Mom Confessions: I Find Excuses to Send My Kids to Bed Early

mom confessionsIt'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 once made an excuse why my kids were in trouble so they would have to go to bed early that night and I could get a break! -- anonymous

I've told my toddler it was bedtime when it was really an hour earlier so I could put him to sleep and watch my favorite TV show. -- anonymous
