[Editor's Note: Do you know all of those posts that fall into the "Don't say this to x-type of people" category? What not to say to breastfeeding moms. What not to say to adoptive moms. What not to say to expectant moms. What not to say to new moms, old moms, tween moms, empty nester moms. Well, Lyz Lenz has taken care of the whole problem. She has made a list of things never to say to any mom. Ever. The end. Don't drink anything while reading it though; you may laugh so hard that you'll choke. -Jenna]
5 Things You Should Never Ever Say to Anyone Who Has a Child or Is With Child or Is Casually Thinking About Babies:
Try “hello” or mumble “your majesty” while you avert your eyes. This woman is caring for a CHILD, which according to all the songs, IS THE FUTURE! Do not engage. Smile politely and hurry by. You should be so lucky to have been in her presence.
2. “Oh, you look good!”
What, are you insinuating that she looked bad? Jerk. If you were carrying all 7 pounds of life like this god-like creator in her yoga pants buying ice cream at 10:30pm is, you’d know that pregnant women always look good all the time. Why? BECAUSE THEY CREATED LIFE! What did you create? Oh, a spreadsheet? Does it poop every 2 hours? No? Then, I guess it’s not so special.
