Mummies - do you have a dirty little secret that you have never confessed to anyone? You are not alone! Take a look at these funny but very true secret mummy confessions. And don't forget to take the poll at the end...you might be surprised at how many 'secrets' you have in common with other mums!
Mummy wants me-time
The TODAYMoms survey found it’s this pre-baby alone-time that mums miss the most. Out of everything they miss from before kids—a better body, more disposable income, time with friends—23% of moms most crave alone time - even from their husbands!
Mummy would do things differently if given the chance
Almost 23% of mums in the survey said they would choose another spouse, 21% wished they had more kids, and 19% would pick a more flexible career path. And 4% questioned the decision to have children altogether!
One mum said: "Although I love my children and wouldn't trade them for the world, there are times when I wish I could have a ‘do-over’ and maybe start having them later in life. I do miss being able to do things spontaneously and only having to worry about myself."
Mummy medicates her kids
You're not alone. According to the survey results, almost 18% of moms medicate their child before a long car trip or a flight. Almost 8% of moms even said they sometimes do it on a regular night at home, just to get some peace and quiet!
Mummy's a bit weird about breastfeeding
18% of moms say they judge others for choosing not to breastfeed. And a massive 42% confess they get a bit weird over extended breastfeeding - so they do it, but they don't always share this information with others.
"I breastfed my daughter until after she was 2, but my mom and husband are the only ones that know that," one respondent wrote.
Mummy uses her kids as an excuse
You can stop feeling bad about it. Kids provide a convenient excuse to bow out of things, according to almost 84% of moms surveyed. In fact, 45% reported using their kids to get out of social obligations around once a month.
One mom even confessed to using her kids to get out of sex with her husband!
Mummy has a favourite child
As one mom said: "I love all my kids equally, but I *enjoy* one of them more. I try to not let it show in my behavior with all my kids, but I fear it may seep out."
Mummy judges other mums
88% of mums in the survey admitted to judging other mums. The behaviours most likely to be judged are these: bratty kids, (over) weight, and eating issues, such as kids eating junk food.
Mummy gets distracted by technology
Great eye-opener mums - it's best to keep your eyes on your kid and not your phone!
Mummy sends her (mildly) sick kid to school
49% of the survey's working mom respondents would send their mildly ill child to school or daycare and hope for the best!
Mummy picks sleep over sex
As one mum said: "Everyone tells you to enjoy the time you have with your kids while they are young, but sometimes I am just so tired and worn out, enjoying them just feels like more work!"
