What not to say to a working mom...

"Do you think your kids will recognize you when you get home?"

I literally spent 24 hours at the church. From 6pm Sat. until 6pm Sun.

A youth lock-in (sleeping at the church with the youth, well not so much sleeping), worship services, funeral prep, then funeral).

Thanks members of my congregation for making me feel worse than I already do. To add to my exhaustion and hunger let's pile on guilt shall we?

I'm sorry someone said that to you. That stinks.

I hate your job you know. :~) Altho, I'm very proud of you and happy for you (you know that too, don't you?) I dont' really hate your job, I just hate that they expect SO MUCH from you, time wise, among one of the things. So, yeah, not a great thing to say to you.

PS that sounds harsh of me. I DO NOT hate your job. LOL You are a great mom.

That's pretty crappy to say to any parent.

Yuck. The appropriate response was for them to tell you how much they appreciate your sacrifices for the sake of you're community. You are amazing!
