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 am not a fun mom.
The other night, while on a playdate at the park, I watched my sister-in-law play tag with my niece, nephew, and my daughter. She was running all over the place and screaming and laughing. My daughter was having a blast. I just stood there frozen and watching. I felt so awkward. I would never feel natural playing with kids like that. I don't even think I played like that when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure I'm the most un-fun mom on the planet. -- anonymous
Question: Do you ever feel like you're not a "fun enough" mom?
We all have secrets and opinions - so thanks to this brave mom for sharing her honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation non-judgemental!
