Small Space Living with KIDS! Inside one MomCaver’s Apartment

Moms Everywhere: “We Hate School Fundraisers”

Hate school fundraisers as much as I do? My instinct is to fully ignore them, but that never works. Their motivational speakers ( I call them “pushers”) have a way with kids. They convince them that they, too, can sell enough magazines to win an X-box. So my kid comes home all pumped up to sell, sell, sell. Except he can’t drive, read, or write yet. So who has to drive him around to sell? And call or email the […]

When Mom is Sick | There are No Sick Days

When mom is sick… well, life goes on. Last winter I had a sore throat. I assumed it was something I caught from my son, that he caught from another of the kids in his germ-infested classroom. When my son got a fever, I took him to the doctor. The doctor declared he had strep throat and put him on antibiotics. So I assumed that I, too, had strep throat. But life had to go on. My husband was out […]
