While it's fun to be with family and friends, it also can be a drag when they hand out unsolicited advice when it comes to family planning.  Are you going to be faced with nosy relatives over the holidays?

I will be, but I've gotten pretty good at warding off unwanted comments over the years since it took us so long to decide whether to have children. I generally make a snarky comment that will be guaranteed to stop further questions from coming. Some of my favorites usually involve TMI about our sex life ;)

I'm so tired of hearing comments about having another child. It's really nobody else's business, it's not like they will be the ones raising it. What works for one family does not mean that all families need to live by those standards. I'm getting to the point of avoiding one relative who is constantly in my face about my kids, my parenting, my life, etc. I think we'll be avoiding some gatherings at Christmas this year, I'm just not up for it.
