Do you all have some witty come-backs for those who feel they need to interject into your life?
I often get the questions like, "Is she your only child?" or "Are you hoping to have more children?"
Because we've been TTC for so long unsuccessfully, I've often said, "Yes, she's our only" and "We're trying!" But, now that we're not actively trying (not preventing either, but realistically, if it hasn't happened while trying for 3 years other than once with a result of miscarriage, so I'm not entirely sure that it would ever happen), I can't necessarily keep saying "We're trying!"
And how do you answer someone who you're not sure if they are asking out of curiosity or out of scorn about whether you ONLY have one child? I'm not sure if I'm being clear with that question, but I'm not sure myself whether some people are genuinely curious about our child-status or whether they are asking because they think we should be providing a sibling for our DD.
