Just wanted to vent about how I get questions about having more children. I am surprised when I say that my DH and I are planning on having at least 2 more. They must think that since I had my girls 15 1/2 years (to the day!!!) apart that we are done having more. Then they always ask "oh are you going to try for a boy?" well it drives me nuts. No we have no plans on "trying" for a boy, I actually tease my DH about having all girls and if this happens he will so get a "man room" to escape to when they are all teenagers...lol...My DH is wonderful about it, would he like a boy, sure but he would be so happy with all girls too. I actually remember looking at his reaction when the u/s tech said girl to see if he was disappointed at all and he glowed absolutely glowed hearing that he was having a girl (even though he so knows what he is in for when she hits her teenage years with my ODD).
I guess it bothers me that because I had my girls so far apart that many are flabergasted that I wanted to "start over again". Goodness I had my ODD at 17 and of course I wanted more but only after I was in a place that I could take care of the one I had....sorry it took 15 + years to get there. Uggghhh It really surprises me that some people just feel the urge to question my choice to expand our family.
Okay sorry for my rambling rant but just needed to vent that!
