What Not to Say to the Working Mom from a SAHM Standpoint

Last week I did a post called “5 things you should never say to a SAHM”. As a Stay-at-home-mom that was a pretty easy post for me to write. One that didn’t require too much thought because I hear those unsolicited opinions pretty often. After that post, I started thinking back 4 years ago to when I was a working mom and the things people said to me then.

Even though I loved my job and I loved working, the thought of staying home with my son was much more appealing (Duh!). I knew there would be challenges and hiccups while we were transitioning but for the most part, I thought it would be a walk in the park. And it was……. Jurassic Park. (Just kidding!) Being at home definitely isn’t as easy as it looks or sounds. You don’t just get to sit around all day watching soap operas (or trashy reality television in my case).
