10 Things Never to Say…

My friend Amy handed me a cut-out from Redbook magazine Sunday.  A blogger was asked to come up with 10 things never to say to a stay-at-home-mom.  I’m going to re-title this, because I loathe the term “stay-at-home-mom” – but everything else gets credited to Candy Kirby of thelaughingstork.com:

Ten Things Never to Say to a Homemaker:

  1. When the kids are older, do you think you’ll get a real job?
  2. How June Cleaver of you!
  3. Oh, so you don’t work?
  4. Since you have extra time on your hands, could you whip up a few dozen brownies for the bake sale tomorrow?
  5. All day with your kids?  I can’t even imagine.
  6. I’m jealous.  I wish my husband were rich so I wouldn’t have to work either.
  7. What do you do all day, anyway?
  8. I’m sure you’re not the only one who’s ever wasted money on a college degree.
  9. That explains why your son is so clingy!
  10. Weird.  I assumed your house would be super clean.

She posted the ones that Redbook rejected as well:

REJECT #1: If I had to stay at home all day, I’d probably pack on a few extra pounds, too.

REJECT #2:  I would go nuts without intellectual stimulation – but it’s great you don’t need it!

REJECT #3:  You must be well-versed in all of the soap operas, huh?

REJECT #4:  Good for you!  Nothing wrong with being just a stay-at-home mom.

Can you come up with any fun “Never to say to a homemaker?”
