Re: Hurtful comments about family size...
Personally I could care less when it's strangers but like you op said when its family :sigh: it's harder. Dh is a pastor of a small church and MOST disagree with us in our belief children are a blessing. It's sad but they hear what today's society says- its wasteful irresponsible etc and yes I've even had 2 different members tell so directly . I just start my soapbox but part of me is just sad they are so misguided thinking children are such a burden. They don't know the joy of a full house and warm hearth.
