“How many?”

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on December 11, 2013

I saw this on Pinterest the other day and I just couldn’t resist posting it here…

counting kids

No matter where we go, we are always met with looks, stares, and questions. I generally don’t give it much thought – I smile, nod, and answer the questions. But, sometimes… well, I can’t help but sigh and roll my eyes.

No, really, how many kids do u have? Don’t you use any birth control? Pills? IUD? Depo?
There are lots of those in the market! But I recommend you to use pills, since IUDs are far more dangerous. Though pills are not 99.9% reliable, it’s safer than IUDs. I have read a blog about Mirena IUD and found scary side effects.

Hi Mary, thanks for stopping by!
I have been blessed with seven beautiful children. I believe they are all gifts from God and I’m in love with each of them. The choice to have as many kids as we do was my husband’s and mine, and ours alone.
That said, I did use the Mirena IUD for a short bit, but it ruined my body on many levels and I would never receommend it for anyone. You were right about that! You can read about MY experience here – http://www.fromdatestodiapers.com/migraines-and-the-mirena/

I feel your pain…. lol. We have 6 and we get this ALL the time. I find it so very interesting?? that people think it’s their business. If you don’t have “enough ” or if you have “too many” kids, people think it’s their business to tell you about it. I usually just try to smile and laugh it off also. I do believe that most of it stems from jealousy. People are truly amazed that a mom can handle that many I guess!
