Lazy like me

So yesterday me and the kids went to the library, on our way out we ran into a very uh, lovely, woman. I was walking out with max in his carrier and Dexter holding my hand while I carried the 900 Thomas Train books that he picked out. She looks at me and says "Oh you are being LAZY like me today!" I was for maybe the first time in my life completely speechless. Well I had words in my head but none of them were nice. LAZY? Do you see these two kids hanging off me?? Do you see this giant bag full of books? How do I look lazy right now? I guess she had decided that she had not offended me enough because she kept talking, telling me how she had not even finished her coffee and it took her two tries to light her cigarette and she had quit her job so she could just stay home and do what she wanted. The next words out of my mouth will prove how southern I have gotten living down here. I just looked at her and simply said "Well bless your heart honey we are nothing alike." (If you are not familiar with the phrase "bless your heart" it is not as sweet as it sounds in fact it is a bit of an insult, or rather it means an insult is coming.) Yesterday I got woken up at 6:15 am, that is earlier than my husband wakes up. Max decided he was done sleeping then. I finally got him back down at 7:20am Dexter woke up at 7:35 telling me "Mommy my butt hurts" He wanted a new diaper, got him changed rocked him back to sleep, and finally put him down at 8ish then Max woke up at 8:20. He was up for good, Dexter woke up for good at 9am, I gave Max a bath I took a shower got ready. I mean I actually blow dried my hair! Put make up on, feed both boys (Max is eating solids now too) Cleaned both of them up, got them ready and went to the library. Yes it was about 12 by the time we went but I still do not see how that makes me lazy! Sometimes I just can not believe some people and the things that come out of their mouths! Oh well it gave me a good laugh. Also just so you know this lady was wearing her pajamas I am pretty sure.

  2. That is the strangest story! I can't believe that woman was so ignorant. Being a Mom is the hardest job in the world.

    1. Its sad but where I live I run into people like this all the time. If you ever see the show about hunny boo boo, that is basically my town mixed with lots of navy families! It is the strangest place on earth.

  5. I understand what you mean about being speechless. I am constantly telling people they do not understand the pace mothers go until they are one themselves. One of my colleges criticized my parenting skills and it did leave me speechless. Lets just say I am still biting my lips so I do sympathize. Do not let it get to you.
    I am following from the hop and would love if you can follow back.
