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 thought once I had my twin daughters I'd become a baby person. While I love my kids and really enjoy being their mom, I don't have much patience for other babies or kids. I don't really like my friends' kids or sitting near babies in restaurants. I'm kind of disappointed in myself because I thought I would feel more maternal when I became a mom. But I don't."  —Anonymous
