And I had all 5 kids with me. 3 were in the cart and the older two were walking. I can't ever make it through a shopping trip without someone making some snarky comment....so, I see this guy coming down the isle at us and I could tell he was going to say something. So I was going over the normal remarks in my head waiting for it...then, he says to me, "You need another boy!" And I didn't know what to say! So I just said, "soon enough." I've never had anyone encourage more kids! lol. I guess there's a first for everything.

Haha....I do the same thing (brace myself before the comments). I'm glad he didn't say anything rude about how many kids you have. I hate that. Especially when they say it in front of my kids.....like they are some sort of pests.

That was a funny/cute comment!

Last night I had a horrible shopping trip at Kohls with all 4...no one made any comments. Even when we were in line and the baby was crying. I wonder if I put out a vibe that tells people they'd better not joke or say a thing?
