Making Your Mom Cave

My sweetie sent me this article about how to make your own Mom Cave today and I thought the advice was worth sharing.

Years ago I had my own den to hide out in, but over time I moved on to give that space over to children.

My “cave” is now a corner of our bedroom, and although it’s tiny I actually love it.  It’s tucked behind a bookshelf right next to a window, and every day I get to look down over a sweet little garden area.

Sometimes I can see my kids playing.  Sometimes I can see blue jays, flickers and other birds visiting our feeders and bird bath.

Sometimes I can see neighbor kids tossing their litter in our yard or Alex go running outside without pants!  But I love my cave and I love the view.

If you don’t have a little corner to call your own, I highly recommend it.  We all need our room with a view — even if it is a corner behind the book shelf.  🙂

  1. I totally agree that everyone needs a ‘cave’. I’ve never called it that but I do believe I have one of my own – not the greatest view but it’s at my craft table that also have a nice comfy chair next to it for restful reading.

  2. I love this idea!! I clicked on the article link, read it, and thought, “Yeah…I could do this! …not sure where tho…” So I will have to give it some thought.

    …And then I read THOSE comments (on the original article), and thought well, those people have a point, but they just don’t get it. So I had an early morning giggle and went to bed trying to think of a place to “cave up.” My house is pretty open, no real “empty closets”…hardly any closets really. And the only one I could use gets way to hot with no ventilation 😦 hmmm….

    Great idea though 🙂

  3. Love this, Alicia. 🙂
