8 Things Never to Say to a Mom of an Only Child

8 Things Never to Say to a Mom of an Only Child

Commented Mar 1, 2013 at 10:30:09 in Parents

“THANK YOU!!!! I am daily shocked by the things people feel comfortable saying to my face about having more kids. One of my friends came up with the best answer, "Not today!"
I will add though that, having been a nanny, two is DEFINITELY harder than one. A friend of mine, who is the most amazing mom I know, recently said that two makes one look like a goldfish.”

“We spent two years doing exhaustive research on her for our next book. We think she is an amazing woman who should be allowed to control her own life and her own destiny. I'm sorry if our comments rubbed you the wrong way. We just meant that if her father is putting her up for these jobs then she should be allowed run her own life.”

“Her new husband shares the work with her dad now. Everyone seemed happy with it when it was announced.
Surely she has a manager (not that loon job) that takes care of the 'job' end of her life and surely they discuss what she wants to do. I certainly hope so.

She has come so far from shaving her head and being out at all hours with people like Paris Hilton. I would like to see people give her credit for part of what she is doing. I seriously do not believe that Simon Cowell would hire her if he had not "vetted" her for the her ability to be on the show and responsible for the winners and losers.

I know I was harsh in my answer but I feel strongly about dragging someone's name through the mud and then giving an opinion about her not being able to do something that could be a big boost for her self-esteem and her work.

"How can she be deemed fit to judge when the judge can't seem to deem her fit?"

That is pretty judgmental when we have no idea how she feels about what the judge is doing to help her get on her feet emotionally. Thanks for your resonable reply.”

“Good point, I totally agree! (I just tried to streamline my post for efficiency's sake.) My wonderful brother and sister-in-law are one such couple. My godparents are another. The important thing in life is to follow your bliss, be it with a goldfish or six kids.”

“Thank you SO much for your kind words. Due to some sort of interweb snafu I couldn't reply to comments until today, but I wanted you to know I appreciated that you took the time to tell me this resonated with you. Especially as a single parent. Hats off to you. Whole 'nother category of sainthood.”

“Thank YOU! For many years Emma was married and I was single. Then I was pregnant and she was still trying. It can be challenging to maintain a friendship across those 'jealously' divides. Brava to you for doing it!”
