My mom confession doesn't tarnish my halo

There is some unwritten rule that states all moms are perfect. I have never seen such a written document; I was never handed the rule book, but I am aware of the concept. As a mom, we have this unparalleled belief that we should be perfect. From the carefully coiffed child to the impeccable house, a mom's life should be the epitome of success. Unfortunately, my mom gold star is a little tarnished and my mom halo is a little bent. 

Don't get me wrong. I had aspirations, dreams, goals, etc. When my bundle of joy was put into my arms, I saw the world through rosé colored glasses. He would never cry, he would be a genius, and he would be a star athlete. Wow was I delusional. I love my children with all my heart and they are my world. I've just become more realistic. 

I confess. I've done a few things that maybe I'm not proud admitting. I've pretended to be asleep when I heard the whining over a toy. I've even faked the stomach flu so that I could have a few moments of quiet in the bathroom. Do these confession make me a bad mom?  No way. 

It is time to unburden these unrealistic expectations. What is your mom confession?  

Be sure to watch the new series debuting this fall on CBS, Mom. It might make your mom confession a little less dirty. 

Disclosure: I was invited to an event to learn about the new CBS show, Mom. I was not compensated for this post.
