10 Mom Confessions That Show What We Really Think of Thanksgiving

Will you be counting your blessings this Thanksgiving? If you're anything like most moms, their are a few thoughts you probably won't be sharing as you go around the table and pour out your heart. Below are 10 confessions from moms like you 


1. I wear my maternity pants every Thanksgiving so I can eat all the food I want without worrying about the button digging into my stomach. My kid is 6 years old.

2. I'm making chicken for Thanksgiving just to bug the shit out of my mother-in-law. I can't wait.

3. We go to Mexico every Thanksgiving just to avoid both of our families, and it's the best decision we make all year.

4. I get Thanksgiving dinner catered. It's a fortune, but it's so utterly worth it.

5. One year I faked the flu so I could get out of cooking Thanksgiving and sent the kids to their grandparents’. It was the best night I’ve ever had.

6. I cooked the giblets in the turkey last year and didn't realize until my husband began carving it. GAG.

7. Every year, I pretend I have to hunt at multiple stores to find a turkey while my husband watches the kids, when in actuality I’m drinking coffee by myself at Starbucks.

8. Instead of carving a turkey, I dream of carving my mother-in-law’s neck.

9. My husband thinks I do Black Friday shopping for the deals, but I shop online Cyber Monday. Friday? I get my nails done and camp out at the book store all day. It's awesome.

10. One of the things I’m most grateful for this Thanksgiving is that I can afford biweekly electrolysis treatments to my chin.
