Mother of all Questions.  -


Gaaaaaaaaah!!!!!! People are so rude! I only know a couple of families with same sex parents and there *are* things I wonder about which are specific to lesbian couples BUT I don’t think they’re any of my business – if you want me to know the details of how you made certain decisions and why, you’ll tell me (or blog about it); otherwise, I’ll have to live without answers. Likewise, it was nobody’s business but mine and Steve’s why we hadn’t had a baby yet – a particularly hard question to be asked after our miscarriage. And it’s nobody’s business but mine and Steve’s (and possibly Matilda’s) whether we’ll have any more (yep, getting asked this a lot right now). Why do people think other people’s families are open for discussion? WHY?!?!?!?! (you might have touched some sore points there)

Oh you’re so right, people do just ask the most inappropriate things don’t they?? For us it’s always the question addressed to my husband – are you going to try for a boy? No. F off.

I hate this question. We’re not planning on having a second, and people are always trying to tell me why we NEED two. Um–no. I was an only child and I did just fine!

Kate Everall says:

Oh god! Yes. I had a sister and constantly fought – there’s my argument for one! Haha!

They waited for a year. My in laws were asking a few days after he was born!

KDJ says:

We were asked this question by the midwife on our day 1 visit ! lol!

Kate Everall says:

What?! That’s awful! They of all people should know better, even if it was a joke.
