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