Caillou’s Mom (Grr!) |MomCave LIVE | Glynis Ratcliffe & Julie Maida

Caillou’s Mom. We call Bullshit. We’ve had it with Caillou. And his frickin’ mother. Ugh, Caillou’s mom.   Our live series, MomCave LIVE, is back with a brand new episode. We’re psyched to welcome Glynis Ratcliffe (The Joy of Cooking for Little Assholes, BLUNTMoms) as this episode’s guest. We’ll be talking about our mutual hatred of Caillou’s mom. (Inspired by this blog post by Glynis.) Clearly, I am not handling my children’s meltdowns as well as Caillou’s mom either. Every […]

LIVE with Tova | We Love Our Kids… Especially When They Are SLEEPING!

We’re a parenting humor website. Much of the humor of motherhood comes from making lemons into lemonade. (Mostly vodka lemonade.) That’s just my bloggy way of saying that we joke about the challenges of parenthood. Because challenges are funny and relatable.  So we don’t talk about the “good” stuff so often. Like how our kids are our world. And that inspires some sanctimommies of the internet to question if we really, really love our kids.  Well, duh. I addressed those […]

Our Year in Laughs | MomCave 2016 Highlights

The past year has been… interesting. It may be a cliche but I’ve walked around muttering, “The truth is stranger than fiction.” (I’ve also muttered, “Leave me alone, leave me alone” under my breath a few times. I’m working on patience!) So before we plunge into 2017 and things undoubtedly get even weirder, here’s a look back on some of our MomCave highlights. That time my kids reminded me of zombies… That time (who are we kidding? ALL the times) […]

What NOT to Get my Kid for Christmas

I never thought I’d be that mother. The one that cringes inside when her child receives a gift she doesn’t approve of and then takes it away later. But I am. I’ve learned that certain toys either aren’t good or appropriate for my child or are just too freaking annoying for me to deal with.   For the past couple of years, I’ve made an Amazon list for each of my children and the grandparents have been great about sticking […]

Mothering Baby Jesus | New Video | MomCaveTV.com

Mothering Jesus We all commiserate about how difficult motherhood is for us. But do you know who really had it hard? Mary. Yes, THAT Mary. Mary Mother of God Mary. And I don’t mean the obvious like having to convince your fiance (whom you’ve never had sex with) that you are pregnant with the child of GOD or knowing in advance that your son is destined to die in a brutal manner in order to save the mankind. No, I mean the minutia […]

Mom Putting Up a Christmas Tree Alone… (No one dies.)

When I told my husband I planned on putting up a Christmas tree alone, he valiantly attempted to talk me out of it. He was scheduled to be out of town for work until just before Christmas. But the thought of going most of the holiday season without a tree was downright depressing. So against my husband’s advice, my six-year-old and I decided to “surprise” Daddy with a tree all by ourselves.  While I promised my son we would get a […]
