Wait, What Did You Just Say to Me?

I love being a stay at home mom but I don't like to stay at home. I like to be out and about with my kids having fun even when they were little and I got weird/rude comments. And over the years I've had my fair share of strange comments from strangers. OK fine some of them were so outright rude that I'm still proud of my self for not physically harming them. And while I did write a post about the 10 things you should never say to a mom of twins, I know all you singleton parents out there get weird advice/comments too. And the really offensive ones make you stop and think what the crap did you just say to me?

So here are some of my favorite what the crap did you just say moments.

I went to Buffalo Wild Wings to pick up some takeout for Brett and I. You pay and wait for your food at the bar there. While I was waiting this man started hitting on me. I'm not going to lie I was a little flattered since I had 1 year old twins and a 3 year old at the time and I was feeling less than va va va voom at the time. When I told him I was married with three kids he asked their ages. I told him and he said "Wow I'm glad I never had sex with you!"

Wait, what the crap did you just say to me


I was in WalMart when my twins were about three months old and Isabella had just turned two. I was in line to pay when a woman comes up to me and said "you know you should really worry more about your carbon footprint than your selfish need to have children."

What the crap did you just say?



I don't remember where I was but a woman once said to me "I bet if you knew you were going to have twins you would have watched a movie that night instead."

What the crap did you just say?


Now this story isn't mine so I will withhold the name to protect the person I'm too lazy to call and ask if I can share this story on my blog.
A mom of triplets was out to dinner and a very drunk woman came up to her and said "never f*@k again. No I mean it, never ever f*@k again." And then she said it about 3 more times to really drive the point home.

What the crap did you just say?


OK now it's your turn, please share me your favorite what the crap did you just say moments.

  1. The what the crap did you say moment usually is, "So, you don't want kids?!" Ummm.... excuse me?! Some people don't have a clue.

    I have a twin sister and a sister 21 months older than us. People used to ask, "Are you three twins?" I would just stop and think...

    1. I got asked if mine were triplets when my twins were babies. Um no one can walk and talk and the other two are infants. So dumb.

      And I agree, some people just don't have a clue.

  2. I wrote a whole blog about this but can't seem to find it - anyway, my favorite (and it happens all the time): "Whoa, are they twins?" "yes, yes, they are." (I'm not a miracle woman). It is almost always followed with "are they identical?" Ummmmm, one boy, one girl, one penis, one vagina. Seriously? And then I was in a store once, got the twin question and then the lady turned to another woman and said "So many twins running around these days --- all of those fertility drugs. Why don't people just do it the normal way?" I CAN HEAR YOU, LADY.

    1. Are your boy/girl twins identical? That question drives me nuts-how stupid are you? And every mom of boy/girl twins I know gets that question all the time. And I love it when people talk about you as if your hearing doesn't work. I usually give them the death stare so they know that I can hear them.

  3. having my son at 18 it's no surprise I've had my fair share of comments. I've had women multiple times lean over and whisper that they'll pray for me. Once I was in old navy for that $1 flip flop sale with my son and he was whining in the line bc i wouldn't buy some random toy he found (mind you he's 4 at the time a knew better than to throw crazy fits). I told him to behave and that to act like a big boy not a baby that he doesn't need to roll around the floor and such to get something. The lady behind me curses me out calling me all kinds of names for "calling him a baby" and said this is why some people shouldn't have kids that it was natural for him to roll around the floor to kick and scream for the toy. with the chaos of the sale and my son's tantrum, i'm proud that i JUST gave her a look and continued to pay for my $1 flip flips

    1. I'm proud of you too. I'm pretty sure I would have told her off. I can't stand it when I'm standing firm and not giving in to my kids' tantrums and someone wants to tell me about my "bad parenting." Hello! Read a parenting book/article-I have everyone on my side when it comes to not giving in to tantrums.
