Our Sympathy…


Today was a PD day for the boys, as is tomorrow. So they each had a friend over. One of the moms comes in and chats a few minutes. “How many boys DO you have?” she asks… so I told her.

“Oh dear, I feel sorry for you. I have only 3 boys.” Then she continues… “Are you going to keep trying for a girl?”
So I laugh and said “NOPE we are done. Girls are overrated at this point for us.”

She continues…”Well my last one was a girl, after the 2 boys.” Something on the lines of ‘thank God she is such a breathe of fresh air.’

Yet it was said with an attitude.

OK… that kind of pissed me off. First of all NONE of us are in control of what gender of child we are blessed with.
And what parent says that they feel sorry for you? Just send me a sympathy card and save your jibber jabber for someone who wants to hear it.

Tiresome. What do my sons think when they hear that %$#@?

Lady, you tell my how angelic your daughter is in a few years. We will then compare notes. Not to mention that I feel sorry for YOUR sons … that you view them as a burden. HUM…

Yes, I am offend. Get over it people… you are not the one that has the 6 (great, most of the time) BOYS! We are unique and we ARE capable. So quit with your sympathies. If I want it … I’ll ask for it.

Obviously my friend… you know the crap I hear… this was just one time too many.

    My condolences. I thank God I have two girls. 🙂

    You should have said, "wow, what did you do to get on God's good side?"
