13 Things A Stay-At-Home Mom Is Sick Of Hearing

They say life returns to normal a few months post delivery, but they forget "normal" is history once you become a mom. I hear ya, mums! Completely relatable by you but hardly understood by others. 

Some moms choose to return to work a few months after delivering a baby but others take a sabbatical or completely forego their career in order to give their full time and energy to their little one. There is no foolproof way of raising a child as each child is different, and so is each mother. Having said that, I have realized that some people - especially who have made the alternate choice - find it amusing to point out certain things or simply pass some irrelevant remarks to the other. For example, here are some things all stay-at-home moms are tired of hearing and we have taken the liberty to share respective smart-ass answers that most of them would want to throw at such remarks.

You must be so carefree with nothing to worry about.

That's why I chose to stay at home so that I have "nothing" to worry about. I dream of jeannie! 

You are over protective.

You are over protective.

Does that mean you turn overprotective on weekends? There is something called "personal preferences"; you may wanna look up the term. 

Your kids will turn out to be too dependent on you.

Like how I depend on my mom (who was also a stay-at-home mom) today for emotional support? Well, I'd love it!

You perhaps have trust issues.

stay at home mom

I wish I was brave enough to trust a stranger to take care of my kids and my diamonds. Both are priceless but unlike diamonds, I can't lock up my kids in a safe.

Why do you look tired? You don't even work!

stay at home mom

Define "work" for me please!

How do you kill time? I would go crazy sitting idle at home

stay at home mom

Well, I am one of those "rare" blessed mums whose kids were trained to behave well and be disciplined inside the womb. All I do is watch them behave.....

You must be having fun all day

You must be having fun all day

You have a wicked sense of humor!

You must be asking your husband for money every time.

Are you jealous or are you plain jealous?

You are simply wasting all your education.

stay at home mom

I never knew I was getting all this education just to end up in office!

You won't know how difficult it is to balance work and home.

stay at home mom

Just like how you would not know how difficult it is to be running after kid(s) 24x7.

You are wasting your time being stuck at home

stay at home mom

Since when has taking care of your home and kids termed as "wasting time"?

I pity you for having given up on life

stay at home mom

If life revolves around office/business, then yes, I have hapilly given up on "life".

Do you mind looking after my kids while I go shopping today?

stay at home mom

Because basically, I have nothing else to do except to look after others' kids after having put mine to sleep. 

Did you find these points relevant?
