The Oprah show is creating a judgment-free zone where moms can speak honestly about the reality of motherhood. If you're a mom, grab your camcorder and start videotaping your "mom moments." Send us your most candid thoughts and confessions!
What do you wish you knew before having children? What do you wish other mothers were talking about openly? What are some of the funniest things you've done as a mom in a crisis? What's your great parenting trick you were always too timid to share? What's the worst thing you feel that you've done as a mom? Are moms are too judgmental of other moms? How did having children change your sex life? Your marriage? You?
