to the OP.
I try not to be too sensitive because sometimes the OMG! reaction is just their mouths opening before their brain starts working
and they don't mean it to be bad. However, it sounds like that woman just didn't know when to stop.
It is especially maddening when people make their ugly comments in front of children.
Cafepress has some awesome, awesome t-shirts for large families. I've always wanted the "Birth control is for sissies" one but wouldn't have the guts to wear it.
Because, well, it would be rude and i wasn't brought up to be rude, unlike *some* people who think other peoples reproductive behavior is fair game for unsolicited commentary.
Since I have three boys the one I get most is "Oh, trying for a girl, huh?". I know that will be said over and over and over again next time I show up pregnant.
As if my last two boys were "failed" tries for a girl.
: I would looooove to have a girl, but I would also love to end up with a massive horde of just boys.
