It’s probably in the nature of confessions that more of them tend to be negative than positive. There are positive ones, of course — some of which you’ll read below — but on the whole people tend to tell the Scary Mommy Confessional about the things that are currently getting under their skin. Like their in-laws, for example, or the constant cycle of kid sickness, or how they’re really, really, really tired. Read on for more of a look into what’s on other parents’ minds this week.
