Don't Feel Sorry for Me

Today my husband and I went out w/ new baby. Every once in a while we go out to breakfast at the same restaurant. Usually, we have the same waitress, a thirty-something, mom-looking woman. I realized while talking w/her that she had never seen all of our children w/us. Farmerboy had come in a bit before on his way to school. I mentioned that he was our oldest and she commented that was quite an age gap. I then told her not really because we had 9. Her reply was "You poor thing." I, of course, said" no, it's actually a lot of fun."
Yes, I really mean that. It is hard work, it is tough sometimes, but I am always glad we have ALL of them. Life would be pretty boring with out them.
Please don't feel sorry for me, I am blessed.

  1. Absolutely. Even though A. hasn't found the carrying and delivery to be something she wants to do a lot of, every one is a blessing. And the one(s) that got away leave a hole.

    She has a HS classmate who once said something like (in reference to her kid(s)), "I wish they'd never been born." Seems the ultimate in narcissism to me ... a very, very, self-centered (read 'sinful') POV. Sounds like this person's opinion is heavily influenced by the world.
