BBC Dad | Parenthood Considered at Odds with Professionalism. But Why?

Unless you’re living under a rock (and maybe even then if you have wifi), you’ve seen the video of professor/dad Robert Kelly that went viral this week. During a very professorial if somewhat dry explanation about South Korea on the BBC, his interview was hilariously interrupted by first a toddler, then a baby in a walker, and then a panicked wife/mom trying to corral them away. The departure of the toddler knocks over some books stacked on a bed, which […]

World’s Worst Valentine’s Day Gifts

I’m a holiday person. My husband, no so much. He means well. Unlike me, he doesn’t think (and by that I mean plan obsessively) about whatever the next holiday is. So, for as long as I can remember, he’s given me flowers, a card, and candy on Valentine’s Day. I probably don’t deserve much more than that, since I tend to have some deep-seated sexist view that Valentine’s Day gifts are FOR the ladies, FROM the gents. Though I’d love […]

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 […]
