"oh well you're still young" ugh so annoying...

Why do people say that?

I hear it all the time, when people discover ds is an only child and that I'm single, or sometimes just either or, I hear a sympathetic "oh well, you're still young."

Yes, yes I am.  But I fail to see how that is relevant.

Why the pity that I don't have more children and/or I am single?

Does it never occur to people that a) I don't want more children. b) I choose to be single. ??

Lmao I get the whole 'when are you having another?' 'Better start on another baby soon.' 'You don't want the children to be too far apart in age.'
Ds is only 17 months and I have been hearing it since he was 9 months old. Annoying!

My coworkers seem convinced that because I'm pregnant with my second boy I need to have a girl to complete my life. Nope... my baby maker is done

In my opinion, that comment probably isn't directed at your child being an only child.  I think most people assume that single people don't want to be single--that everyone wants to have a spouse/partner.  I know alot of people that are very happy and fulfilled being single.

actually, no.  I just don't like you.

I wasn't aware this was "starving africans forums"

Sorry my mom-related annoyances bother you so much.

I hope I never hear that. I'm only ever around close family and they think it's best idea I could make, sticking with one kid lol. And being single for so long that is starting to get some people talking like .... well you might want to start trying something by now.... but oh well. It's my life, not theirs.
