This week in the Scary Mommy Confessional, there’s a little bit of everything: proud parents bragging about their kids, shy parents struggling with forced socializing, emotional parents sad about starting daycare, exhausted parents who just feel tapped out... plus a healthy dose of good old spousal resentment. Who said moms can’t have it all??
