Um, excuse me rude stranger, do you not realize that minimizing the importance if my sons is hurtful to them?? Do you not see that commenting that we 'finally did something right' means our boys were all wrong?! Please close your mouth and walk away before I
Oh me gee I could have written this verbatim!
And don't forget "Oh now you have a little princess to spoil!"
Like our boys are chop liver? She's just as spoiled as our boys were thank you. If she turned out to be a boy he would have been just as loved. We aren't finding out the gender with this one (due in 5-6 wks!!) partly because I don't want to deal with comments. It never occurred to me that we would still get comments like "So this is your last right?". I understand people feel the need to comment when they see a big family but can they please think before opening their mouths???
I lift my eyes unto the hills, Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, The Maker of Heaven and Earth. And I'll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands, For You are who You are no matter where I am, And every tear I've cried You hold in Your hand, You never left my side and though my heart is torn, I will praise You in this storm
