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'm afraid my husband is going to die.
I'm scared to death that dh will not come home from his next deployment, and I will fall into a horrible depression and turn to drugs or alcohol or something. -- dre_bunny
