Check out the original post here, please and thank you XOXO

If you’ve noticed that I haven’t been writing much lately, it’s because I’ve been stuck in the same rut that I’ve been in for months; tired of moving, longing to feel settled, far from the goal. I don’t to keep rehashing the same old “how does a person deal with prolonged transition?!” dilemma, but that’s pretty much what’s on my mind as of late.(that and how to get…

Is depression becoming inevitable?

It doesn't matter what you are doing as a parent, if you read enough studies you learn that you are parenting wrong. But it is easy to accept that you are wrong as a parent: You have, after all, a constant walking/talking reminder in your life that you are an unfair, mean person and that you are crushing all the joy out of life because you won't let someone play on his iPad and instead keep insisting that he brush his teeth.…

He's not really a rebel at heart

My son is in time out.



He is in time out for many reasons which include (but are not limited to), talking back to me, not following directions, yelling and breaking household rules. He may or may not also be in time out because I need a short break from him, as he is having a bad day and driving me crazy and…

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…

How to Hack Your Tween's Mornings

"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…

Tips for Finding God in Legos, Soccer Practice, and the Land of Make-Believe

The daily vibe of raising kids is hectic, unpredictable, exhausting, and full of busyness, which makes consistent faith formation in the home seem haphazard at best.  If we search for God right where we’re at we will come to find teachable moments exist all around…

Making Time For You

One of the biggest challenges I face as a mom is not having enough time to myself and for myself. Even right now as I am trying to write this, I have both kids climbing all over me. Sometimes it can definitely be overwhelming. For me, I NEED time alone. I guess that goes with being introverted though. I find it hard to put myself first, because it seems selfish to me. When other things need to get done around the house or the kids need more time and attention than normal, I find that I put…

Going on a Date with My 5-Year-Old

When Elijah brought home the flyer for a “Me and My Gal” night at his school, I admit – at first I dismissed it as something I didn’t particularly want to do. I doubted that he even paid any attention to the note about a glow-in-the-dark themed…

Why I ignore most of my son's homework

My son has been in school since he was six weeks old. Not daycare. School. Before he reached preschool age, he had endured extensive homework requests to put together collages of various themes, build beanstalks, retell stories and (once) to build a robot. And we did it all because education is important to me.…

100 minutes of me time

There is a phenomenal woman that I work with. Every day she comes into the office a half-hour early, sits in the break room and reads. She regularly encourages other people to take time to do the things that they love. And when I once asked her who she could make happier right now, she said she wanted to make herself happier by putting in the same amount of time into her interests as she invests in the people around her.…

Science says this is how you should discipline your children

Every household has a different approach on discipline, as most parents have to learn their child's personality before they can determine a policy that is effective. For us, we recognize that our son likes to talk, so we give him timeouts during which he is not allowed to talk. It may feel unfair to him, but it gets his attention and gives us a break from any unacceptable behavior.…

Just say No to homework

Imagine this: School is over. Your children go to their after-school sports activity or music lesson and finally comes home. They have time to play outside and get some fresh air and sunshine. At the dinner table, everyone has time to talk about their day before retiring for their separate activities for the evening. Your children go to bed on time.…

5 Reasons To Have a Tea Party

5 Reasons to Have a Tea Party With Your Daughter

My daughter loooves tea parties! She'll have tea parties with all the animals in her room, including any of her brother's toys that may have somehow gotten mixed in. Illy will throw parties for her brothers or bring me little cups of "tea" and "soup" (lukewarm water) while I'm working. She's even gotten the whole family to sit on the floor in the living room for a tea…

1st kid vs 2nd/3rd kid

When I had my first son, I was probably the most dramatic, clueless, overly cautious and nervous mother you could find. I thought I knew it all. I look back now and just shake my head at myself. I recall a time when Jeremiah was about one, and he wasn’t really that good at walking still. He found a wooden drumstick and he tried to stand up with it. When he tried to stand up he put it in his mouth, and he fell forward. He took it out his mouth and coughed, and blood shot out everywhere. There… Continue

Growing up too soon

On the days that I think about it too much, I can't believe that my son is already five. Like most parents, I think that I blinked and he went from being a gurgling baby to a chaotic, smart, loving kid.…
