The hardest part about sleep training your child is realizing you won’t get any sleep for a few days.

I am feeling a bit victorious this evening. I am a mom of 2 girls, a 5 year old and a 6 week old. When my 6 week old was born, the doctor’s advised to supplement with formula. She had apparently lost 14% of her body weight from birth at only 3 days old. After I supplemented with formula, my baby stopped latching and wouldn’t breastfeed. I was heartbroken that I had to give her bottles only. That’s all she would take. I have been trying to get her to latch again. It has been a rough journey, but after 5 weeks of latching here and there, TODAY she strictly ate from the tap. No bottles!! Ugh I feel so great that I can give my baby the best.

I am terrified to have a new baby. That’s my confession. I’m just scared. I’m attempting to finish school and be a provider but I feel like I’m not doing a good job. I’m scared of failing.

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.
