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…

Cleaning Calendar

I'm finally finding my way to a good cleaning schedule. It has taken me a lot of frustrating moments and many guilty feelings that the house is never clean. Since I stay at home full-time, I feel like the house should be spotless and feel guilt when it looks like a tornado came through. I am finally getting myself together and organized after 1 1/2 years of being a stay-at-home mom. After much research and making a list of everything in my house that needs to be cleaned on a regular or…

EVERY STAY AT HOME MOM GETS ASKED THIS: “WAS YOUR COLLEGE DEGREE WORTH THE COST?”

I’ve been fortunate enough that my husband’s profession has provided me with the opportunity to stay home off and on over the years. Like many of you, I reached a point where I had to decide if it was worth it to go back to work (and by “reached a point” I mean every time I got pregnant).

Four Reasons to Get Business Insurance for a Home Based Business

Being a stay-at-home mom can be more time-consuming than the job you held before the children arrived. Taking care of children, the house and the yard is an endless job and you don't get a paycheck for it at the end of the week. For this reason, many mothers start flexible businesses at home and become work-at-home mothers. From babysitting to designing websites, creative moms are finding way to earn some extra cash. Discover four reasons to get…

The Mommy complaint guide

The Mommy Wars: Stay at home or Go to work

When my brother and I were little, my Mom was a stay at home mom (thanks, Mom!). When we got older, she got a job to provide for us (thanks, Mom!). And even though she wasn't home after school or couldn't be around to make dinner every night, we turned out fine. We knew we were loved.…

My First Entry

My name is Mary but everyone has called me Katie since birth. I was once a wild party girl and I am now a military/ law enforcement wife and a stay at home mother to a beautiful daughter. 

I grew up in a tiny town in southern Arizona. Moved from West Virginia at a young age and noone agreed with my country thinking.. (although now its cool to be country!)  I moved to Flagstaff after graduation and did not succeed in school. I was that small town upbeat girl in a whole new world and it…

Ten Things Not to Ask Your Wife When You Come Home

Husband!

I am so happy you are home from work. Before you walk through the threshold here are some guidelines of what NOT to ask:

1. Wow, what happened here? Life, Life happened here. The minions came home from school, and the living room, kitchen, playroom, and all other applicable areas exploded. If I wanted to follow them around with a basket, vacuum, and trash can, I would. I’m doing my best dude.

2. Whats for dinner? Food, food that…

Being broke can be a blessing.





I used to make a lot of money, though  I didn't realize it at the time. That 20/20 hindsight can really burn some days.   I was doing really well for myself and for my family financially, but  I wasn't happy. I wasn't in love with my job anymore, and I tried to compensate by spending the money I was making. Writing at Starbucks, yoga, the gym, spas, masks, and spoiling my family.  When we found out we were expecting another little one, I decided I needed to make a change. I know…

Daddies becoming Mommies (kind of)

When I was little, I had a stay-at-home Mom. She was home to give me a snack after school, took care of me when I was sick and spent hours devoting time to the PTA and the community to make a better life for us. (Thanks, Mom!) My Dad worked long hours, spent time working on the yard on the weekends and drove us to family functions on the weekends. (Thanks, Dad!)…

Paycheck? For Now, Hugs Will do.

Moms, we know the value of our role within our families.  Although some days I find myself drifting to sleep feeling guilty about my growing disdain for housework, about losing my patience with the kids, about not being very proficient in the kitchen. Children, especially little ones don’t really have any idea about what moms do all day. And, for the most part they probably don’t really care.  Which is okay.  They are little.  Moms are sort of like magic elves that work out of…

Mash-Up: Fictional Career Women on TV

Some of my favorite television shows are those set in the workplace.  I love getting a sneak peek into worlds I haven’t experienced. And, since I haven’t worked regularly in an office for many years, I’m fascinated by the dynamics between the characters.  Now, I know this is fiction. A lawyer or editor on a TV show is going to be exaggerated, dramatized, too snarky or silly or just plain scary (like Glenn Close’s character on Damage). We are looking for entertainment…

This chick hates moms and isn't shy about it.

No not me. This chick, Amy Glass.

This article popped up on my newsfeed this morning and as Luke was tossing his bananas and cereal onto the dogs back I thought, what a lovely morning read, lets see what she has to say...

One paragraph in and I was both giggling to myself at the stupidity of it all and just letting her words fuel my hate fire for her…
