True Mom Confessions?

Has anyone seen this site featured on the Today Show this morning? It's http://www.truuconfessions.com/channels/Mom. Kind of crazy to read some of them but then there are some totally normal "I love my kids but they drive me crazy" posts. I'm not sure how I feel about this site, but I think maybe it's a good outlet to have. The one big message I get from it is that there are very few real "supermoms".

They were talking about it on The View the other day so I checked it out. It was nice to know other people were thinking and going through the same things as me. But there was a few questionable ones.

Some of them were funny some were scary. Some of those women need counseling. I'm a mother to 3 little girls (5,4 & 2) and I'm def. not afraid to when they are driving me crazy..Geez, they outnumber me 3 to 1! I think they realize this! Anyone who acts like their children have never made them feel loony is lying to themselves. None of us are perfect but we do the best we can. I have a crazy life but I love it and I wouldn't dream of venting on a website about my children - anonymous or not.

So what is a "supermom"? Someone who doesn't get annoyed with her children? I work full time, spend my lunch breaks picking up my oldest from preschool and do it all alone the rest of the time (DH travels with his work...currently gone 4 wks will be home in another 4) and get told all the time "I just don't know how you do it". My response? I don't know how I do it either! But I love my girls and am prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure they are well taken care of and happy. I have never heard the term "supermom" but I would think it would be someone who is selfless, spends all her time caring for her family and still saves her family money by using coupons! HA! Anyone want to enlighten me on a better definition?

I know ladies..I just feel guilty telling the hubby and Kids that mommy is at Super Target again shopping for all the free stuff.

Can you keep a secret?... only I know that I went to the Movies, Mall and grab a bite at Godiva chocolates..OMG! I'm terrible..NOT!!!

I luv my kids but I have 5 of them and 1 big kid-(Hubby) that is sometimes overwhelming..UGH..
But I luv them all to death!

Maybe we should start our own thread for Mommy confessions.

Here goes: I let my kids eat things they drop onto the floor.

Here's another: Everyone else tiptoes around during the first 3 months of pregnancy. After all, the doctor doesn't OK any excercise until we reach 12 weeks, right? Well, I ran every day with both boys until I was 7 months pregnant. I switched to walking only when I got too heavy & couldn't catch my breath. My thinking is, if running caused fetuses to abort, every pregnant teenager would suddenly be a runner!

I'm an awful mother!

I love the confessions! I am so glad moms are finally fessing up to what we all know is true- as much as we love our kids, we don't always love being a mom. Sometimes it just stinks. But it is considered so taboo to actually say that you dislike being a mother sometimes. I always love my family, but there are definitely times when I don't love being a mom.

OMG!!! Are some of those people complete whack jobs or what??? Okay, I admit my kids at times drive me bonkers (doesn't everyones?) but to do and say some of those things that they where saying/doing??? I feel sorry for the kids having parent(s) like that!!! I decided to have my children and I LOVE and ENJOY every second of them.....I guess I just think that is how everyone should feel about their children (even though I know some do not :-(

Thank you for saying that!!! I feel like that a lot lately... (having two kids 13 months apart and a hubby who is gone all the time). I love my kids more than anytihng in the world and to ever think of leaving them breaks my heart... really I have never left my kids for more than 5 hours at the most. The only time i left my DD was when she was in the NICU the first week of my life and I have just started leaving her for a couple hours at a time with hubby...

But sometimes I/you need a break too. But the problem is I feel guilty when I leave or take an hour to myself.

My confession: I leave my kids int he car when i go check out a garage sale!! hehe!

I thought of a confession.

Even though the last two years have been the most difficult and trying times my marriage has ever experienced financially, and even though I KNOW we need to be a 2 income family, and goodness knows I want a new(er) car...

I. DO. NOT. WANT. TO. GO. BACK. TO. WORK!!!!!

ooh. that felt good.
