Last week I let you all in on a few secrets and made some motherhood confessions — the irritating thing that other parents do. Some of you agreed with me, some of you thought I really needed to lighten up and some of you confessed your own irritations about other parents.
I found myself nodding along to some of the irritations you shared, while others left me confused. A confession of irritation that was mentioned a lot was when other parents judge us — funny because many of these confessions do just that.
