Getting Naked. Going Bare. Uninhibited.
The most natural state of being, yet, for most women it’s a daunting thought.
Statements like “keep the lights low,” or “just turn around till after I’m under the covers” or “I’m really not ready for THAT tonight” are not that uncommon for most marriages.

To the mom using foodstamps, I see you.
I see the fear in your eyes when someone gets in line behind you. You wonder if they’re judging your food choices, not knowing that the cupcakes you’re buying are for your son’s birthday. Last year your family had to buy his cake because you couldn’t afford it, you never want that hollow feeling in the pit of your stomach again. You felt like such a…
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. To be honest, I like to eat well, and he does do his fair share of the cooking, but after a while, I’m over it! (Especially when he NEVER does the dishes, even when he cooks.) So over my many years of entertaining…
I have come up with a few tips and tricks to pull off an outstanding spread, while making my guests…

Our favorite sassy, smart-assy Southern duo are back with aRemington Snap Braid review. Well, sort of. The copious amount of champagne consumed may have clouded their judgment. (and beware of some f-bomb language.)
You’ve seen the carelessly sexy fishtail braids on the runway and the red carpet. You know, like this?…Continue

Rushing around all the time makes it feel like you're getting more done, but the truth is you're probably just getting more stressed out. I timed myself driving in a rushed way in the morning and in a relaxed way, and I only saved three minutes. What would happen if…Continue

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.

How (not) To Write A PhD
When I am feeling my most discouraged and whipped by this PhD I tend to start listing mentally, everything that has happened in my life over the past 2.5 years that have made it impossible for me to “properly” get this thing done. Pathetic, I know- but somehow I think it is kind of a common “poor, poor, pitiful me” thing to do. But, I got to thinking a few days ago that, funnily enough, when I am feeling particularly buoyed and optimistic about getting this…Continue

Sun, sand, ocean. The perfect emotional cocktail for stressed out moms. Whether on the rocks, straight up, neat or dirty, any busy, exhausted, mentally drained mom would love to consume this healing toddy in a glass. Like for real. God bottling up His sand, surf, and rays creation would revolutionize the Zen market and be ama-za-zing.
But is the drink as tasty when lugging toys, coolers, wagons and kids to the beach?

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…Continue

"Did you sign my agenda?"
"Where are my dance shoes?"
"I need money for the book fair!"
These are all questions that I have heard from Tween Girl as we walk out of the door during an already rushed morning.
With a little bit of preparation and patience (lots of patience), you can get out of the…Continue

Before we get to laundry hacks…
You’ve heard the expression “going postal?”* It means suddenly erupting into an unprovoked fit of rage. A long-time postal worker friend once told me that the reason “going postal” was an occupational hazard was that the mail never ends. You’re never completed the task. It just keeps coming.
Kind of like the laundry. Why is it that the mom of the house typically becomes the CEO of laundry? As if growing humans inside of our bodies, birthing them,…Continue
