15 True Mom Confessions

We love these real confessions from Romi Lassally and the moms at Truemomconfessions.com, who put out a book filled with more of these funny, poignant, and painfully true declarations.

Can you relate to these? And do you have any of your own mom confessions? If so, leave them in the comments below.

As told by real moms…

MOM CONFESSION: My son knows he’s not allowed downstairs until 9 AM. He wakes up, calls down to let me know he’s awake, goes potty and then climbs back in bed with a few toys. Reason why? He’s been told that between 8 AM and 9 AM, Mommy’s fighting the monster that lives in the laundry basket.

MOM CONFESSION:It’s been one of those days. I just ate a full pint of Häagen- Dazs, and when my three year old asked me what I was eating, I told her it was special medicine for mommies because I didn’t want to share.

MOM CONFESSION:I just found out a week ago that I have breast cancer. I have not told anyone. Not even my husband. And I don’t think I will be able to let my kids know.

MOM CONFESSION:Maybe it’s wrong, but I judge other moms by how clean their kids are . . . dirty kid = bad mom. Is it seriously that hard to break out a wipe and take the crud off of your kid’s face?

MOM CONFESSION:I flush the toilet (in the guest bathroom) when my husband is taking a shower because I resent the fact that he actually gets any time alone without the kids bothering him. I know he gets a shot of cold water because he screams. I smile.
