Why I Wasn’t Ready To Be a Mom

We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.

This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.

I don’t remember…

I love to host dinner parties, but I really don’t like doing all the work. My husband is this huge foodie. I make a gourmet meal almost every day.

So over my many years of entertaining…

Teething Essentials

13450932_10100293262528465_4588418572177776565_n

My little man is four months old already. How the heck is that possible? I swear last month was February. We can't possibly be nearing the end of June right now, can we?! I've learned a lot the last four months about my little guy. He is quite a bit fussier than his big sister. He does NOT like his carseat. He's not crazy about the swing. He is chubby and pudgy in all the right places. He loves to be held...all the time. I call him my little hot tamale because he puts off…

A letter to the Struggling Mom

A Standard of Grace

This is a really difficult time to raise children.

We are surrounded by information, but that information tends to present a lot of problems (what not to eat, what not to buy, new epidemics to worry about) yet rarely offers up solutions.

Eating During Labor | Is it okay to eat during labor? New episode of BLABBERMOM |

Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.

Last fall,…

Parenting Standards… Lowered. | Anna Lane on MomCave LIVE

Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,

Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.

I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…
