I guess I am just feeling a little feisty today, but a couple weeks ago a family friend made a comment to me that I don’t think will ever sit well. It sparked me to write a list of things I do on a daily basis as a working mother, despite having the option to stay at home with my children.
The comment, which got me all riled up was “Do you do more than have babies?”
Uh… first off pal, STOP and think before you speak… especially to a pregnant woman that has the main focus of keeping her breakfast down for the day while changing crappy diapers and trying to force feed my toddler who doesn’t like anything anymore.
I mean seriously!! You must have a really big set to say something like that to anyone, let alone someone you consider to be a family friend.
While we all know this child wasn’t the most planned event in our lives would it be more acceptable if I set up a crappy internet poll asking if we should abort like those other internet jackasses? Or am I just destined to stupid comments because our three children will be close in age?
I mean, we are clearly no Duggar family. No one is going for a dozen kids, and certainly I don’t think I could ever deal with more than the three we will have. But the lack of manners today is completely astonishing.
Yes, I do a lot in my life… I do way more than just get knocked up and gestate babies, and maybe if you weren’t such a narrow minded nitwit you would see that.
Sorry, I am just getting overly sensitive to the stupid comments since we have gotten so many over the past four years since we started our family.
What kind of stupid comments have you got during pregnancy?
