Mamatoga is a community- a supportive, no judgment one. Everyone is welcome here regardless of parenting styles, political views, or whether you watch the Bachelor or not. One thing that we all have in common is what we call our "Mom Fails" or Mom Confessions, you know, when you screw up by accident, or let things slip because you're exhausted, or stressed, or just don't want to make another pot of macaroni and cheese. It happens to all of us, and it is all okay. And you know what? Most of the time the Mom Confessions are really hilarious and usually something that I have totally done myself. Here's a few of my favorites:
- I told my kids Great Escape was closed for repairs during a particularly humid weekend when they wanted to go.
- I have a special stash of cookies hidden that are just for me, one of the kids spotted them and I told them they were "special diet cookies".
In the next issue of Mamatoga Magazine I want you to share YOUR Mom (or Dad or Grandma or Grandpa) Confessions, and you can do so anonymously or not, it's up to you. Email YOUR confession to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and rest assured, I will not use your name if you do not want me to. Let's help build this community even more by laughing with each other over our little parenting foibles! If you want to send a photo like the ones in the post? Great! Let's have fun with it, and maybe YOUR Mom Confession will wind up in the pages of Mamatoga Magazine, but send them over soon, the deadline is coming up at the end of January! xoxo
