The number of mothers working from home has increased dramatically compared to previous decades. In a survey where mothers working from home were asked what comments that others make about them that they most dislike, they had an infinite number of things to say, but here are 10 things that extremely irritate them after hearing them. Read on to find out.
10 Things Not To Say To Work-At-Home Moms
1. “How Nice It Must Be To Get To Stay At Home With Your Children”
Luxury? Really? Oh please, luxury only lasts for five minutes when we’re in the shower. This is the only time we’re completely undisturbed, and we’re like free birds.
2. “Don’t You Just Miss That Human Interaction?”
Um, my kids are people, too. Oh, you mean adults? Well, it feels really great to spend all my moments with these kids. One day they’ll blink and they’ll be both grown up and gone. Enjoy every moment, even if it’s tiring and exhausting.
Please don’t ask that, because they will probably mock you indirectly. They want human interactions, duh. Do you understand? Don’t be so silly to ask such a question.
3. “You Have Time To Watch Television All Day”
Oh yes, we just watch TV all day long and there is no other work for us! Disney Jr., Baby First TV, and Sprout Channel. Would you like to join us?
4. “You Must Be Full Of Work.”
No, not at all. We have plenty of time to relax and watch our kids play while we do our nails. Would you like to try typing with one hand and feeding the baby with the other?
Damn it, don’t you know we’re full of work all day long? That’s such a stupid thing to say.
5. “Why Did You Give Up Your Job? It Must Be A Mental & Social Suicide!”
That’s self-explanatory, and you’re smart enough to know what mothers’ responses to that must have been.
6. “Well, It Should Be Pretty Easy Because You Stay At Home Anyway!”
Absolutely, it’s pretty fucking simple! Yeah, it’s not.
7. “SAHM & Photographers Are Not Real Jobs”
Being a “Stay At Home Mom” (SAHM) & being a business owner or a photographer of any kind are not real jobs? Wow, really? Let’s talk about it and present some facts for the exact definition of “work at home mom”.
8. “Oh, So Sad… Why Don’t You Find Somewhere For Working Then? If You’re Gonna Work, You Should Not Let The Children See That”
Yes, you’re absolutely right! We should live this private hard-working life & even make it look like it’s so easy for my kids. Uh, no! That doesn’t teach them any helpful lessons about life!
9. “Aren’t You Tired To Be Around Your Kids All Day?”
Sometimes, yeah, I am. Nevertheless, this is a life that I have chosen and I would not prefer any other way! Please, don’t say that, or we’ll start screaming internally.
10. “You Look So Exhausted!”
Really? Really? Okay, well then, why don’t you come over this weekend & you’re welcome to watch all my kids while I get my mani, pedi, massage, and facials. What do you say? No? Then for God’s sake, don’t ever say that again.
