"I get the how do you afford your kids a lot...i always keep em guessing and never act presumptious as in well we can...but completley opposite ...it drives ppl buggy..".well then how do you afford this this and this" ..."we just do it" lol"
That's the part I find so incredibly rude. Not. Their. Business. Especially since I am pretty sure that your kids have shoes and appear to get fed once in a while.
The question about whether you are related to the local notables, that is a bit more understandable. Dh gets that a fair amount. He has the same last name as someone prominent, but the guy is no relation as far as we know.
I dont want this to sound braggy please take it at face value...When we first moved to the area i was very high profile b/c of what dh opened in this little country town
LOL, I would go nuts in a place like that, but you seem to take it in stride. That said, I have gotten some doozies in the past too.
Or: "Oh boy, it is really something. There is only one thing that will keep her quiet and, you know, I have a business to run as well."
