10 Things NEVER To Say To...A STAY-AT-HOME MOM

Again, I got this from the March 2011 Issue of Redbook

10 Things NEVER To Say To...A STAY-AT-HOME MOM

1. When the kids are older, do you think you'll get a real job?

2. How June Cleaver of you!

3. Oh, so you don't work?

4. Since you have extra time on your hands, could you whip up a few dozen brownies for the bake sale tomorrow?

5. All day with your kids? I can't even imagine.

6. I'm jealous. I wish my husband were rich so I wouldn't have to work either.

7. What do you do all day, anyways?

8. I'm sure you're not the only one who's ever wasted money on a college degree.

9. That explains why you son is so clingy!

10. Weird. I assumed you house would be superclean.

Like I said, yes, I am a working mom but I would be so upset if someone said any of these things to me. Both working moms and stay at home moms busts their booties...MOMS ROCK!

I tried so hard to be a SAHM but I just couldn't do it. I'm definitely a working mom through and through (especially now that Ellie is 10 and in school all day). I truly wish I could have stayed at home. Being a mom (no matter what) is hard work!!!

Being a SAHM...really is challenging. You would think that I have all the time in the world...but kids are freaking exhausting. Sometimes I most definitely wish I was working...outside of the home:)

I love this!! I feel the same way - it's hard no matter what! I stay home, my BFF works - we both struggle - just with different things sometimes!

Moms do rock!! :)

LOVING your blog!!!
