Well, it happened today. The straw that broke the camels back. I ran into an acquaintance at the grocery store and we did the normal “what are you up to?” conversation. As soon as I said I was a stay-at-home mom, her eyes got wide and she asked that dreaded question: “What do you DO all day?”
Let me preface this by saying the numerous people that have asked me this very rude question do not have children of their own. A few have asked because they are genuinely interested in what being a SAHM entails. But the majority have asked with a judgmental/condescending tone. To you I say: it is none of your damn business.
If I wanted to get in a pissing contest I’d lay out my schedule for you. However, I don’t want or need to. I don’t need to validate MY choices for MY family.
But if it makes you feel better: I superglue my kid to the floor so I can watch soap operas, eat ice cream, and paint my toenails. Sure.
