The Dumbest Thing Anyone's Ever Said


I get all kinds of comments when I'm out with the twins and Jack- better you than me, double trouble, you've got your hands full, who's the smartest, who's the sweetest, who was born first {why does it matter?}, and on and on. Occasionally I'll get the "you're so blessed", which I am, but that is rare and it is usually said by little old ladies. But today takes the cake. While we were at the grocery store a woman came up to me and said, "Aren't little girls so much better than little boys?" With Jack standing right there! Now I don't know if he heard or even understood what she said, but still. people are dumb sometimes.

Wish I had been there! That lady would have really gotten a piece of my mind. In fact, I'm furious just thinking about it! I hope my sweet Jack didn't hear! He makes me think that boys are AWESOME!

I wonder what they will say to us with 5 boys, especially with the oldest being 5.

I too hear "better you than me" ALL the time when I'm out and about! I must say I've never heard the one about girls though. Honestly, if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all! :) Glad you found my blog! I'm looking forward to reading yours, especially looking back to when your girls were about 10 months like my twins are now. :)
