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 can't stand my neighbors' kids, and I'd really love to tell them to stay off our property. Unfortunately, my own toddlers love them, even though they are mean, spoiled and manipulative. Their parents never discipline them when they push, steal toys or cause trouble -- we send ours to their rooms all the time! It's just not fair. -- anonymous

-- I hate dealing with neighbor kids. I want my children to have friends, but I don't want to deal with the kids, sleep-overs, and feeding the entire neighborhood (if they had their way). I just hate having to repeatedly say no to someone else's kid! -- anonymous
