Funny Large Family Comebacks

While in an elevator today someone asked me "My, your hands are full!" I hear it a hundred times. Wherever I go. A lady standing next to me then asks, "Are they all yours??!!" Because I didn't want to be rude and say "Nooo, I just picked up a few along the road and took them with me", I just said "yes". "Dang!" she responded. We were just all quiet in response to her. My husband I get weary of always responding to these kinds of questions. It just depends on the attitude of how they are asking. Sometimes people are just curious. Just for fun I googled "Large Family Comebacks". I laughed so hard with some of them. :) I would have to add one or two to this list.

Q: You're getting fixed, right? Why nothing is broke
A: Is this your last one? Nope we hope he's/she's the middle child

Q: My, your hands are full!
A1: Yeah, and yours look empty!
A2: Yeah, I guess some people just aren't as blessed as we are.

Q: You know what causes that, right?
A: Yes I know what causes it, and I LIKE it!

Q: Don't you know what causes that?
A: Oh yes, we finally figured it out and we now keep the tooth brushes in seperate glasses!

Q: Don't you know what causes that?
A: Oh yes, I now wash my husband's underwear seperately

We get the same type of questions with our kids..."are they yours?" We usually just say "yes" and leave them hanging as to why they are brown. Today someone actually told us how much Cupcake is taking after her Daddy, meaning DH, that was worth all of the stupid questions!

I had my first 6 kids in 10 years.. I was asked ALL THE TIME "Are they all yours?".. and "How do you do it?"... I used to just say "I'm REALLY FERTILE"... or "I don't know... how do you think I did it?"...LOL!

BWA! Chris, you should write an advice column for how to deal with "people."

I get the same thing and I only have four kids! It gets old, as though people are shocked to see someone with more than one kid? I always think that everybody should have at least four kids! It is tough, WE know it, so why are they telling US we have our hands full? BTW, my sister nicknamed me "Fertile Mertle". Thanks, sis. I told her she'll be blessed with triplets. ha ha
