Re: I swear I'm going to start poking people's eyes out! LOL

I think you're answers are hilarious! The sad part is that I got some of those comments when I was pregnant with my FIRST!

People are just strange . . .

Re: I swear I'm going to start poking people's eyes out! LOL

You know, I only have three- twins and a 2 month old- but when I was pregnant with #3 people would always ask "is it twins again?" or "how many this time" and go on about how hard twins would be.... now that I have #3, I get "do you know what you're having?!" The nerve! Can't you see I have an infant? Do you really think it's possible to have a newborn (this was at a few weeks old) and be 4 months pregnant again?! Hmmm...... people just don't think before speaking these days! But I agree with everyone else, I just laugh and say, "oh no, this is actually a recovery bump" Hee hee

I do get the comments all the time and by now Im used to it, we have had more especially when we have had foster kids. The one I get the most is "boy you have your hands full" and I just smile and say "yes, better full then empty"
But I have gotton negative comments but I just ignore or say "why would you ask that?"
As I tell my children most people are ignorant and just smile and ignore them.

BTW I think the one that still bugs me the most is when people have the nerve to ask me how we support them all. Really!? I would never ask someone how they support themselves.

I have four and would love one more if I can convince DH.I am tired of my family and coworkers thinking they have the right to tell us we should be done!I dont understand why others feel the need to comment as we support and look after the children on our own.The only ones who say nothing is my in laws who do baby sit once in a while.

Okay, that's mean!!!! So sorry that happened to you. People are rude!

We just get some odd looks occasionally right now (we have 4 kids, all little), but when people find out that we're pregnant again, we get some interesting comments. I had a friend send me a link to a site that had some GREAT t-shirts for moms with big families. Like:
"Yes, they are all mine.
Yes, I know what causes it.
Yes, I'm glad it's me and not you as well."

Maybe you need to get a shirt LOL! Our standard answer to "don't you know what causes that?" is "No! Nobody will tell us--will you *please* explain it to me???"
