True Mom Confessions

Some days I feel like I am a bad mom. I know that isn't true but I feel guilty for getting tired of being Mrs. Potts, Chip, and Beast while Lilypad Princess is Belle for the 100th time (and my throat hurts from trying to do Beast's voice) and for not giving it my all.

I just found this site today, True Mom Confessions, where other moms do some anonymous commiserating about motherhood. In fact, the featured confession of the day is, "I don't know how to "play Barbies" with my daughters. It just doesn't come natrual to me. Besides, I get too frustrated getting those stupid shoes to stick on their feet." Taking a few minutes for myself to read what some others mother have to say reminded me that I'm not alone in getting frustrated sometimes and that it in no way makes me a bad mom. And some of the confessions are funny stories about kids and make you laugh, another way to get over any frustrations or guilt.

A warning though, there are some really sad posts mixed in as well. Some of them contain alot of anger or hurt behind them. They are beyond frustration and I hope they aren't real. Don't go to the site if you are having an emotional day.

I just found that site too. Interesting. I haven't contributed yet though. I mean, how anonymous can it be? I'm afraid!

I heard about this site on a morning show. You are an excellent mom of course and I love what you said about playing the Beast over and over and not giving it your all. Haha! Sometimes I laugh at Buby's jokes to make him feel good and then think, "Wait.. what did he say?"
