Dear Random Lady I Met at a Party,
Thank you for taking the time to assess my ability to manage my work life and parenthood. I appreciate your unsolicited opinion on whether I am able to sufficiently care for my kids while working, in your assessment, 17 hour days. It was incredible to hear your views on the time I spend telecommuting as you seem to be an expert in the field. I particularly enjoyed your statement that I wasn’t really there for my kids if I was working remotely.
Our 90 second conversation where you initially confused me with someone else was clearly sufficient time for you to accurately determine the health of my relationship with my kids and my husband. It was also plenty of time for you to fully comprehend both my professional and parenting styles.
Since you have such a prescient viewpoint of how I live my life, you may enjoy reading my blogs to see if your evaluations are correct. Might I suggest What Do You Do or you may see something more in tune with your own proclivities for mothering in I am, I am, I am Supermom. I personally would like to recommend Profoundly Profane. Then you’ll learn the incredible restraint and composure I enacted at said party when I didn’t tell you to mind your own f$&!ing business.
The Rock and Roll Mom
