This single mother is fed up with the rude comments people make about her. So she’s calling them out on TikTok.
The mom blogs about her motherhood journey as @pocket_sizedhuman. Her daughter August is still practically a newborn, so while she’s only been a single mom for a few months, people are already weighing in with unwanted opinions. Here’s what she has to say about it.
Most of her videos in her “annoying things to say to a single mom” series feature the mom’s bewildered reactions to the ridiculous comments.
“We didn’t invite you as we thought you’d be uncomfortable being the only one with a baby,” the video caption read.
“You don’t look like a single mom,” she said in a different video from the series. “What are we supposed to look like? Is there a specific look?”
Her other pet peeves include when people say, “Yeah, I’m basically a single mom when my husband goes to work,” and patronizing things like, “We will find you a husband.”
People in the comment section related to the single mother’s commentary quite a bit.
“It’s like they think we want [a husband],” a user joked.
“’I’m basically a single mom because my husband works away a lot.’ Um no. You still have that person to rely on, if not physically then emotionally,” a person wrote.
“Had only a few friends before babies. Now my friends are other moms (they’re much better friends!)” another said.
