    Here's a bit of a transcript. You can read the full interview at MomCaveTV.com:
    Jen: Hi, this is Jen and this is Mom Cave Live, where we may have lost our minds, but we haven’t lost our sense of humor. I am Jen and I’m here with our special guest this week, Alison Jacobson from First Candle.org who is discussing Infant Loss as well as Safe Sleep Awareness Month.

    It’s going to be a little more serious of an episode, though. Of course, you know, we can’t help but make jokes all the time about everything.

    Infant Loss Awareness Month
    But it’s because this is Infant Loss Awareness Month. So we’re going to talk to Alison a bit about that. Hi, Alison.

    Alison Jacobson: Hi. Thanks so much for having me.

    Jen: Thank you for being here. It’s such a really, really important topic that a lot of us don’t know as much about as we should or think we do. So I’m grateful for you being here.

    Alison Jacobson: Thank you.

    Jen: Can you tell us first, what is First Candle.org? How did it come about and where can they find it?

    Alison Jacobson: So First Candle is a 40-year-old organization that’s been around – a nonprofit organization. We are national. We used to be known as the SIDS Alliance. And we have been involved in SIDS and Safe Sleep forever. In fact, we were instrumental in getting all the messages out about “Back to Sleep.”

    And because of that, the rates of SIDS declined by 50 percent. But then all of a sudden they stopped. And about 10 years ago, they leveled out. So we started looking at the government level and pediatricians about what was happening.

    And it was more than just “Back to Sleep.” The reality was that a lot of these incidents were sleep-related infant deaths with accidental suffocation. Now, the reality is that’s bad news, but it’s good news, because with SIDS, you didn’t know how to prevent it or how to to do anything.

    Jen: It was very mysterious.

    Safe Sleep
    Alison Jacobson: Right! Exactly. It was this great mystery and scary as heck! With accidental suffocation, there are absolutely things we can do to help prevent it. What I wanted to point out is that it is Infant Loss Awareness Month, but it’s Safe Sleep Awareness Month as well.

    And, you know, I’m not trying to make it more positive, but there are things we absolutely can do. Moms, grandmas, everybody needs to know there are simple things we can do to keep our babies safe.

    Alison Jacobson: Right.

    Jen: So why is it that babies should be on their backs?

    ------------------------------------------
    Jen: Welcome to MomCave Live where we may have lost our minds, but we have not lost our sense of humor. I’m Jen and my guest today is Bethany Braun Silva. Hi, Bethany.
    Bethany Braun Silva: Hi. How’s it going?
    Jen: Great. I want to give you an intro, but it’s so hard to say she’s been on all the places because she is a parenting and lifestyle expert editor. So Bethany has worked for Parenting.com, Big Apple Parent, and What to Expect. And so she is here to help us with one of the big questions every parent has around Halloween, which is how can we make it not be about just candy?
    Bethany Braun Silva: You know, it’s so funny. Like I even after 10 years of being in this industry, I still kind of cringe when I hear the word expert and my parenting expert, parenting plus expert. It always seems like an oxymoron to me.
    Jen: It is. I mean,maybe I’m an expert on the digital media side, but with my own kids, no, I don’t consider myself an expert. And this is something I’m definitely a work in progress, especially around this holiday time struggle with Halloween candy.
    Bethany Braun Silva: So this is something that I’m like actively, proactively dealing with myself. And I have a few tips that have worked with me, some I’ve learned from my mom friends, some non-candy Halloween treat ideas and activities… things like that. And really the first one that I want to talk about is this idea of the Switch Witch.
    Jen: Right, so OK.
    Bethany Braun Silva:: And people sometimes call it the Halloween fairy. There are different names. You can Google it-
    Jen: I guess for some kids, witch is just too scary. We’ll make it a “fairy.”
    Bethany Braun Silva: So this is really a way to kind of incentivize your kids. And I learned this from a neighbor of mine, and I have to tell her that I gave her props right here. So essentially what you do is… You don’t have to NOT go trick or treating. You can still have fun, trick or treating.
    You can get all the candy. I know for me it was like a big deal counting. My kids have to count it and tally up all the pieces. Right. So you don’t have to eliminate that because that is really fun.

    Jen: Hey, welcome to MomCave Live, where we may have lost our minds, but we have not lost our sense of humor. Yes, I’m Jen and I’m here today with Tara Clark, who is ModernMomProbs. Hey! 
    Tara Clark: I love Jen. Thank you for having me. This is really exciting. 
    Jen: I’m excited to have you too, and we’re also live over on Instagram, which is like our behind-the-scenes cam. For those of you that don’t know who Tara Clark IS, she’s… she’s so many things. So let’s see, she’s like an icon of the parenting, humor genre. She’s written for all the places. Tara wrote a book called Modern Mom Probs: A Survival Guide for 21st Century Mothers.
    She’s a spokesperson for The Blue Dot Project, which we may talk about in a little bit. And she just started a subscription fashion style box. It’s called the Modern Mom Style Box. Great. So many things, first of all, how do you do so many things? 
    Tara Clark: I don’t know. And you know, it’s funny, like.. Thank you for that introduction, because that was an incredible introduction. And uh, I don’t know actually how I do all the things. I’m also the PTA president at my son’s school and I don’t know how or why I do all, I don’t know. 
    Jen: I just accepted to be, not the PTA president, just the class parent rep for the second year in a row. And I was kind of like, “Oh, I’ll do it if no one else will step up….” Reluctantly.
    Tara Clark: And that’s actually how I did it. At least in my case, becoming PTA president is no one else wants to do it. So I was like, “I’ll do it. I’m serve as Tribute.” That’s always my thing. Like that’s my, I think just in life, I think that’s always just how things happen to me. I just do it. Everyone else takes a step back and I’m that one person standing up front and I’m like, “Yeah. Okay. I’ll do it. Sure.”

    Tova Leigh: Thank you so much for having me. I was just saying it’s been so long actually since I’ve seen you, since we’ve spoken. I was so happy when you messaged me, and really grateful actually that you, wanted to have me on your live. So thank you.

    Tova Leigh: Exactly. I feel like the fact that I’m running out of time.

    Jen: I know that’s the worst. Like the person who’s always like death is near. I don’t have time for it.

    Tova Leigh: I just think that listen, soon, I’ll be able to really say more past than future and I need to get on with things. I’m not gonna waste my time on through, you know things, that don’t matter. So yeah.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mary Katherine Backstrom shares heartbreaking and hilarious stories of how God uses each "mess" in our lives to bring us closer to Him. She shows us that it's okay to celebrate exactly where we are right now—holy, hot mess and all.

    A lot of people struggle with the concept of being holy. But the fact is, even the hottest of messes are being shaped—right now—into Jesus' likeness. In this book, Mary Katherine shares the sometimes-hidden evidence of God's work in her life and shows you that it's okay to embrace the hot messes.

    Mary Katherine will share both hilarious and vulnerable stories about faith, friendships, motherhood, marriage, and depression. She will cover the topics that plague our hearts every day with raw, honest truth and a side of laughter. Mary Katherine invites you into her story as a friend, encouraging you to embrace the hot messes in your life. Because we are all a work in progress, and as long as we are alive, we are under construction—and construction sites tend to be messy.

    From the Foreword by Kristina Kusmic, author of Hold On, But Don't Hold Still


    "MK’s vulnerability, her unique perspective, and her beautiful way with words will help you feel seen, and help your own mess feel a little bit more manageable. In a world that constantly pushes you toward chasing perfection (unattainable), MK will encourage you to embrace the mess (trust me, definitely attainable!).
    And, the best part? You’ll feel like you’re having a meal with an old friend who understands, who won’t judge you, who’s been there and who can hold your hand through it. Maybe even finish the evening in a bathroom stall, taking selfies. Just don’t hurt your face."
