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…

Things to Pack in your Maternity Bag

What to Pack in your Hospital Bag?

One of the most exciting moments of pregnancy is the preparation of the bag to accompany you to the hospital. It is also a somewhat solemn moment as the mom in the making is moved to the small pajamas and soft blanket to be used to wrap his little angel ... So as is often taken by emotion, you better have a predetermined list everything what to bring!



As we approach the end of pregnancy, any… Continue

Why I Hope My Daughter Experiences Playing on a TEAM

I spent my entire childhood surrounded by impressive young women. I spent long bus rides with them. Laughed with them, ran with them, and cried with them. This week the gym I grew up playing in got torn down. Well, the whole school is getting torn down, but I could really care less about that. I mean, I'm happy the kids of that town are getting a new school. It was falling apart when I was there 10 years ago, definitely necessary. Yet, something about that filthy old gym getting torn down…

LIFE LESSON #4: DREAM BOARDS- WHAT ARE THEY, WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT, AND WHY PINTEREST DOESN’T COUNT.

Making a Dream Board is one of those deeply personal craft projects that I’ve always had a difficult time with. I never really stopped and thought about why they were so important until one of my new life gurus (Is that a thing? If not, I’m making it one.) said that I needed to do it. So, because she’s…

8 ways to set the boundaries with your child

http://educatedhousewifeblog.com/2016/02/25/8-ways-to-set-the-boundaries-with-your-child/comment-page-1/#comment-85

Why am I writing about setting the boundaries so much? To be honest, one cannot overestimate the role of the limits in the life of the child and a future adult as the results will be carried thoughout the whole…

My Love-Hate Relationship with Breastfeeding (on demand)

O.K., I admit it, sometimes I HATE breastfeeding. There, I said it. At three a.m. when I am awakened for the third time by my sweet eleven month old nuzzling up against my shirt and crying, I have to say that I have bottle-feeding baby envy. I want nothing more than to hand my baby over to my soundly…

Let Them Be Little

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…

Choosing the Good Part

Here in Ohio, our winter has been incredibly mild this year, and we were all really happy with that, minus not having a white Christmas. However, the last few weeks have brought the cold, snowy weather that we are more familiar with for this time of year.

Only this year, we’ve got a…

Fun and safe online places for kids

Kids are starting to use laptops, tablets, and smartphones on a daily basis. Even before they know how to read or write, kids know how to play the video games. However, not all of the online games are safe and a good place for them to develop. If your child is spending time playing some of these ten games, you have nothing to worry about.…

3 Things to Remember as a Sleep Deprived Mom



Cries echo loudly off the dark walls.

As the world snores, I stumble out of bed, sleep clouding my eyes. After a diaper change and an hour of nursing, I'm certain that I'll be able to get a little more sleep. It's in that instant that my 10-month-old…

The Value of Relationships

We have had many conversations in our home lately concerning relationships. How relationships are viewed today. How they were viewed when I was a teenager. How will we choose to walk in them. I’ve heard, more times than I can count, that the way teens do relationships today is different. They are free to talk to whomever they want, for as long as they want, without it carrying any weight as to the seriousness of the relationship. It doesn’t matter that they spend hours “texting” and…

Siblings family and ADHD

Your living with a child with ADHD. How do you manage family life? How do you explain to the people around you whats going on?



For those of you who don’t know ADHD does not just affect the child involved. It affects the whole family. From parents to siblings to even other members of the family who do not understand what ADHD is. The most affected relationship I feel is the one between siblings.



How do you begin to explain to your other children that one of them has… Continue

From the Mouths of Nurses: CHILDBIRTH 101

1327_765762693897_1869915688_n

Childbirth is this big black hole of unknown to an expecting Mom. You can read books, seek advice from women who have experienced it, and prepare in every way possible. Yet, no one can actually tell you what is going to happen in there. It's a crap shoot.

For me personally, this created some anxiety for me 1st pregnancy. I…

Our Vision Verse for Our Children

Several years ago, I began leading the children’s ministry at the church where my hubby and I attended at the time. We were in a small church, so I usually only had a handful of students. However, no matter the size of my class, it was important to me to give them all a solid…

To All The Things You'll Never Be

You’ll never be a rich brat. Mainly because we’ll probably never be rich enough to make you a rich brat, but you’ll be rich in laughter, adventures, and great memories of your parents loving each other. That alone will probably make you richer than all your friends.

You’ll never be the cool kid who throws epic parties. In fact, you’ll probably never be the cool kid, period. You’ll be the weirdo whose mom must know every single person in attendance and their parents. The kid who has to…

A Case for Sex Education


(previously posted on www.themamasutra.net/blogs)

There is a very vocal minority who believes that sexual education for children and teens should be nonexistent, that somehow keeping a child ignorant is "protecting his or her innocence." I firmly disagree with this. Scratch that; make that strongly, emphatically, vehemently disagree.

That belief ignores a very…
