Dirty Little Secrets

Dirty Little Secrets from Otherwise Perfect Moms by Trisha Ashworth and Amy Nobile

Trisha Ashworth and Amy Nobile conducted interviews with hundreds of mothers while researching their best-selling book I Was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids. It didn’t take long before these moms began to reveal their Dirty Little Secrets—surprising, thought-provoking, guilty confessions they hadn’t told anyone else.

Cringe-worthy moments (“I bit my daughter’s finger trying to steal a bite of her cookie.”) meet real insights (“I love my kids but I didn’t always. It took time to fall in love with them.”). These are the private thoughts that every mom has—and every mom can relate to.
