Exactly! It's like, we take good care of our children, our children are well behaved and nice little children, and we can totally take care of them, so why does everyone have an opinion?!? So we don't go out to eat or take vacations, who cares?! Pretty sure that's our issue, not anyone elses. Ugh, their loss! ;-)

I agree. I'm so PO'ed bc one of ny husband's friends assumed bc I'm not working and this baby is #4 that we are on welfare!! He even ran his mouth about how my poor kids have to sacrifice now. Like Chelly said so what we don't eat out, we don't take big vacations, and my 5 year old isn't a football star or my 4 year old a prima ballerina yet! My gosh my kids are spoiled rotten and my hubbys income gets us by fine. People that need welfare, use it, ones who abuse it, its not my fault, but I'm NOT using it, do NOT assuming I'm using it, and do start telling people your paying for my child!! It just burns me when ppl assume. My family is thrilled, hubbys family isn't overly excited but they weren't negative. A lot of our friends were negative. It's unheard of around here to have 4 kids. A friend of mine was saying how she's said her and her DH are done and explained how she doesn't feel like she could give the time and love to anymore. I said that's understandable. It's a personal choice though. I'm not saying I'm better than her bc I can "manage" more children but she's not better than me either bc her 2 get more 1 on 1 time. It's what works for your own family. It's ashame ppl can't just be happy. I've decided this is my last and everyone can be negative but I'm happy and enjoying every moments especially after thinking I had lost this pregnancy!

Ugh, people can be so ignorant and mean. Sorry you've had to deal with this.

But I'm glad you've decided not to let the BS affect your outlook. In the end, all that matters is how you feel about your life. :)
