"I'm a stay at home mom"
Wow...I couldn't do that (not as a compliment)
So you can just wear your pj's all day and not leave the house!
I could never do that my kids would drive me crazy
What do you do all day?
So are you going to get a real job when the kids go to school?
I would get too bored doing that
I don't know how you do it...Saturday and Sunday are too much for me!
I wish my husband made enough money so I didn't have to work
Hmmm...That explains why you son is so clingy
My son would miss daycare he loves his teachers and they love him too!
My house would be SO clean if I could stay at home all day and keep up with everything
Please...I eat lunch while standing over the sink (if I remember to eat at all). Bathroom breaks consist of trying to duck into the bathroom without anyone noticing then struggling to lock the door (while on the toilet) when I've been discovered. Cleaning, Sure! I do it all day again and again and again...yet at 5:00pm it looks worse than it did at 8am! Watching TV of course PBS, Nick Jr, and Cartoon Network all my favorites! Just because I am a stay at home mom doesn't mean I stay at home all day - hello! I'd lose my mind too! We are out and about all day! That is of course only on the days I change out of my pajamas!
I can't say if you asked me 6 years ago I would have ever told you I'd be a stay at home mom, but I can't imagine doing anything else at this time of our lives!
