A lot of people make certain assumptions about women once they become mothers. They expect that women will (or should) change in a few universal ways, and if they don't something is essentially "wrong" with them. The technical term for this phenomenon is "complete and total crap" because come on, obviously this is complete crap, you guys! And you know who knows that as well as anyone? Grown-ass men. Indeed, there are things no grown-ass man should ever say about a mom, either in general or in particular, because we should all be past this.
Becoming a mom can be a transformative experience, physically, and emotionally. Or not! You could be, like, the exact same person in every way except now your life is different (because whether or not motherhood changes you, it will change your life). Regardless of how motherhood impacts you, what should not happen is for people to expect you should or will change to conform to a preconceived notion of what motherhood is, means, or does to a person. Because there is no one version of motherhood! Mothers are actual people, with depth and nuance and their own personalities, motivations, and back-stories. So a grown-ass man would never attempt to insert his (or, more likely, society's) ideas of motherhood into another person's life.
So with that in mind, and because a refresher is needed from time to time, here are a few things a grown-ass man refuses to say about a mom. Any mom. Ever.
