I know that there are many people out there with just as many children or even boys as myself. In fact, there are many people out there with more children than me. However, it must be pretty uncommon where I live, because when I go out in public, people stare like we are the latest freak show attraction at the state fair. Have you never seen a mom with four boys people? Then, there are the silly questions people like to ask…
Are They All Yours? – Nope, I just borrowed a few from the orphanage to take with me to the grocery store.
Are They Triplets? – I know my boys look alike, but this is usually asked of my 11,9 and 7 year old. You can clearly tell they are not triplets.
Do They All Have the Same Dad? – Social filter much? Are you hoping I admit to being a slut? Three do and one does not, is that really any of your business?
Your House Must be a Mess Right? – Actually no. Just because I have four boys doesn’t mean we never clean up.
Your Hands Must be Really Full? – You think? What is that supposed to mean though? Do I look like I can’t handle it or are you just waiting for me to snap?
You Are So Lucky to Have Had Boys – Okay, so it isn’t a question, but have you ever tried to raise four boys that are close in age? You may not be saying that if you had.
Are You Going to Try For a Girl? – No. Do I look like I need more kids? Do I need a girl to fulfill my life?
I know there are more, but I can’t think of them right now. Anyone care to share the silly questions you have been asked? Feel free to leave them in the comments below. I would love to hear that I am not alone.
