Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.

I recently met a mother who had bought a $360 Burberry coat for her 10 year old. I asked her if she didn’t find it expensive as she would outgrow it soon. She simply said that she valued her child more than money .
Ask yourself if you consider Exclusive and Expensive as the best.…Continue

Mandalas are wonderful. Our Universe is a giant mandala and I have discovered over the years the many benefits of painting or coloring mandalas either simply or in a complicated fashion. The benefits seem to be amazing and long lasting no matter what road you take. So I started using mandalas with children and it helps them focus, de-stress and relax very quickly. In this day and age of pressure and fast paced…Continue

Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,
Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.
I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…Continue

Before we get to laundry hacks…
You’ve heard the expression “going postal?”* It means suddenly erupting into an unprovoked fit of rage. A long-time postal worker friend once told me that the reason “going postal” was an occupational hazard was that the mail never ends. You’re never completed the task. It just keeps coming.
Kind of like the laundry. Why is it that the mom of the house typically becomes the CEO of laundry? As if growing humans inside of our bodies, birthing them,…Continue

The use of smartphones has greatly increased over the recent years and children too have started using these smartphones. This makes it almost impossible for any parent to have a control over what their children may be exposed to especially when they are online and away from you. One of the key goals of parenting is keeping proper and steady attention to their kids as they are considered to be a bit delicate and they can easily be influenced. This has been a big challenge for parents but…Continue

I kept seeing a Lion Country Safari deal show up on Groupon, and eventually was interested. I didn't know much about Lion Country Safari other than animals are loose and you could drive through it as if you're on a jungle excursion. That alone was intriguing, but I was a little scared. I was hoping wildebeests, lions and zebras would not wildly approach the car, possibly cracking the glass windows open and yanking us out like fresh meat. I mean,…Continue
