Re: Hurtful comments about family size...
We are expecting our #6, 5 by birth. Although he was a great big surprise we know that he will be an amazing part of our family. We get a lot of comments from family. Really it is no ones concern. My mom in particular claims support but then makes comments like "we know who wears the pants in that family....nobody" She even says it to friends and business associates regarding the amount of grandchildren they have. There was a thread about this a while ago and a mom said that when people say rude things she just looks at them and says "what an odd thing to say..." I am so going to start using that!
Just in case.
