Ok, so CafeMom Studios just launched this awesome new show called Coffee Shop Confessions, and I'm already hooked. And I'm not saying that because it's hosted by Andrew Shue (who can resist Billy from Melrose Place?).
I'm loving the concept because there's really nothing better than hearing other moms say things out loud that you feel inside, but may not be willing to admit. Every Friday, the show will feature one anonymous confession from a real mom, which will then be discussed by the mom panel -- Alex McCord from Real Housewives of New York, Timberly Whitfield, and Julia Knight.
Episode 1 premiered today, and the confession featured was a real doozie. One mom admitted that while she adores her kids, she also loves going away alone on business trips to indulge in a little bit of "me" time to relax and unwind. Can I get a huge Amen?
Don't get me wrong, I love every single second I spend with my son. But I value my alone time just as much, and I believe it's 100 percent necessary for maintaining my sanity. There's nothing remotely selfish about wanting to have a little time alone to enjoy a full night of uninterrupted sleep, a couple glasses of wine, and a good book, or just curl up in a fluffy hotel bed, order room service, and watch what you want to watch on T.V. all night. Every time I get away even for a day or two, I come back recharged, calm, and feeling like a better parent.
Watch Episode 1 of Coffee Shop Confessions in the video clip below to see if the mom panel agrees!
