Its As Bad As You Think

So I am walking home after work yesterday. B is in the stroller talking a mile a minute and S is strapped to me in the carrier.

A woman walks besides me and says, "I know its not easy but you have two beautiful children." I thank her and keep walking all the while thinking isn't that nice a little strange but nice.

A few moments later a man walks besides me " It looks like you have your hands full. I know its hard. I'm so glad my kids are in their twenties." OK now is that a coincidence or is something up.

I walk on and a third woman stops me. "You have such a great family. Don't worry It gets easier."

OK what the Hell!?! I know I haven't slept a full night in over a year. I know my pants don't fit and I didn't get to brush my hair today I might be walking a little erratically but really do I look so bad.... oh I get it... right.... poop

This made me laugh so hard. It is complex-inducing to receive comments like that. The first one you think...oh, how sweet and then after that...oh, how creepy! Too funny.

I think after so many children they stop feeling sorry for you and start judging you. My best friend has 4 children and all anyone can ever say to her are "are ALL of those YOURS?".

I much perfer to have only two and receive well-wishes instead.

Hilarious! I get it in the grocery store all the time. One in the cart and wearing the other one (who is always missing a sock by the end of the trip and they're telling me how cold her tootsies must be!).
