I'm scratching my head on this one. Me and my husband have 5 kids. The oldest will be 11 next month, the youngest will turn 1 a couple weeks after that. The others are 9 1/2, 8 1/2 and 5. We didn't plan to have this many kids but it worked out and we like having a big family (most of the time...there are those days I'd like to tie them all up in the closet...but I usually find something else for them to do to get them out of my hair, lol).
My husband, thinking he's sooooo funny, posted on hi facebook that his sister was going to be an aunt for the 6th time. I saw it before anyone else and just rolled my eyes but didn't say anything.
This morning I was checking my facebook and there were a bunch of alerts. Seems his cousin, another relative and his sister posted back on that topic. His sister's response was "dumb asses."
Geeze. And they wonder why we didn't tell anyone about the last pregnancy until I was in my 3rd trimester. Every single baby (except the first 2) that was the response we got from family. Something along those lines or flat out telling us to our faces we were stupid and ruining our lives. What the hell is wrong with having a 6th baby?
For the record his cousin was happy for us and laughing when I posted this morning that I wasn't actually pregnant. It's because of that attitude that I felt I had to hide my last 3 pregnancies (one ended in a miscarriage at 12 weeks...they don't even know about that one, it was before I got pregnant with the last kid).
And if I was pregnant it wouldn't be a big deal to us. We'd have to tighten up our finances a little but we're doing okay. Our only debt is our truck (which will be paid off in April) and some medical bills from when the youngest was born. We rent a nice 3bed/2bath house (which is bigger than my sil's house--she lives with her mother and middle son, her other 2 kids don't live with her and the kid has a makeshift room on the back porch because the house only has 2 bedrooms). The kids are fed and clothed and we could afford another if we wanted. Especially come October when my husband tops out his pay at his job (a $6/hour raise)
I just don't get why we are "dumb asses" if we were pregnant (for the record I had my tubes tied so we aren't having any more but that point is lost on my sil).
I almost wish I was pregnant just to throw it in her face.
