My hubby & I have one son and one daughter, and I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, “you have the perfect family”! I always want to ask, “What do you mean by ‘perfect’”–after all, they don’t know what goes on in our house & our lives–but I know that they mean that we conform to society’s expectations of what a family “should” be.

I get the same thing! And then sometimes, “Oh good, now you can be done.” Excuse me, but it’s not like I’m asking THEM to raise and support my children :roll:

Ignore the dissenters. If you feel bold enough, tell them it’s really none of their business and you put your trust in God.
