i could have written this. im also so sick and tired of the rude comments and stares. mine are all girls though ( 7 girls, had they all lived. one passed away shortly after her birth and the last one had a identical twin) so when i was pregnant with my last i got the worst comments. "hope you have a boy in there" "whats wrong with your husband?" "your poor poor husband all those girls" "invest in tampons!" and yes even the "you do know what causes that right?" "are you stupid or just crazy?"
yesterday i went off on some 70 year old lady in the supermarket. i had all 5 girls with me and we had just done family pictures so they were all dressed in pink. this lady just stopped and stared at me like i was some kind of walking freak show. so finally i just couldn't take it and i asked if she had a problem ( normally im a very nice woman i just was having a bad day) she asked me if i had enough kids.. i said umm no actually i don't im going to try for triplets next just to piss you off.
then i went to my sisters house. she has 3 boys. and i was late for a play date. my nephew said auntie you have too many kids, you took too long. i said im sorry sweetie who do you want me to get rid of? he said London but then you should get a boy. i said honey i would still have 5 kids even if i did get rid of London and get a boy... he said.. i know but it would be ok because you would have a boy.
we're lucky. i try my best not to pay them any attention but yes sometimes it gets to you. i think you are blessed.
