Mamas with 4+ kids...

I thought you mamas with many would appreciate this. We have four and while I don't think that is a lot, and I do want more, I get all of these comments several x's a week!

I thought of one missing for us that we get all the time "You wern't gonna stop till you got your girl. hehe!"..... I hate when ppl saythis. Especially around my boys. It makes me feel like somehow they are infering that I really didn't want them and I just kept popping them out until I'd have a girl. As a matter of fact we want more. I don't plan on putting a number on it. We'll get prego when we feel like it again and again and again! LOL! Our dd was an oops, but yes a blessing from God.

Any others that you hear alot that are missing?

They left out "Do they have the same Daddy?"

I have five, and am Catholic LOL.

This is too cute

Re: Mamas with 4+ kids...

I also have four children. All four girls... I hear it all the time.

Wow, did you keep trying for a boy? Daddy must want a little boy!

Are you going to keep having "them" until you get a boy?

Boy, are your hands full!

Ugh! people need to mind there own business.

All my girls were very much wanted and I wouldn't have it any other way. (I might change my mind when I have 4 teenage girls )

We are trying for our 5th and final baby this summer and boy or girl it will be welcomed into our arms and loved just the same.

We all have the same last name (DH adopted), but get this all the time b/c I've got brown hair w/ brown eyes and some w/ blond hair / blue eyes.And dd is now strwbeey blond hair w/ hazel Go figure. HA! we just tel ppl who it's none of their business that some take after me and some take after DH.

Re: Mamas with 4+ kids...

I don't usually mind the passing comments too much. I just smile and say "Yup, better full than empty" most of the time. Though I do like to pull people's leg sometimes, when they ask if they are all mine at the checkout line in Walmart, sometimes I just say "Do you really think I would volunteer to bring all the neighborhood kids with me to Walmart? Yes, they're mine!"

Also I like to fight fire with fire, hee hee, if people start getting nosey like "You do know what causes that?" kind of questions, I fight back with TMI with something like "Yeah, but my dh's so good at it I just can't say no." Usually shuts them up.

We probably won't be having any more after #5, but to all those people who feel the need to tell us one of us needs to get "fixed" I just say, "Yeah maybe, and then we could just adopt a few more."

Re: Mamas with 4+ kids...

I love it!!! I get all kind of comments the worst are from my mother. From her I get them all the time last time she made a comment I just told her we had different morals and standards than she does and we don't see our children as a burden but a blessing. It just drives me crazy she has never not once been happy for us. Sry off topic there. I love that video it made me smile I cant wait to show it to dh

Re: Mamas with 4+ kids...

I only have three kids and get comments. It seems like two is just over the limit for some people! When asked if they're from the same father my husband really wants me to say, "Yeah, but we can't figure out who the mother is." Anyway, I know I don't have four, but I can relate to some of the rude comments that are made.

Re: Mamas with 4+ kids...

most of the rude comments I hear are from family members...I had a lady at the mall ( a young 30ish woman) stop us and told us she thought it was wonderful we had a large family...it was nice to hear for once
