Re: Super Nosey Family Members

My mom is very vocal about DH needing to "get fixed". We were taking my DS #4 to a follow up appointment when he was 3 DAYS old and she basically cornered and grilled me about it in the waiting room. I eventually told her, "Mom, they are OUR reproductive choices, not yours! Drop it!" She eventually apologized, but I know she's going to flip out when/if we get pregnant with #5. I get what she is saying, I really do. We are very busy people. So I understand what she's saying. But my argument is (and I told her this!)- My children are the only things I'm going to leave behind on this earth. They are my legacy. To me, they are the most important thing I've ever been a part of and we take parenting very seriously. She just doesn't get it.
