I'm new here, so I'm not sure if you've discussed this before or not, but here's my question:
How do you respond to people's comments when you go out and about with your multiples, or even if it's just family members, when they see you with your babies and all the comments are about how overwhelmed you must be?
Everyone who talks to me or stops over, says the same thing. I always get "OMG.....you must be so overwhelmed."
I do have my hands full, but it's also almost a disservice to the babies to not mention how awesome this experience actually is when I've been sitting at home in full blown amazement. I feel sort of weird hitching onto that line of thought-you know lol?.
Though on "bad" days when I get this comment, It's tempting to burst into tears and tell a complete stranger about how I haven't slept in two days.
On good days, I say stuff like "it's just hands down the coolest thing I've ever experienced" which is also little off since I get this weird impression that most people feel like a heel after I respond positively. It's like they realize they've said something that may have been negative to a new mom?
I need a good one liner so I don't get trapped. I realize people are only being kind and saying what they're expected to say, but I don't know what I'm "expected" to say back lol. I'm not feel particularly artistic at the moment, so a polite and warm response on the tip of my tongue would be nice to have in my back pocket.
