I should change to my name to soccer mom since almost everything revolves around soccer.
Anyway last night we were at the fields. Mind you my hubby takes care of the fields as far as lining and all kinda of other stuff. I think he probably knows almost everyone out there. We are the biggest family in the club and obviously deal with many teams.
Well there is someone who we have really bad blood with, thankfully not on any team we are on, my daughter has guest played with her older girls team but that's about it.
Well long story short this chick and I had it out about a year ago. Anyways she was out there last night. I had to walk past her to get to my little kids playing and as I was walking back I hear "yah, that's all they need! Another kid!"
I don't think she realized I was coming back or what. I jus kept walking and I wanted so bad to turn around call her some nasty names and punch her!!!!'
So annoying! The hard thing to do is often the best - take the high road. Honestly people like that are not worth your time. And if you don't feel like taking the high road, you can always pretend to and thank her for her compliment, THEN just ignore her. She'll at least be confused.
I'm so sorry you have to deal with this Every child is a blessing. It's a shame that she can't see that. I know it really makes you irate. I applaud you for not punching her or saying anything. It's very hard to be silent when someone openly criticizes your life when it's not their business. Try think of it this way, she'll never know the joy of having 8 children and a big family for family gatherings. She'll have limited weddings she gets to attend. She'll have less to celebrate as her children mature. She won't get to spoil as many grandchildren as you will. When it's her time to leave this Earth, she won't have as many people around her to surround her and send her off with love. She'll never know the love you feel each and every day from each of your children. If that doesn't help, just remember, ugly is soul deep and karma will bite her in the butt one day for being this snotty and rude.
Believe it or not, I get this all the time with my 3 children and dread actually popping with this pregnancy. I hate the snide "Oh you've got your hands full!" No. I don't. Having my hands full would be not knowing the love of my children and being without them to wander the Earth.

I wish I could say something funny to lighten the situation but I can't think of anything. It's so junior high. I'm sorry So rude and tacky.
I agree. What is wrong with people these days? Moms, please all teach your children "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!" At least we will all know our children won't grow up to be jerks like this lady. She is a lesson in how not to behave. I am so sorry!!!
