The Scary Mommy Confessional is a place to share things you might not necessarily want to shout from the rooftops (or text to everyone you know). So it’s not surprising that readers use it to admit they’re worried their marriages are slipping away, or disappointed their friends didn’t arrange a post-baby meal train. Of course, they use it to share positive things, too — like reflections on parenting’s sweeter spots. Read on to see what other parents had to share this week.
Scary Mommy Confessions are a tried-and-true part of what makes our site so fun. If you want to anonymously confess, please tell all through the link here. And if you want to browse past Confessions, head here.
