Mom-fessions: I'm obssessed with the Arias trial

Why are moms obsessed with the Arias trial?

Why are moms obsessed with the Arias trial?

Every day on Raising America we give you a chance to come clean and confess. Lately we've noticed more parents confessing their obsession with the Jodi Arias trial!

Does this sound like you? You aren't alone!

"I have been watching the Arias trial since day 1. My kids were asking when it was going to be over. When I said 'not too much longer,' my 9-year-old said 'Good! Then you can start doing stuff again!' Yes, I felt some guilt, but I'm still watching Emoji"

"Ok, I wasn't going to post this because of the guilt and embarrassment, but I saw some other mothers doing it, so here I go... My children, too, have been dreading my addiction to the Jodi trial. Then, last Friday night, when coverage wasn't even on, my daughter came into the room, put herself into a headstand, and said "Hey mom, look I'm Jodi Arais!" #overexposure #imscrewed" Genevieve wrote on our Facebook page

She's not the only one! 

"Mommy confession: My 21-month-old just told me when I turned you guys on "No Jo-Nee! No No!" I think he's had enough!" Julie wrote. She even sent us video of her sweet son! 

"My 10-year-old knows about this case and agrees she is guilty on her own mind! Not by any influence. She doesn't know all about the sex, but she did hear some of her testimony and can't wait for the guilty verdict!" Alessandra posted on our Facebook page. 

"My 2 and a half-year-old granddaughter who I babysit every day says, "OH NO...NANA IS WATCHING THE TRIAL AGAIN." So now I set my DVR to record the trial every day and watch it in the evening. Now my husband says, "OH NO...YOU AREN'T GOING TO WATCH THAT TRIAL ALL EVENING ARE YOU?" LOL! I can't win, but I am ADDICTED! hahaha," Jane Ann wrote.
