In my fantasy life, I would have a treadmill in the family room where we keep the television. This way, if I wanted to watch tv, I would pair it with the treadmill and get more exercise in my life as I walked to watch.
But, that fantasy hasn't come true (yet).…

The more toys you have, the more toys there are the clean up. And for some reason, kids never find toy clean up as fun as toy playing.
Living in a one-bedroom apartment, we try to keep clutter (including toys!) to a minimum. I’ve tried all kinds of storage systems and toy clean up rules, like “no more than two toys out at a time.”
But inevitably, a few hours into the day, I’d be tripping over toy cars and puzzle pieces. And can you blame them? Toys are fun and cleaning just……Continue

When I was little (yes, I realize any sentence that starts out that way makes me instantly sound old, but I've made my peace with that), we watched Saturday Morning Cartoons. It was such a treat at the time - cartoons on television for hours and hours and hours. And we woke up early just to see them: Voltron, Snorks, Shirt Tails,…Continue

"Let's Dance!" Valisa and her adorable family are back with a brand new episode of "Mama Jams," our family music video series. Valisa, her adorable daughters, and sometimes their hot daddy, cover rock and roll's greatest hits using only household items and children's musical instruments!
Music is an undervalued tool in your parenting arsenal. I've noticed it's so much easier to cook dinner each night if there's music playing. My kids and I can dance and sing and they are in a much better mood than if I just told them to get out of my hair so I can cook!
MomCave's own Valisa Tate has taken family music time to an epic level with a new video series for MomCave. Introducing.... Mama Jams!
In each mini-episode, Valisa, her adorable…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.

I’ve read this question a thousand times on parenting discussions, marriage help sites, homeschooling forums: “How do I get my kid / husband / spouse to put down the video game?” As a long time female gamer, partner of a gamer, and mother, let me offer some personal insight:
1. Learn about their game. Is it the type of game where they will lose all…Continue
