 ...that when you're a mom to more than one boy people at stores will treat it like it's a bad thing, or like it's more difficult than having all girls?

"Oh my, three boys?? You must be exhausted!" "Three boys? They're all yours?? Oh poor mom!"

Seriously, my boys are delightful children and actually are more polite and well behaved than most children I see in public, why should that deserve a 'poor mom'?! I have never let my children stop me from going out in public, I take them with me everywhere from grocery shopping, eating out, even to the library when I want to check something out. 

Then, of course, there is the "So when are you going to try for your girl??" Ha, like that's any of your business in the first place! It never ceases to amaze me the things that fall out of peoples mouths. They don't seem to care at all if it could be offensive or inappropriate at all.  Anyone else run into the same situations?

I get it, too.

Once while going for a walk with all three, (younger ones in double stroller, DS1 riding his bike), I heard it from four different neighbors in the same stretch of street. People sitting on their porches and commenting away: "Whoa, are all three YOUR's?!" (no, I stole one a mile back) and the one I love, "You are crazy, woman!!" and I just smile and keep walking.

I heard it all the time with 2 sons, and I still hear it with a girl in the mix.

 Lol @ I stole one a mile back Happy  LOL

Yeah it doesn't really help for me that I'm 24 but I look a LOT younger than that. So people seem to think I'm just a very horny teenager who doesn't understand how to use birth control O_o. Ahhh well, I'll enjoy the 'You look a lot younger than..." comments when I'm say, in my 40's & 50's Happy Wink

Hell yeah enjoy them! I never hear I look young. I usually hear: "You poor dear...you look tired." Tired is another way of saying I look like crap imo. I got ridiculously happy when the cashier carded me for wine a week ago. Stick out tongue

I never understood why people feel the need to tell you that you look tired, I mean honestly. How is one supposed to reply to that?? "Gee...thanks..." I definitely agree that it just sounds like they're saying you look like crap. 

Woo for getting carded!! Happy LMAOAgreeHappy  LOL

Are you going to find out what you're having when you have your ultrasound? I always thought I wanted a surprise but whenever my ultrasounds drew near I just couldn't wait to find out what I was having Happy Giggle!

I say that too...have you ever had someone furrow their eyebrows in confusion and cock their head like a dog listening to weird sound when you say that? I have...it's like they can't believe I enjoy being a mom!

 I get it everywhere I go. My boys are 21 months apart, and this baby I am carrying now will be 21 months from my current youngest (But it's a girl). Everyone looks at me and says 'MY you have your hands full! Two little boys must be hard!'

Ummmm no, not really. LOL
