"I Feel So Sorry For You"

by Dawn
(Southern Illinois)

I get this one a lot because my husband works a lot and I tend to be out with my kids alone. I'll be out with my almost 3 yr old fraternal twin daughters and some idiot will come up and say, "I feel so sorry for you." I have a temper, a bad one at that. I tend to go OFF on idiots who say this. "First, why would you say something that rude and thoughtless in front of my CHILDREN. Second off, you should really think about what you say, not all people are friendly and will blow off your blatant ignorance. I would highly recommend you walking away and very VERY fast." Usually mid speak people walk away, realizing I wasn't the best person to walk up to and be an idiot. I've had one actually tried to argue with me...I mentioned how I didn't *want* to go back to jail...she said I was going to hell and walked away. lmao

Comments to yourself
by: Anonymous

I have 5 yr old B/G twins and received alot of comments like that. I was asked why would you do that to yourself. Stupid people. I also got alot of grief from people cause when i got pregnant with my twins i had a 15yr old son and 10yr old daughter. I had them when i was 16 and 20 and would not cause a thing. My husband is the father of all 4. and we have been together for 21yrs. People need to mind their own business. Keep stupid comments to themselves.
I'm a happy mommy of a 20yr old son, 15 yr old daughter and 5 yr old B/G twins and would never of changed a thing.

Too bad one wasn't a boy!
by: Anonymous

Besides strangers saying they feel sorry for me, I also get "oh it's too bad one of them wasn't a boy then you'd have the million dollar family!" What the hell is with people? In front of my daughters, given they are too young to understand, but still!
I feel like saying "yeah well it's too bad you weren't born with a brain!"

Sigh! Some people!
by: TwinJoys

When I was pregnant & people found out I was having twins, they would look all happy & excited...until they found out that it was two boys.

You would think that I was given some sort of punishment, not two precious blessings! It always made me mad, too.

When someone actually had the bad sense to say thank God it wasn't them, I'd say, "& I thank God that it WAS me!"

They are only 9 months old, but I can already see how much they love each other. They can play together for the longest time, they share toys, & they even try to comfort each other! Most children don't learn sharing or compassion until after they start school.

I completely know how you feel! I have 2 sets of twins all under age 3! People can be really insensitive. People tell me they feel sorry for me all the time, or "better you than me". I always say, thank God for that...

I'm sure we all hear "You've got your hands full" a million times a day - I love that answer "No my HEART's full" - thank you!
