The truth is, people, the things moms say aren’t actually what we really mean. Unfortunately, if we were honest, we’d probably lose all of our family and friends!
Here are just some of the things we’re thinking when we say…
What Moms Say: I love staying at home so much. I feel so blessed that I get to spend this quality time with my kids all day, every day.
What Moms REALLY Think: I literally count down the minutes until bedtime.
What Moms Say: Every year, I fall more in love with my husband. Watching him as a father is incredible, and it really makes us more connected.
What Moms REALLY Think: Nothing irritates me more than watching my husband parent.
What Moms Say: At bedtime, I’m sad to see my kids go. I miss them all night long, and I can’t wait to see their little faces in the morning.
What Moms REALLY Think: The hours between the kids’ bedtime and when they wake up in the morning are literally the only thing that keep me sane.
What Moms Say: I feel so lucky that I get to have family dinners every night. It’s the one time in the day when we’re really able to slow down and connect with each other.
What Moms REALLY Think: Dinnertime is ALWAYS a disaster…
What Moms Say: The kids are amazing. They blow my mind every day! I don’t remember being this good at things when I was their age. The commitment they have to their sports and school is admirable.
What Moms REALLY Think: Kids these days are over-programmed and spoiled.
What Moms Say: I really value the time I spend dropping off and picking up my kids. It’s special because we’re all in the car together and we get to enjoy some great conversations with one another.
What Moms REALLY Think: The fighting, screaming and crying that happens makes me want to drive off the road.
What Moms Say: Oh, thank you so much for inviting us over for a playdate. I can’t wait to come to your house and spend time with you and all the other kids.
What Moms REALLY Think: I need an excuse, STAT.
