"I'd Rather...": The Lengths That Mothers Will Go To Avoid Their Worst Nightmares

"I'd rather smoke crack than eat cheese from can." GWYNETH PALTROW


Every so often we write a post that really hits a nerve with our readers. A post that opens up the flood gates and acts as a cathartic lightening rod for MOMS EVERYWHERE to just LET LOOSE on those deep dark feelings that they have been carrying around for months, maybe years.

We  are so thrilled that we’ve created a safe place for you to FINALLY let the world know how you really feel about Jersey Shore, serial killer clowns and eating your family pet.

These are the moments that make us proud.
