As I suggested last week, every parent has secrets. Unfortunately, not every parent has a secret identity, or a blog via which they can express their innermost feelings under sarcastic cover (I swear!) like I do. There’s nowhere parents can go to escape the wrath of their spouse and children and the authorities.
Until now. I have created a “Buried Secrets” forum, this well of souls, where any parent who feels the need to can get something off their chest without fear of judgment (you know how we feel about that) or embarrassment or the NSA.
Now you can bury your parenting secrets with me, guilt-free!
After I ran last week’s post with a list of my secrets, a fair amount of you whispered yours to me via the comments and on my Facebook page. It got me thinking that some of you could use a place to vent because, unlike me, you don’t lay out your gripes and your shortcomings on the public interwebs for the world to see. But maybe you want to?
Starting today, you can. Right here on my blog! Hop over to the new “Buried Secrets” page (in the menu above or via the link below) and unburden yourself. I don’t even care who you are!
Seriously, I’m not even slightly interested in your identity, so call yourself whatever name you want and bitch or confess or rant or rave about your obnoxious kids or the self-righteous parent next door or your obnoxious kids or your obnoxious kids. I won’t judge. I think your kids are obnoxious too!
So give it a shot. Sometimes letting it out is the first step towards letting it go. And now you have the Frozen soundtrack in your head! Sorry. Or maybe you’re happy about that and are ashamed to admit it? Be ashamed no more. Get your skeletons out of the closet and put them in a coffin.
