Here are some of the dirty little secrets the authors uncovered:
(includes book page number)

-- I lie about my babysitting hours to my friends. 'Oh I have her 8 hours when in reality it's 20.' (page 43)

-- Sometimes I think my nanny does a better job than I do. (page 32)

-- My biggest fear as a mother is being judged by other moms. (page 17)

-- I have sex with myself more than with my husband (page 108)

-- I do my son's homework just so we can get through it faster. I grab his pencil and he just looks at me like I've lost my mind. (page 74)
