Mom Confessions: I'm on Vacation, But My Kid Is Going to Day Care
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 husband and I have a few days off from work, but we still plan on taking our daughter to day care one of the days. We are paying for it and we never get a break. I personally think that any spare moment you can spend with your child is priceless, but sometimes its nice to have a day to yourself. She will play and paint and do crafts, and have a good time, so I figure no harm done." --anonymous
- Absolutely -- all day, every day, if they want to. 51%
- Yes, but only if necessary for an errand or doctor's appointment. 28%
- Not under any circumstance -- their kids hardly see them at all, as it is! 20%

Are you putting your child into day care over the holiday break? Should working moms do this? Why or why not?
We all have secrets -- so thanks to this brave mom for sharing her honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation non-judgemental!
