Hey to all non-parents out there, you should probably know that your new-mom friends are a bit sensitive right now. They’re sleep-deprived. They’re facing new dilemmas and challenges every day, struggling to find answers to tough questions and just praying they raise their child correctly. They’re financially worried about things like, “How will I send this kid to ballet lessons one day, let alone college?” So maybe take it easy on them. Be gentle. They were there for you when you were a wreck after that one breakup and couldn’t be left alone for three hours. And they were there for you when you didn’t get that job you had been counting on and dreaming about. So maybe it’s time to be there in return and know about these ways non-parents can be pretty mean to parents.
Teasing the mom clothes
Even though your mom friend laughs along with you when you make fun of her maternity clothes, it probably hurts a little. She spent a lot of time in the store trying to find something that didn’t look like maternity clothing. So, please, tell her she looks adorable.
