So I was just reading the Single Dad Laughing blog. His post “Things You Should Never Say to Someone Who’s Single” has some pretty funny responses to some of the awkward things that people say to you once they learn you’re single.
There was one of the lines and responses that stood out:
From married moms: oh, it sucks that I am going to be a single mom for the next three days while my husband is out of town.
From single moms: Oh, I’m sorry. You have to go three days without help while somebody goes somewhere to make some money for you. If you need anything, let me know.
Please know…I LOVE LOVE LOVE my married friends with kids! And I KNOW that when they say this, they have NO IDEA how ridiculous they sound! But as a single mom who has the sole responsibility to care for my children’s financial, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being whenever they are with me, I always cringe when I hear a married mom say this.
Listen, I get it. When I was married to my kids’ father, he traveled all the time for work. And from my perspective at the time, it WAS tough. BUT…the fact still remained that there was someone out there bringing home the bacon. My bank account had two adults contributing…not just one. But trust me – I’ve been on both sides of this fence and there’s just no comparison!
At any rate, when I read that from Single Dad Laughing, I couldn’t stop laughing! Which of course meant that if I thought it was funny, you might too!
