The Things Moms Lie About

The other day I was at an extracurricular activity that my son participates in. There was a lady next to me whose son was also participating, so I thought I'd strike up a conversation. It was the usual mom talk, I asked how old her kids were, how long her son had been in this activity, and then asked what she did. Her response made me laugh (to myself of course) because I know for sure that this is something that a lot of stay at home moms lie about. I'm not saying that this doesn't take place; I'm just saying that it probably doesn't happen as much as we would like it to.

She said, "I stay at home with my kids."
"Very cool" I replied "does your son go to preschool?"
"Oh no!" she said dismissively "that's why I stay home, so that I can teach him all of those things myself!" too lady, me too.


  1. Cracking me up! Love it!

  2. I'm not a mom but I can sure appreciate this!!! I'm not big on the tv scene but I know myself well enough to know when kids come around I may feel a little differently!!!!

  3. Truth!! And let me just add he's soo cute relaxed with his legs and arms crossed, I mean come on!! Our damn tv is on all day. I love it, Maddox love it, why not right. Even if we aren't watching it I have to have background noise. I have music on a lot too when I'm cleaning and doing stuff in the kitchen but tv is on probably 13 hrs/day. YIKES, mother of the year, woot woot!!

  5. @Lindsay Henderson You crack me up lady! I love your honesty!
