why is it that everywhere i go with the four boys alone i feel like people are watching me? oh, that is because i am being watched.
i know it is pretty cool that they are all boys, who cares if it runs in the family – it certainly does now, and no i didn’t use fertility treatments (what’s that have to do with anything?), they are 11 months apart, no, they are not identical, it can be a handful, i am a busy lady – but i love every minute of it (i answer these questions every time we go in public). and oh yeah, god bless me. that is what people say when they don’t know what to say – god bless you. (if only i had a quarter for every time i heard that. i could afford to stay home with my kids).
don’t get me wrong, i know that people are just interested – and the boys can be so darn stinking cute. i appreciate the kind remarks. it just makes a stressful situation more stressful when the kids are acting up and i know i am being watched. people want to see how the lady with four young boys are going to handle the situation.
i have even had strangers come up to me that have seen me other places and remark how big they are getting, or “i think of you every time i find my child difficult – you have it times four.”
