I am a very proud stay at home mom, I love what I do and wouldn't trade it for the world! BUT, there is one particular comment that gets under my skin that I just don't know how to respond to! It's always when people ask if I work. I always say, "Yes, I'm a full time mommy." And the lmost inevitable response is, "So you just stay home?" Gah! I don't want to start a fight or come across as a b*tch, but I also don't want to just say yes! Most recently it was my new OBGYN and then my physical therapist (carpal tunnel). It's never said with derision or meant as a dig, just as a clarification of what I do...or don't do as I'm rarely actually home all day, but it is a bit offensive!
So, how would YOU respond? And does this little comment get under your skin too?
