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:

I let my dog "clean" my three-year-old. Sometimes when my son has food on himself after eating -- spaghetti sauce on his hands, raspberries on his face, something stuck to his foot -- I let my dog lick it clean instead of using a wash cloth. I don't do it all the time and a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's. Plus, it makes my son laugh.  -- 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!
