I know that it is not unusual to have your kids 20 months apart, nor is it that unusual these days to have twins. So what I would like to know is how come every stranger I see has to make some kind of comment about my life?
I've been unable to get out much this summer and go shopping and have thus avoided the many crazy comments I am now receiving. Of course now my belly is very noticeable and people just can't seem to walk by me without saying something either to me, under their breath, or to the person next to them. It's not like my girls are screaming or throwing fits while we are out. They are always well behaved and I'm always glad to be out and about. Again, I understand that my kids will be close in age and that I will be pretty busy, but hey....the Lord did this and we feel blessed. We never planned twins, and we never planned to be pregnant again so soon. We are excited they will all be close and feel blessed the Lord has given them to us. Of course I'm not going to ramble all of that off to a stranger after they make an exasperated comment at me....but what I am searching for is a really good come back. I need something to say to them that will make them stop and think and say, "wow, there is something different about her." So I am enlisting your help. Who can come up with the best come back comment. Maybe you'll have some inspiration after I tell you just a FEW of the comments I received at just ONE store yesterday:
"wow, are they twins? and you're expecting another one?"
"I don't know how you are going to do it!"
"You sure are busy"
"How old are they?" - then these people (who worked there) kept staring at me while I shopped for like 5 minutes!
"You are going to be busy, but....you'll survive!"
"Girl, you need a hole in your head"
are you kidding? help! :)
