Moms of many - what do you say when someone says this to you? I have 4 kids, and they are all wonderful and we enjoy them, and yes, life is busy, but not hard. We love it! Yet sometimes neighbors/acquaintances say this to me, and it shocks me every time. I think sometimes they say it b/c my kids are young, and these people "know" it will be so much harder when they are older, but I don't know if that is for sure true (I suspect it depends on the family.) If I have more kids is not their business, and it shocks me that they would beg me to not have more. WTH?
I need a good comeback, and then maybe a non-provocative reply, too.
