Clarification re: the giveaway

Hi crew,

Just so we're all on the same page, the "confession" part of the giveaway is meant to be fun! I'm not asking for deep dark secrets. Goofy is just fine! Did you let your little munchkin eat chocolate for dinner? Did you go a whole day without realizing his shirt was inside out? Did you text or check e-mail during your daughter's piano recital? I'll even take admissions of re-gifting ;-)

This is, as the title says, a celebration of imperfect parenting. (After all, perfect parents are boring, aren't they? What goofy stories are their kids going to tell about them at family reunions in thirty years? Yep. I thought so.) Let's embrace the fact that we're providing our children with fodder for cocktail party stories (or, uh, therapy) down the road.

  1. Because I support your cause, I am joining your giveaway.

    *shuts eyes and crossing toes and fingers* I hope I win!!


  2. Today I trapped my cat underneath a laundry basket and put treats on the floor several feet away, because I thought it was fun to watch him move his portable prison around like a turtle shell in his quest for delicious kitty treats.

    Also, one time I accidentally locked him in the kitchen closet for like an hour.
