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 sometimes wish I didn't have kids. I love my sons, I do, and if I had to have kids, they're the boys I'd want. I just wish I wasn't a mom yet. I'd like to have these same kids, but maybe in another 10 years. I feel like I didn't get to 'live' enough, and some days I just wish I could have fun and not have the responsibility of being a mom." -- anonymous
