To the Dude Who Thinks Parenting is Easy

It’s been five months since I spontaneously recorded the video “A Married Mom’s Message to Single Moms” and it went viral. It’s at over 5.7 million views on our page (with millions of others on pages like Distractify, CafeMom, Scary Mommy, etc.) and was covered in US Weekly, the Huffington Post, and Global World News. After years of creating actual high production quality video for MomCave, with scripts, and budgets and full crews… the video that went viral was one […]

Mothering Baby Jesus | Funny Video | MomCaveTV.com

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 of little […]

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 […]

Honest Gifts | No B.S. Gift Guide from MomCaveTV

What if we gave “honest gifts” for the holidays? Like, stuff we thought people really needed with no regard to social filters?

A Mother’s Thanksgiving… What I’m Thankful for

My husband hates turkey. No matter how it’s prepared, he’ll complain. My uncle voted for Trump and my cousin is still feeling the Bern. My daughter has pink eye and a diaper rash and my son refuses to wear pants. I meant to shower, but ran out of time and am hosting in my yoga pants. But on this mother’s Thanksgiving, I’m grateful. And so are these moms from across the web.   I’m thankful for white noise machines and […]

Parenthood is JUST like “The Walking Dead”

2010 was a big year for me. I became a mom and just a month later,  “The Walking Dead” premiered. Coincidence? I think not. Because once I became a mother my life changed in ways tantamount to a zombie apocalypse. If you think I’m exaggerating, either you’re not a parent or are just have your sh#t waaay more together than I do. Over the past seven years of my son’s life AND seven seasons of the show, the similarities have […]

Why does Christmas come so DAMN EARLY? A RANT!

Christmas in October?=Christmas too early! When I was a kid I looked forward to the change in the seasons. I enjoyed decorating for each holiday. My kids LOVE putting up decorations now too, but I’ve grown bitter, because every time I head into the store to buy something that reflects the given season, well – it’s out of stock, replaced with merchandise that I have absolutely no use for in a given season. Have you been in this position? Replace […]

Child Ready to Clean? | 7 Ways to Tell

Last weekend I decided to clean out our awfully messy minivan. You know, the typical mom-van that has goldfish, cheerios and chip crumbs everywhere, along with spills of unknown contents. After I had cleaned out our van my son said very emphatically, “Thank youuuu, Mom, for cleaning the van. It really needed to be done.” My first thought, was “Wow, you’re welcome?” I didn’t realize my lack of cleanliness was affecting his personal style. Then, I realized if it’s affecting […]
