"sahm's are lazy and sit around doing nothing all day"...*not your typical sahm post*
My stepdad came over last night to drop off some extra mulch he had. As he was leaving I thanked him and told him I would see him tomorrow. He was in the street and I was in my garage so we kind of had to yell to hear eachother. As he's leaving he yells.."Go take "R" (ds) for a walk...you sit at home and do nothing all day..go take the kid for a walk." I was caught completely off guard so I just kind of smiled and starting walking into the house. He then said (yelled) "You can't tell me you've been busy in that house ALL day..get off your ass and do something with "R". Ummmm wtf?!?! Seriously?!
I don't even know where to start with how that made me feel. For one I was pissed because he yelled that from the middle of the street and most of the neighbors were outside doing yard work so I know they all heard him. That made me really mad and embarrassed.
But it also made me mad because sitting on my ass all day is the last thing I do. I ran errands for three hours in the morning then took the dog to her vet appt. Came home and cleaned for an hour..worked with ds for an hour on his work books then cleaned more after that. After that ds and I went to the park for awhile, came home and I started doing yard work outside while ds collected rocks from the yard (for some reason that's like his favorite thing to do lol) But seriously....where does he get off saying something like that to me...and to yell it in front of all the neighbors..? Not cool.
And then I'm thinking wow...he really must not think very much of me if he thinks I do nothing all day and just sit on my butt watching tv. That really upset me because I love that man like he is my father and I thought he felt the same. But to say something like that..idk, it just really changed my feelings about him. Maybe I'm just being sensitive because I know the stigma people around here have about sahm's...but for HIM to think so little of me. Idk but it really got to me. I cried for like 45 minutes uncontrollably after he left. I'm not usually the sensitive, crying type so it really surprised me that I had such a reaction.
Now I don't know what to do. Do I say something to him about how he made me feel? Do I say something to my mom about it? Do I just let it go? I don't know what I am going to do but I do know that when he said that me...it really broke my heart.
*Sorry so long, guess I had more to say about it then I realized.*
