maybe I was just to young when I started having kids and that why I have to deal with so much jealousy from other mothers over how many kids I have. I hear it all the time for family and close friends, they heard from a friend "she shouldn't have so many when you didn't really want them" and that makes me so mad! I love all my kids. I didn't plan 1. I have 5 and I'm 29 but I want them all!!! Yes it has been hard for me as there have been 3 dads but I'm not an idiot and I've taught them well. How do I deal with people who want more kids but can't take care of the 1/1's they have or just can't have more ,without being overly mean. It's not my fault I made a life of the cards I dealt myself while their play the boo hoo pour me crap.

I would just ignore it. You know that you are raising them just fine and it's no one elses's business what they think. I know I couldn't deal with 5 lol.
As for your "friend" maybe it's time to re evaluate that friendship. Friends don't say things like that.
