I need some good come back comments...

I am going to be visiting a lot of people this summer and I am in need of some good come back lines. My dh and I have 4 children and I am constantly getting snide comments from certain family members and aquaintences about the number of children we have. The comments usually are along the lines of....Oh wow you have so many kids...why did you have so many or If I were you I would have never had kids to begin with because they are to much trouble.

How would you answer these people back. My response to them is me just walking away so that I don't cuss them out.

  • They are cheaper if you buy them in bulk.

    The more you have the easier it gets.

    We weren't doing anything better with our lives.

  • Four kids is not very many in todays world! What is wrong with these people.......I would just consider the source and go on about my own business......I don't think that I would try to make any wise cracks at them.......I would laugh at them and move on ! lol and good luck!

  • I would just say "there's more to love, and you can never get too much of that!" Kill them with kindness, that's always worked for me!!

  • Embarrass them with sex comments, I guarantee they will quit asking why you have so many kids. We get it all the time too, we have three.

    "I just can't keep Joe off of me, I try to make him stop but he is like a dog, he will hump anything....He he he, maybe I shouldn't have said that."

    "We think sex is the most important thing in a marriage, and a condom just ruins it."
