What Lamaze Breathing is REALLY Good For (It’s NOT what you think…) | VIDEO

It’s become a tradition—when you’re expecting your first baby, you drop a few hundred bucks to go to “birth classes” in which both expecting mom and expecting dad are educated about the birth process and taught techniques to deal with the pain of labor. The most iconic of these techniques, immortalized in countless movies and bad sitcoms, is the Lamaze breathing. By concentrating on one’s breath, a laboring woman learns to control the sensations of her body being twisted inside […]

“Cranky Mom” Habits You Need to Stop

I stayed up too late last night. Again. Bad idea when you’re the often cranky mom of two, one of which is a baby who doesn’t sleep through the night. An even worse idea when you are also battling a cold and facing a work deadline. And so this morning, I hit “snooze” a couple of times. Then when it was time to wake my kindergartner for school, I didn’t have the patience (or time!) to do it lovingly and […]

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.

Have you been in this position? Replace […]

I try to embrace this, and admit the un-admittable, because, the truth is, we are all in this together. If I ever want to celebrate our best days, I have to laugh at the worst (and I cross my fingers that you are laughing, too). Top 5 Times […]

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 […]

When a Mom is “Alone” with her Thoughts

Once upon a time, a mom was alone with her thoughts… We all know that’s a fairy tale. There’s a running monologue in my head 24/7, that is often both nonsensical and disorganized. If I were an internet browser, I’d have too many tabs open at once and quite a few webpages would be crashing. No matter how many lists, apps, and calendars I have,  it’s hard to keep track. Life stuff. Work stuff. Kid stuff. Love stuff. Health stuff. […]
