Blast from the recent past about LAZY moms

If you haven't read my rant on why stay at home moms are NOT lazy...myself excluded, you can read it here:


http://suzythehomemaker.blogspot.com/2012/04/stay-at-home-moms-are-lazy.html


I wrote it back in April when there was some controversy over Ann Romney being accused of "never working a day in her life"


I've noticed lately that my blog is being found via google not only by those googling mean names to call people with braces, but also by lots of people googling "lazy stay at home mom".  Why in the world would you google this?  Well if that is what you are googling then I'm sure that you are irate when you start to read and realize that the title of my post was sarcastic.

Probably so irate that you don't read all the way through it.  Or so irate that you don't fully comprehend what you are reading.

Today I got this comment, of course from a "anonymous".  I never sign in either when I am going to attack someone's self worth.

You said that ann romney never got a vacation raising 5 boys. What do you think working moms do when they are on vacation? Hire a nanny and visit their "mcmansion" on bora bora while the kids stay home? No, we do the exact same thing you guys do-spending time with our kids. A vacation is not a vacation from the kids.
Also, having 2 kids of my own and experiece babysitting and working daycare, raising kids is not as hard as you guys claim it is. I would gladlly take watching 20 kids over managing a group of people. Or working as a er nurse. Or how about my friend who works as an air traffic controller. You think it sucks you have a few kids who are always hanging unto you and never leaving you alone-my friend has the safety and lives of thousands of people on her hands 5 days of week.
Stop trivilizing the jobs that take hard work and effort to get into just to justify your self- worth.

what i don't get is that anonymous people take the time to write on peoples blogs who they don't know..that's just lame..and i am sorry you have had crappy days..and i would also never take 20 kids over anything..and who cares what that anonymous person said...being a mom is harder than traffic control, er nurse and anything else and i will argue that til the day i die..so there anonymous person

ps...anonymous is a hard word to spell and now i don't like that word

Wow. Really? Somebody wrote that? "raising kids is not as hard as you guys claim it is." I guess I'm included in "you guys" since I'm a stay at home mom. Here's my thoughts on that. Being a mom can be easy. It's not hard at all to let your kids eat cereal out of the box for every meal, to wear the same clothes day after day, to let them wear diapers until they potty train themselves, to play unsupervised, to let them watch t.v. all day, and to let school teach them all they need to know. Piece of cake. However, being a GOOD mom, is a horrendous amount of work. Raising a child is not easy.
Second, "I would gladlly take watching 20 kids over managing a group of people." I love this because anonymous is implying that children are not people. =) And seriously, 20 kids? Even super nanny couldn't handle that on an every day basis. And her air traffic controller friend? That's great that she chose that profession. Good for her. It must feel good having such an important job. I value the lives of my three kids and find the responsibility of keeping them safe and happy to be important as well. Far more important, in fact, than "working." And seriously, being a good mom is a 24/7 job whether you "work" or not. There are no breaks, and no retiring. There are benefits to being a stay at home mom, and there are benefits to being a working mom. Either way, I think moms just do what is best for their family. And either way, if you are doing it right, being a mom is hard.

Suzy you are the cutest best mom ever. And you are skinny as a twig, and you have the cutest children ever, even if they shake a little (I am assuming he is okay so that joke is funny, if not I am sorry but you know I love cashman) anonymous can just shut up and leave you alone, cuz they are mean and I wish I could punch them in the nose. Love you.

Anyone who anonymously comments is a fraud who's opinion is invalid. If you want to have a valid opinion, start with honesty about who you are.

Lori said...

I agree with everything said. Anonymous is a
chicken _ _ _ t Sounds to me like she was justifying. It's your blog and you can state your opinion on your blog. If anonymous wants to vent she should start her own blog. I love how people search out others just to be mean. Wow that time could be much better spent helping someone. Love you Suz!

What about how 20 kids ARE a group of people?

Jennie said...

That cracks me up! Not because of you, because if it were me and having someone anonymously post on my blog to say mean things, I would be sad, too. Once, I posted about boobs and how I totally view them differently after nursing 3 kids and I had TONS of hits on my blog. But no one commented. I'm guessing it was because they were looking for a different kind of boob story and were sorely disappointed to find an article about their intended purpose. I seriously LOVED that post. So real. So honest. Inspired me to write my own post about moms. Clearly, anonymous lacked the intellectual capacity to fully comprehend what you were saying. I thought your message was pretty clear. If only people realized how foolish they sound sometimes...

Seriously? What a chicken to leave an anonymous comment, obviously she didn't even read your post. You are an amazing person and a great writer. Anonymous is lame...

It is obvious just by the last few posts how many people love you!(Me included) Keep writing what you write! People that don't even know you that make rude comments are dumb.

Oh, come on mom, just say it. Anonymous is a chicken shit. and a scared one at that.

also:

HAHAHAH. Some people are so stupid. hallelujah and amen.

Hunter Ann said...

Suzy. I LOVE YOU. Come visit soon!

Nat said...

Wow. Anonymous is a meanie. I love tons of stuff about you. Your height. Your sense of adventure. Your sense of humor. The way you laughed at my baby throwing up at Roberts then yours did at another store. The band trips. Hanging out in the boys bathrooms without our shirts. The way you smell when you're wearing a gallon of pickle juice...

You're just so fun to be around and are a great friend. If Anonymous knew you in real life, they would be your friend. What's not to like?!

P.S. Amen Alicia.
