I'll have TEN kids if I want! My uterus is none of YOUR business!
That is what I wanna tell people sometimes! I swear! I am 25 and pregnant with my 5th child and so many people make RUDE comments about it. I'm so sick of it!
1. All of my kids have the same father and we are married. We have a 7 year old boy, 5 year old boy and 2 year old boy/girl twins. And I'm pregnant with a boy.
2. He works and I am a SAHM. I am 25, he is 31.
3. Only WE take care of our kids. I very rarely ask anyone for help and if I do, it's my mom. She RARELY babysits for us. And I'm not complaining... just saying. It's not like I pass my kids off on anyone else.
4. We don't EVER ask anyone to help us financially either. We don't need it.
So.... why does everyone think it is THEIR business how many kids we have?! I am always annoyed over this but today has me especially pissed off. I have had TWO people in one day make rude ass remarks.
First... my mom was here and I told her that at my last ultrasound the baby was still breech and I was worried I might have to have a c-section if he doesn't turn. She says "Well, good. If you have a c-section they can just tie your tubes while they're in there! Or why don't YOU just get snipped (looking at DH)?" He said to her, "Maybe we want to have more kids." And my mom is like "Why would you want more than 5?!" So then instead of being rude and telling her it was none of her damn business, we just kind of changed the subject. My mom is always telling me what a wonderful mother I am... but she doesn't think we should have anymore kids. She just has the opinion that NO ONE should have a lot of kids. She says "With the way the world is these days, why would you want to bring anymore kids into it?" Well, I guess I don't think negative like her.
THEN... I went to Walmart and ran into an old friend. It seems like the only time I ever see her is when we run into each other at Walmart. lol. So anyway... she walked up to me and said hi and we started talking... and she JOKINGLY says "You're not pregnant, are ya? Every time I see you, you're pregnant again." So I just kind of laughed, stepped out from behind my cart and pointed at my belly and said "Yep. 7 months." She looked shocked and says "Oh my god, girl! Are you serious?!" I said yeah. She asked how many kids I have and I said 4. She says "So this is #5? Girl, you need your tubes tied or something!"
Wtf. Just w.. t... f?! Do people not realize how rude they sound when they say this stuff?!
Okay... vent over.
