35: Mom Confession - I don't like my kids all the time
Most people don't want to admit they don't like their kids all the time because they are afraid it will make them look like a bad parent. I'm here to admit it, I don't like my kids all the time and I don't care who knows it. It's completely normal for us to not like our friends, spouses, or family members all the time, so why not our kids? Sometimes they're just unbearable little turds and we don't like them.

30: Period gloves and trampolines
Have you ever heard of period gloves? This idea was created by men to make women's lives easier. It just seems so unnecessary to me. Tell me what you think. Are you scared to jump on the trampoline with your kids because you're afraid you'll pee yourself? Have I got good news for you. Jumping on a trampoline, referred to as rebounding, can actually strengthen your pelvic floor.
