This salesman came to my door a few days ago and said, "Hello, Mom! I can tell that you're the MOM in the house!"
Wow. That was really bizarre.
I hate that I am that person, with the kid and the husband, blah blah blah, and people assume that I'm ... THAT PERSON. Like I'm just like every other "stay at home mom"????? So so so weird. I cannot, in a million years, even if I have twelve kids and *home school them all, ever relate to that phrase, "stay at home mom". I think I am a single lesbian in a married "stay at home mom" person's body. Is that possible?
* I know people who home school their kids because they are religious fanatics, and are afraid of what kids might learn at school. The only logical reason I can think of to ever home school a child is if I were convinced that there was some sort of contagious disease on the loose in our schools, something worse than pink eye. Like, I don't know, something that made you a zombie-like creature thirsting for human flesh. Then, I might home-school. Or just send Zelma to school with some anti-bacterial lotion. I don't know.
