My girls are 2yrs apart and I am asked at least once everytime i go out of they are twins.

My son is going through a really tough terrible twos phase. I mean like blood curtling screams and kicking hitting and such. I get older ladies telling me I don't need anymore and to stop ay this one. This one pisses me off and I tel them I plan on having a total of 6. Lol. Of course this isn't true but it's funny to see their reaction.

All the time!!! This exact phrase....Are they all yours? I was at best buy a few weeks ago, had all four boys and the best buy lady literally yelled across the store at me this question.......roll eyes, yes.....wth do you think?

I think there is an unspoken rule that waitresses do/say the craziest stuff. No offence as I've been one, DH works in restaurants. Drives me crazy when they put an open cup or a piping hot plate right in front of the baby Happens SO often. Then I hate if they touch the kids hair, faces etc....I don't know you, don't twirl my kids hair.



When you have all of one gender the lines keep coming:

Are they all yours?

Next one will be a girl?

Are you trying for a girl?

Were you trying for a girl?

You have your hands full.

One more and you'll have a soccer team.

All boys!! Poor you? - this one royally pee's me off as I don't think 4 girls or 4 boys are any easier?

Aren't you tired of looking at those things? - GMIL when changing LO, meaning his pp.



Answers I'd love to say:

No, just some random kids I picked up

Yes, 4 boys.....I should just adopt out a couple of them, right?

Actually I have 3 girls at home.......

DP....


I should add that all 4 of my boys have crazy long lashes, 3 have very blue eyes and one has hazel. They constantly get comments about the eyelashes and big eyes. The most common is how beautiful they are etc......then the classic:

Why do the boys get all the long eyelashes?

even

They are wasted on boys??????


Really, because my boys can't be beautiful too? I have some pretty boys
