You’ve Been Addressing Holiday Cards All Wrong!

Consider us officially SHOOK! It turns out we’ve been addressing holiday cards wrong for YEARS! And we bet you have, too. via GIPHY Addressing Holiday Cards… So you don’t look like a dumbass. Let’s start with: Apostrophes. These little beasts are hard to place, especially if you are addressing more than one person in the household. Wanna send something to Sarah Jordan and her husband? This is NOT the way to write it:   Apparently by throwing an apostrophe S […]

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

(This post contains some affiliate links to the products in the video) As performers in the heart of Manhattan, my husband and I were intimately acquainted with small space living. With the cost of housing in New York City, we had no choice. When it was time to add baby to the mix, we were still living in a one-bedroom apartment, the size of most of my suburban family’s “bonus rooms” or basements. And somehow, we made it work. It […]

On Halloween, This Mom was Hung Like a Dino

I used to be sexy on Halloween. Not Basic Sexy, like “sexy nurse” or “sexy mouse”, but Creative Sexy. At least I thought so. Instead of Little Orphan Annie I would be Little WHOREphan Annie, showing a lot of leg and whatever cleavage I could muster. One year I was White Trash, dressed in a short tight white dress with white garbage like tissues and styrofoam cups and un-used tampons pasted all over it. You get the idea: something clever […]

Mommy Confession: 10 Real Reasons Why I’m Staying Home

I was talking to a friend. She was telling me how she needed to find a way to tell someone she was going to cancel their meetup because she just didn’t want to be bothered. She said she was going use her daughter as an excuse and knew her childless friend would make a comment about how moms always back out due to their kids. That got me thinking. 1. Yes, we back out due to our kids because they’re […]

Easy Baseball Birthday Cake FOR SLACKERS! *No Baking Required

Hello fellow #SlackerMoms! Birthday parties can be a heck of a lot of work. Which is why I was thrilled when my kid said he didn’t want a big party this year. For his seventh birthday, in lieu of a party, he wanted to take a friend to an all-day outing to a ropes climbing and zip lining course. His dad and I were psyched! Less work than a party, cheaper than buying all the crap for the party, AND […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Day a Bag of Candy Saved Me –Guest Post

When the phone rang I didn’t think twice to run and pick it up, even though it meant leaving my five-year-old son and two-year-old daughter alone in the sun room with a preschool goody bag filled to the brim with Easter candy. I figured it was my mom asking me a quick question about the upcoming holiday. Not for a second did I think I was picking up a call that would change our lives forever and fill me with […]
