Suzanne Murray

true mom confessionsIt'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.

I feel so guilty when I'm nursing him to sleep. —anonymous
