10 things people say that make me angry
"What will she be when she grows up?" Um, a grown-up.
"I have a Thermomix, now I can cook cool stuff!" You know you could have done that before, right?
"Why buy a house? It's impossible to be mortgage free, anyway." Hey, defeatists, watch me prove you wrong.
"My husband won't clean/cook/look after the kids." Don't let me near your husband - my disdain will be far too obvious.
"You can only do that because you have no kids/only one child." You live your life, watch me live mine.
"Travelling with kids is horrible!" Poor you, having a family holiday!
"When you move in together/get married/have kids, the romance will go." Thanks for the positivity.
"Don't take this the wrong way, but..." I love a passive aggressive statement that straight away says it's your own fault if you're offended!
"I bought Abbey a new soft toy!" Seriously, we have so many of the things, we have them stashed under the house. We can't fit them all in here. (And Steve and I have not ever bought her one.)
"She's such a tomboy!" I prefer to think of her as a kind, intelligent, funny, beautiful and well-rounded person with lots of interests. But that's okay, you stick a nice, neat little label on her.
