Oh how this totally annoys me. I know I shouldn’t let what others say affect me but I can’t help it. We do live in the USA and as we all know we have freedom of speech but people keep you opinions to yourself!!!
I was talking to someone the other day and the question came up, “Am I done having children?” My response as always was, “I’m not ready to completely say I am done having children. Some days I feel I would love to have one more but right now we are content with 3.”
Well, the response I got after that was totally unexpected and frankly quite annoying to say the least.
“Your hands are full with three boys. Do you want try one more time for a girl? Well, you know there is no guarentee it won’t just be another boy. You should just count your blessing you have 3 healthy children. The world is overpopulated enough.”
I am typically a very friendly person but I really wanted to hit her upside the head. But instead I just smiled and kept me mouth shut.
This is not the first time other people have made inappropriate comments to me.
Two that come to mind are:
A distant Aunt told me I should keep a plug in it. Thankfully I did say to her very nicely, I didn’t need to because I chose to have and wanted my 3 boys.
And I have also been told when I was unable to make it to a function due to my baby being sick, “That maybe it was time to keep my legs closed.” LOVELY RIGHT!!!
I just don’t understand what people are thinking when they say stuff like that. They are of course entitled to there own personal opinion but last I checked my decisions don’t affect them in any way. It’s my life, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!! 🙂
