Not much right? You know what I hear on a daily basis? “Oh that’s right you’re a stay at home mom. Of course you have time!” I hear it out right and I hear it as passive aggressive comments.
I have a lot to say on this subject but for now I want to make it clear that this is insulting and rude. No I don’t have time!
