Ok so I met this lady last week when I took my kids to our local aquatic center and we got to talking. She also had a 2 year old and seemed nice enough. We decided to meet up agin this week with a friend of mine who also has a 2 year old. After swimming we had lunch together and we started talking! My friend who has a 2 year old also has been trying to have another baby since her son was son was 6 month old with no luck. She is getting soo frustrated and just thinking of not TTC anymore.

So this new lady I met says to her, "well you are lucky that you haven't got pregnant yet because you don't want your kids too close together." I looked at her funny and said, "yeah like me." ha ha. I could tell she felt bad like she offended me but I tried to be cool about it. But then she said, "well you didn't plan to have your kids close together did you?" So I told her my story and then she said " I just think it is crazy that somone would want to purposely have their kids close together." So yeah I guess she is pretty against people having kids close together but maybe next time she should keep her feelings to herself. I tried to change the subject and just said, " even though my son came sooner than planned I wouldn't have it any other way and even though it is hard sometimes I love having my kids close in age because they will be close growing up." I think she was secretly jealous because I have two pretty great kids, he he!

I've got a lot of those comments too I hope she just got her foot in her mouth and couldn't get it out, not that she was really trying to be rude. Either way, she should learn to keep her mouth shut

What a dummy. Seriously, why is it a bad thing having kids close in age?! I really don't get why people think it's such a negative thing, I think it's anything but negative!!

Sounds to me like she has foot in mouth syndrome. Also sounds like she tried to get out of it but it only got worse!! someone call the doctor!!

i get the comments sometimes but not too much. mostly "friends" who only have one. we didnt plan it but we figured we would just make the best out of a stressful situation. im miserable because i only had five months between pregnancies and for me its physically stressful. in 2007 my liver failed on me, i got pregnant in about the middle of 2009 so i was just recovering. then gave birth in april of 09 then got pregnant around september/october of 09 so i would have preferred to have healing time but other than that im good.

Ugh people like that are SO annoying. I mean with a comment like that she could have offended you and the other lady so why even say that. I mean if this other friend of yours has been TTC since her son was 6 months she wanted to have her kids close in age and this lady has the audacity to tell her that her inability to conceive another child is a good thing.
