I've had acquaintances say right in front of me (while pregnant with my 3rd) that having more than 2 children was financially irresponsible.

She honestly didn't mean anything by it, or even think that I was there, but I think that is just the mindset of others, that you must be irresponsible. Well I think it's irresponsible to have credit card debt for Christmas presents, or going out to eat 3 nights a week, or smart phones and cable. But everyone makes choices, and what might be irresponsible for me, won't be for them, and the other way around.

They might want to live a certain lifestyle that doesn't allow them to have more children in a financially responsible way and keep that up, I make different choices and I think it's really hard for some people to see past that.
