My mom said I'm lazy because I'm a sahm

My niece got her first job recently, that was the topic at a family get together. Everyone was proud of her then somehow the talk shifted towards us, my moms kids, and how we're all hard workers. Well my mom singled me out saying that yes, all her kids are hard workers except me. I'm the lazy one because I don't work. I'm a sahm. Mind you, of my three 3 sisters, I'm the only who is raising my kids WITHOUT any of her help. My mom was quick to offer them babysitting, even had 3 of my nieces living with her for some time so my sisters could work. By the time I had my kids, my mom was tired of watching kids. Completely understandable but I find it very crappy of her to describe me as the lazy one. I brushed it off but deep inside, I kind of resent her for it. Especially since she, at one point was a sahm herself.

Would you have felt hurt as well? I hope not being overly sensitive.

I'd have popped off something smart mouthed and then left.

Of course you're not being over - sensitive. Does she talk negatively about others as well? Is she just a negative person?

Considering she was a sahm herself, she was probably just teasing. I think you are being over sensitive.

No and that's why it caught me off guard. She's even complimented me before on my parenting style, how I'm so hands on and whatnot.

Yes I'd be pissed. This whole topic gets me in heads will roll mood though so I'm refraining. My SIL works and I don't. At first everyone thought it was SO GREAT that she was "finally doing something"...but that was until she started throwing her kids at whoever would take them, mostly my MIL and FIL, because she refuses to get permanent child care. And that was before she started bringing home fast food every night and her house is now disgusting. I'm not saying all working moms are like her but I can tell you one thing (and the family now agrees): She's way more lazy as a WM than I am as a SAHM any day.

She wasn't teasing, I could definitely tell when she's teasing and when she's serious.

Quoting AlwaysKISA: Conquering she was a sahm herself, she was probably just teasing. I think you are being over sensitive.
