I'm new to this group and am so happy to have found it. I have one child, a boy who turns eight tomorrow. I've always wanted more children, but for some reason, that hasn't been in the cards. I have had a hard time accepting this and am trying to make peace with it. I feel guilty, because I feel like I should feel full with one child. I love my son SO MUCH, and I am not dismissing how happy I am that he's in my life. He doesn't know how much I struggle with this; I'm getting much better with it and I feel so lucky to be a mom.
But dealing with the rude comments from others is what is so hard to deal with sometimes. I find some witty comebacks, but I was wondering if any of you have any that you can suggest, ones that have worked really well.
Someone once suggested that when someone asks a rude question, to ask her/him a rude question right back, like, "How is your marriage going?" or "What kids of issues are you having with your kids? You must not have time to really see what's going on with them, huh?" I wanted to know if any of you have more good comebacks you can share. :-)
I'm all ears if you want to share!
