adult - Oh. When are you due? (put excitement here......)
me - In June...right after school ends.
adult - Do you have any other children?
me -Yes....3 boys.
adult - Wow....3 boys? (my kindergartener walks up) Which one is this?
me - My oldest.
adult - Really? Your oldest? Oh....so....um.....3 boys, huh? Are you trying for a girl?
me - Nope. I'm trying for a puppy.
adult - Wow...4 kids. You really have your hands full.
me - (my response varies....if the adult has children I say, "You do, too." this is especially great if they only have 1 child. If the adult doesn't have children, I say, "It sure seems like it.")
adult - Are you going to have more children?
(there are a few possible meanings here....first is, "Do you know what causes pregnancy?" "If you do, did you mean to let this happen?" (that is interpreted as "are you going to let this happen again)
And finally, "Are you going to try for a girl?"
To this my response is ALWAYS "I have always said '4
kids,' I just happened to be blessed with 4 boys."
