I'm a mother of 4, and am 24. I hear a LOT of crap from people in stores, resturants, schools I mean you name it! I've had people stare at me, if I ever go into a store, school or resturant alone. Older people will smirk and ask "why do i have so many kids so young?" And they bet that I'm "living off the state"...etc. I have NO tolerance for this crap and it really offends me at my sons school. Teachers will even give me looks, and say things like, "Can you believe she has 4 children already? I mean how does she divide time?" I am very hot-headed but will grin and bear it if my children are around, but you can bet your bottom that when I'm with no kids I'm going to call someone out! I've lost friends or so called friends by having my children. I LOVE my kids and NO I Don't live off the state! My fiance and I work for our money, and provide all we can to our children! I don't care that these people think they know me, I think what gets to me is that they say these things knowing that I'm not giong to say anything back, ecspecially since they say it when My children are present. Ugh!!! How does anyone else handle comments?
