Sometimes the Scary Mommy Confessional sees your most intimate, individual secrets — and sometimes, it sees those everyday annoyances every parent can relate to. Like the inability to go to the bathroom alone for a good five-plus years of your life (while your partner seemingly has no trouble spending half an hour at a time on the toilet, uninterrupted). This is just one topic you’ll find in our roundup this week. Read on for confessions about single parenting, secret love, and more.
