Does anyone else get the "do you like being a mom" question? Its normally people I haven't seen since I had a kid but it's just weird. I just want to be like no its horrible you want him? Just to see there reaction.

    Ya I used go get that question and just hated it. Its a loaded question and I feel like there is no right answer. Most likely tho they are probably just concerned about you. Try not to get too annoyed and just be happy you have people around that care. ❤

    Yeah I get it - people are well meaning and trying to find something to say so it’s hard to fault them. But it’s typically very gender specific (like does your partner/husband get the same response?..) and also kind of ignoring you as a person (as you are still, despite the fact that you have a kid). But, like I said - they mean well! 😬 small talk can be cringey....

    I get this too.. typically from people who don’t have kids. I say, “honestly, motherhood is not that great, do you want her?” I just have no filter anymore after all the ridiculous things people said when I was pregnant.🙃

    I HATED that question. I never knew what to say and it made me feel like being a parent was all I was supposed to have in life. The only time it’s okay to ask that question is if you are thinking of starting a family and genuinely want to know or if you think someone is struggling and are offering a chance to vent.

    Lol my baby is 3mos old and I still get that question! But today I got thrown off and someone asked me “how’s mommy doing?” And I replied “it’s great” 😂

    Sleep deprived overworked parents moms specifically... I think we lose our “give a da🙊m” filter when we have 20 people(most of which we don’t know) in the room as we push out a kid! I think we love being moms, we just all need paid, breaks, vacations.... and for people that are insincere to stay away from us. I’ve stopped lying to new moms about to give birth too!
