A mother out shopping with her three children took to Facebook with an open letter to a woman who commented on her number of kids. I am no stranger to this phenomenon. I remember when I was at the mall, pregnant with my sixth child, and I literally had swarms of old ladies around me asking about all the children. There’s no just blending in when you have a crew of my size.
There are a few ways I have dealt with the attention of having numerous spawn:
The most astounding thing about this mother getting that comment in the grocery store is that SHE ONLY HAS THREE KIDS! MOFOMs (Mothers of Four or More) everywhere are laughing at the notion that three kids is a lot. I remember the days of having three kids as the calm before the storm.
Any big family mamas out there? How do you cope with the attention - negative or positive - when out and about with your crew?
