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.
That's why I chose to stay at home so that I have "nothing" to worry about. I dream of jeannie!
Does that mean you turn overprotective on weekends? There is something called "personal preferences"; you may wanna look up the term.
Like how I depend on my mom (who was also a stay-at-home mom) today for emotional support? Well, I'd love it!
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.
Define "work" for me please!
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 have a wicked sense of humor!
Are you jealous or are you plain jealous?
I never knew I was getting all this education just to end up in office!
Just like how you would not know how difficult it is to be running after kid(s) 24x7.
Since when has taking care of your home and kids termed as "wasting time"?
If life revolves around office/business, then yes, I have hapilly given up on "life".
Because basically, I have nothing else to do except to look after others' kids after having put mine to sleep.
