Mom Confessions: I'm Not a Volunteer-y Mom

It's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession:

My four-year-old is involved in all kinds of activities. But whenever there's a bake sale or a clean up the tot park day or a kids' clothing drive, I never participate. I know the other moms talk about me behind my back, but I'm paying for my daughter's activities, and just because I'm a stay at home mom, doesn't mean I don't have a lot of other shit to do.  -- anonymous


We all have secrets -- so thanks to this brave mom for sharing her honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation non-judgmental!
