Lots of Kids Quote

I read this book called “True Mom Confessions: Real Moms Get Real” and it’s helped me with some of my judgmental attitudes. Over the next few days I’ll throw you some quotes from the book. There’s also a web site you can check out. Here ya go:

“Today, when I saw my neighbor seven months pregnant and with three kids around her ankles, I told myself I’d be in the loony bin, but the truth is, I wish more than anything I was her.”

Makes me wonder about the complete strangers who call me crazy to my face for having so many kids and then spend 5 minutes justifying why THEY only have 2 kids. Instead of getting annoyed with them, I need to just let it go.

  1. I think you are a super hero! I would like to have 2 more kids but any more than that I dont know what I would do. I think it is great that you are such a good momma to your kids. I see inspiration!

  2. Why is it that moms that have more than the 1.9 children are subjected to judgmental comments from others all the time, but if I said something to a mom of one about how I felt sorry for her, I'd be crucified. How dare we challenge her desire to be a career woman or her fertility, but it's ok to make snide comments to me whenever you want.
