Okay I admit, I love reading some of the blurbs on Babble, they make me smile and nod in agreement occasionally. Especially one like this
10 things Never to say to a mom
I won't reveal them all, just the ones I found pertinent or have an especially entertaining story to add!
1. You look tired!
I only welcome this when I'm not the only one :) As in, we stayed up too late playing games/catching up/etc...
2. Do you work?
Now honestly I don't find this one insulting. I see this as a way to weed out if someone stays at home like me and therefore I have more in common with or more of a chance to have a playdate with. This is the only reason I would ask this question or bear it in return.
3. You look like such a mom!
I've had someone younger say this to me...but as a close friend. A complete stranger has never made this comment.
4. Oh my you have your hands full!
This one I could see why they said it....but still. Yes, I am not unaware that I am pushing a stroller, holding the hand of a toddler AND walking a puppy all at the same time. Thank you.
5. Glad I'm not the only one who wears mom jeans...
although insert has a mom haircut. That in itself has prompted my desire to grow it back out the way I was *last* summer!
Not horrible offenses, but slightly annoying ones :)
