How would you respond?

I have a friend (she had no kids) that I've known since highschool who likes to make kind of snarky comments about me not having a life other then my kids. I'll admit it's true, but it doesn't really bother me. Anyway I have a facebook and I posted on it how excited I am to get my new cloth diapers I ordered! She left me a comment saying "wowwww don't sound too much like a mom...." I'm not sure how to respond. I don't want to cause a fight but I would like to say something back without sounding rude. Honestly, I think it's just hard for her because I'm such a different person now that I have children and I think it's hard for her to relate to me now. She also moved across country about a year ago and we haven't seen each other since then, so we mostly communicate online which also makes thinks a little strained.

What would you say?

  • I would say..."That's because I am a mom and super proud of it!" "Maybe one day you'll understand."

  • I would say to her that the two of you have nothing in common anymore.
    When and if she ever becomes a mom she will see where you are coming from.
    Try not to lose so much of yourself because you are a mom though..it is always good and
    healthy to take some me time...

  • I know how you feel I got prego in high school and I have a friend who has no children and she is in collage now and she always seems to have smart a** remarks to make to me about how "I decided to have a family" and "she decided to further her education" so while "she is making the big bucks im at a local bar making barley nothing with two children." One day I got so mad I told her "Just because I decided to have my familly out of high school and go to work instead of collage that doesnt mean U are any better than ME and if you cont. to insult me I will have no choice to STOP talking to you until you can grow up." She hasnt said one negative thing to me since!
    Point of story just tell her how you feel!

  • I like the "Well I AM a mom so how else would I sound?" suggestions. I know you don't want to be rude but I would post something like "And what does B***h sound like?" But that's just me.
