Lightbulb Another response

I have been thinking a lot about how people with large families are targets for negative comments. Just yesterday my husband took two of our sons to the vet and the vet tech asked him how many kids we have when he told her four she said "when are you going to stop?"!!! This is the solution for all those hurtful comments we came up with. I can't wait to try it!
Usually when someone asks how many kids you have they say, "Wow", or "Oh my gosh" etc. Before they have a chance to be rude I'm going to say "yeah, we are so happy! You won't believe how many people are judgmentle though, as if us having lots of kids has anything to do with them!" What else can they do but agree?

I like it.

I'm not a mom of many, but I don't understand why people think it's so strange. I'm only a generation away from grandparents who had 10 kids. I'm always curious about big families, but like others have said, it's because I admire them.
