What's something you do that you would be embarrassed for other moms to know?

I was looking in the bookstore and came across this book called "Dirty Little Secrets of Otherwise Perfect Moms" and I thought it was hilarious the things moms confessed to, and found that they are things I do too. Like taking multiple showers a day to get away from the kids for a few minutes.

  • I drink (DOWN) a glass of wine when I am so stressed that I feel like I am going to snap at both the kids. I never want to take my anger out on them. They are just being kids!

    A glass of wine calms me and then I parent with a warm fuzzy feeling. I do this at least two times a week. I do daydream about giving THEM the wine! LOL

  • Sometimes I let my kids eat chips and pop for breakfast. Sometimes I just let them fight and don't break it up...I go into the other room and ignore it for a few minutes. I don't care if they duke it out and eat unhealthy now and then.

  • I'm tempted to do what my husband says his mother used to do when he was a kid---go stand on the front porch and yell as loud as I can, "I HATE CHILDREN!!!!!"
