A Pause in the Conversation

If after you've politely introduced yourself and answered questions about what you do for a living, the SAHM you're talking to then earnestly tells you she can't imagine how working mothers leave their children every day and live with the guilt, what do you say?

(Although it may be your first instinct to snap that you can't imagine how rude and overbearing stay at home mothers live with the guilt of subjecting vulnerable offspring to their constant presence, your response should not include ad hominem attacks or profanity.)
