STFU Parents: “30 Days Of Thankful” Updates: Sweet Or Sanctimonious?

5. Thankful To Be A SAHM

6

Well, pin a big, shiny ribbon on Nicole! Not only does she have the good fortune to stay home with her child, but her kid is advanced as a direct result of her primary caretaker role. That’s a reason to be thankful if I ever heard one.

Of course, not everyone stays home with their children, or even wants to, and many of those people’s children are perfectly intelligent, too. Maybe instead of using “30 Days of Being Thankful” to humblebrag, parents like Nicole could just stop writing after the first sentence. Sometimes less is more, even when giving thanks.
On that note, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who reads this column each week. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
