If you don’t have kids or are about to have your first, you may have said these funny comments. Check out these 14 hilarious things people without kids say!
I was that person who never understood people with children. I was clueless about kids and too scared to hold a newborn. I’m even the youngest, for crying out loud. I had many misconceptions about parenting… until I became one.
Funny things people without kids say
Now I’m the one chuckling at some of the same things people without kids say. These are things I’ve said before I had kids, plus a few more I’ve heard now that I’m a mom:
About feeling tired
#1: “I’m so tired. I had to wake up at 5:30 this morning.”
#2: “I don’t have time.”
#3: “I need to call in sick. I only got four hours of sleep last night.”
#4: “10am is too early.”
About raising children
#5: “We’re going to take our baby to music festivals, dinner parties, restaurants.”
#6: “My child will never watch TV.”
#7: “When I have kids, I’m still going to exercise and do my makeup.”
#8: “Having a kid is no excuse for a messy house. You can still clean while they sleep or just sit there.”
#9: “Can’t you just tell your baby to go back to sleep?”
#10: “My kids are not going to walk around with runny noses.”
#11: “I don’t think I’ll take a maternity leave.”
#12: “I need to have a baby so I can go on maternity leave and get a three-month vacation.”
#13: “I’m going to freelance while I’m on maternity leave.”
#14: “I’ll use maternity leave as my chance to finish that baby blanket I was knitting.”
