because mom said so

My fascination with mom blogs has always been the fact that so many of these women are willing to admit that -- sometimes -- they are just not that good at their job.

The creators of True Mom Confessions, one of whom -- Rebecca Wolfe at Girl's Gone Child -- is a mom blogger herself, takes that to a whole new level. Just like Post Secret, which Rachel Sklar at Eat the Press compares the new site to, it's funny, frightening and sad all at that same time. And like Post Secret, I like the idea of it more than I imagine I will like reading it on a regular basis. I like the honesty, but I am also a sucker for the great writing of folks like Heather Armstrong or Mrs. Kennedy.

But it's not for me. It's for the moms.
