It's hard being a new mom (or even an experienced mom to a new baby) and sometimes we do things we know we shouldn't, despite what all the experts say. But this is a safe place to share your secrets — we won't tell.

This Week's Secret:

"I hate my in-laws and lie to them about our plans and schedule so they won't come visit my newborn daughter (they live in the same town). They judge my parenting and tell me what to do when they visit, and I can't handle them being around. So, when my husband's not here, I do anything I can to keep them away. Even lie. I know she's their granddaughter, but I don't have the patience for them." --anonymous
