Funding your maternity leave

When my son was in daycare, there would be a moment right before I would leave where he would cling extra tight to me. He wouldn't cry or beg me not to leave - it was just an extra hug that was hard to part from. His teacher would try to help the transition by saying something along the lines of, "Mommy has to go to work and make that toy money."…

Taking Maternity Leave as a Teacher

While it’s your right to take time off to have a new child, care for, and bond with it… the government here in the good ol’ US of A definitely doesn’t make it easy. Taking maternity leave as a teacher in America is an unfortunate adventure into lots of red tape! This is especially true if…

Your child's working week

I am a working Mom. I put in more than 40 hours at the office and come home to household responsibilities. I take my son to cub scouts and swimming lessons, and I go through spelling words with him at night. I would like to think that our lives are pretty typical of a family with two working parents.…

Staying home with the kids

Traffic is what did me in.



I had it all planned out: I left work a little earlier than normal, I had a route home that avoided the major roads and I was excited. I was going to make it to my son's school in time for curriculum night.…

Staying home when you are sick

I was trying to concentrate at work, when I heard it. A phlegmy cough. Then a pause. Then that cough again. Someone in my office was sick.



I admit to being guilty of this myself - going to work while sick. I have rationalized this because I think "it's just a cold," that I can "work through it" or that I…

5 Work Tips For Moms With Toddlers

Working From Home In my life right now, I have two very active toddlers and a 6 month old puppy who is already 50+ lbs.

Please go home, Mom

Sometimes, I work late.



It's not intentional, but things happen, and I work a little later than I originally intended to. It's not frequent, as I am a huge advocate of the work/life balance for my employees, and I believe in setting a good role model for them and showing them that I don't work late (at least…

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…

Adulting is Hard - Adult Reward Stickers

It's no secret that being a grown up is tough work. Once we graduate high school, the praise of doing the crap we're meant to do (school work, getting up and going to school, getting dressed, brushing our hair, acing a paper) ceases and we're all just expected to do these things because we're "adults". Well there's a new trend called "adulting" and I can't say that disagree with the consensus that adulting is hard.
