THE QUESTION THAT MAKES ME CRINGE

The conversation begins with typical chit-chat. Do you have kids? How many? How old are they? Once those basic facts are established, the focus turns to me. “And what do you do?” My answer is simple. “I’m a full-time mom.” Sometimes that answer is sufficient. Other times, it’s not.
