New Mom Secrets: I Lied About How I Spent the Money My Mother-in-Law Gave My Baby

true mom confessions, guilty mom, new mom secrets, 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.

This Week's Secret:

"My husband and I really weren't that interested in banking our baby's cord blood and we couldn't afford it anyway. But my mother-in-law thought it was a good idea so she gave us the money. I told her we used it as she wished, but I really started a college fund for my son. I feel bad for lying, but I think I'm putting the money to better use for my child." —anonymous
