I wish I could say I was surprised at the stupid things people say to parents,
but I'm not. Since having my first child almost 9 years ago, I've
learned that parenting is something that everyone, even people who don't
have kids, have an opinion about.
Whatever happened to "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all"?
The comments I thought were bad when I had one kid are about 400
times worse now that I have four kids. But today, instead of smiling and
laughing like I usually do since I usually have my kids with me when I
hear this crap, I'm going to share the craziest things people have said
to me and what I'd love to tell them. Or where to shove it.
You do know where babies come from, right? You
know, it's funny you mention that because I was just asking myself the
other day "Where do babies come from?" and then my vagina piped up and
reminded me of the combined 30 hours of labor and all those stitches.
Wow, you really have your hands full! Are you
kidding? This is a spa vacation. See, I actually have about 20 more
children at home but I keep them all locked in a closet and rotate out
the good ones.
You must have a lot of sex. Well, don't tell
anyone, but I actually bought these kids on the black market. But yes, I
have sex. A lot. Probably a lot more than you do, especially if you say
stupid crap like that all the time.
You are my hero. Oh gosh, thank you. My vagina is blushing.
I'm so glad I stopped at two kids. If you think
it's okay to say something like that in public to a mom, in front of her
children, I'm really glad you stopped too.
You must like torture. Wait a second. This is so bizarre. Have you been looking into my bedroom?
Moms of 3 or more kids, what comments drive you crazy?
I have 6 brothers and sisters. I always get "are you Catholic" ? drives me crazy. and, how about them Duggers? Who are they to judge? I say, more power to her. Are they living off the government? NO! Do they have any debt? NO!
How can people judge those that want a bunch of chillins' and are able to fully care for them?
I have had 4 children (one in heaven) and I want at least one more!
I am 22, going on 23. The comments that make me roll my eyes most are the "Aren't you done yet", "You are awfully young to have so many kids", and "Another one? Are you trying for a football team?". I roll my eyes and laugh it off.
