Ok, I loved an article written by Accidentally a Mommy
The article was a "confessional" that I found rather amusing, and I thought it might be fun to post my own!

* I let my 3 year old watch television. I had to post that one first also, because you know what, if you monitor what they're watching, it's really not all that bad. I don't let her watch the news or anything that could harm her little brain for the rest of her life, but I do let her watch PBS and show like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Little Einsteins and she LOVES them. Go ahead, call me a bad mommy, I'm not gonna listen on this one! LOL

* My daughter doesn't bathe every night! Neither do I. There are just some times when taking a bath isn't needed! We found out all to soon that taking too many baths wasn't good for her and was drying out her skin and scalp. She bathes 2-3 times a week, unless she's really scudsy (dirty) and then she'll hop in the tub. She will play in the tub for HOURS!

* We don't cook a whole lot of large meals cause she just won't eat them. I believe she is in a stage that Macaroni and Cheese = Superhero, and I'm not sure where she got that, but those words came out of her mouth yesterday and I had to laugh!

* She goes to my mom's house once a week usually for overnight. (Not every week) I have come to enjoy this for two reasons. 1. she comes back in a MUCH better mood, and 2. I feel rested and excited that she's coming home!

Ok, there's a few for you. I gotta tell you, I thought I might feel guilty about putting this out there. The funny things is, I don't. These are things that are normal for us, and for her, and it works, and we're happy.
How about you, what's your confession?

One I forgot on my own - we have stashes of "secret chocolate" all through the house. There's three menstrual women in the house, and a five year old. Hell yeah we need a steady supply of that serotonin producing mana from heaven. ;P

LOL. Sounds quite normal to me. I'd have totally lost my mind by now if Elmo didn't help give me a break! God bless Sesame Street. :)

Okay so I was reading those and almost every one is true for me too. All except for the big suppers, I cook a big meal every night, but I did that before I had kids too. I think we're all pretty much in the same boat, but we usually don't want to admit it. Let's stop making each other feel guilty for the things that so many mothers do.
