, I went to Girl Scout camp. I loved it all. I loved the time we spent in the pool every day, that we went canoeing, that we sang songs around the bonfire and sleeping in the tents in the woods.…Continue

Kids grow up fast, real fast. One moment they are sitting in the back of the car singing the ABCs, then next moment they are singing ‘hot line bling’. If you think about it, childhood is just small portion of life, not even 10%…I’m not sure who decided that childhood should be so short, but whoever made the decision, they totally got things backwards.
As parents, we want to raise our children to be functioning members of society. We want them to be good people, to know right from…Continue

I didn't know much about Lion Country Safari other than animals are loose and you could drive through it as if you're on a jungle excursion. That alone was intriguing, but I was a little scared. I was hoping wildebeests, lions and zebras would not wildly approach the car, possibly cracking the glass windows open and yanking us out like fresh meat. I mean,…Continue
