I tell my 2 year old son that "Alexa" is sleeping or taking a nap at least twice a day! I can only hear wheels on the bus trolls and old McDonald had a farm so many times in a row lol!

I am a mom who wants to do it all. I have a husband and 4 kids. My kids are extremely active and I do it all. I wake up in the morning, get my kids up and my littlest still needs help getting ready for school. I get them started and then drive my little to school. After that I start my full time job. I take my lunch hour to pick up my little from school, I then come back and complete my work day. I get my husband lunch ready, cook dinner, and then become a taxi driver to different sports events. I am so exhausted sometimes I sit in the bathroom just to take a break.

I'm a mother of 3 all under 4 and expecting a fourth. I've been super mom the past 5 years but now my husband is finally in a position to work and let me stay home. And some day, I won't lie, I just sit around and the kids run the house. I feel sometimes I can take a mental break even if that means the house gets dirty. Especially now being pregnant and my youngest is 5 months. I'm drained. But I feel like downtime is ok. Anyone else feel this way and doesn't feel guilty about it?

Sometimes I feel like a failure. I work 40 hours a week, and I spend much needed time with my son but unfortunately I just feel like I’m failing him because I don’t have a lot of things for him to really call our house a home. We have a home but we literally have no furniture besides a tiny “card table” and the beds in both of our rooms. it seems no matter how much my checks are there’s always bills bills bills and I can’t seem to save for anything because bills are never ending. I guess my confession is I wish I wasn’t failing in the area of giving my son a HOME HOME. My biggest wish for the year 2020 is to make that come true so I’m working towards it‼️ Wish me luck guys! Peace , Love & Light

My daughter was diagnosed with leukemia in April. I can't let my emotions get the best of me until everyone is asleep. I then go in the bathroom and cry my eyes out.

I have mommy guilt about being a working mom, no ambition to clean house, no ambition to cook (also not good at it). No ambition to play after work.

I tell my husband and 8 year old son that they do NOT have a mommy or wife on Sunday nights because I watch all my TV shows. They are highly offended and I don’t care.

The biggest fear I have is that I will never find love, peace or happiness in my life. My mind is constantly going in circles. After a year and a half of being divorced the hurt is still very much there, I feel like I've failed myself and my children. I find myself constantly checking up on my ex husband and seeing how he's moved on, and it makes me feel inadequate knowing I've yet to do the same

I make up fake PTA meetings and then go to happy hour with my friends.

I don't know if I keep my second job because I like the extra money or because it's a chance to get away from my boyfriend and baby for a bit longer (I don't even like the job).

I just went back to work part-time in my office. I’m scared and frustrated that I'm here. Its so scary dealing with people and COVID.

When my daughter was a baby we used to rock her to sleep, not realizing what a terrible idea that was at the time. So I had to retrain her to go to sleep without being rocked. My pediatrician said let her cry for 5 minutes, pick her up & calm her down, put her back in the crib, & then do it again at 10 mins, 15 mins, etc. Each time increasing by 5 mins. It was the worst night of my life. I wound up sitting on my terrace balling my eyes out, trying to drown out her screaming & crying for just about 4 1/2 hrs straight by blasting music through headphones! I think i went through 2 packs of cigarettes & a bottle of wine. She actually finally cried herself to sleep right before that 4 1/2 hr mark. But increasing by 5 mins to get there, you can imagine how long that was. But it worked, I never had to rock her again. 1 long night of hell was all it took. FYI my daughter is 28 years old now, it's still one of the worst nights of my life!

My kids were sleeping on a recent road trip and I really had to pee so I pulled to the side of the road, went to the trunk and peed on my daughter’s travel potty.

I’m 8M pregnant and can’t stop eating my 5 year old’s snacks so I told her I have a condition of “Sleep Eating.” She told me I need to see a doctor about it lol
