To the people of Langley...

I have five kids. They are all very young. This is not crazy. It is perfectly normal for a person to have five kids. Yes they are all mine, I probably wouldn't wander around the mall with five young kids unless they all belonged to me. It is none of your business whether I plan to have more or not. Just because I have five kids doesn't mean I like to share my life story and plans for the future. If you see me walking around the mall in a slight hurry please do not stop me to ask all these dumb questions because it is more than likely I am taking one of them to the bathroom and don't have time to chat.
I love Chilliwack!

Wow, this is the second rant about people who are 'interested' in your family. Maybe you SHOULD go ahead with the T shirt idea. Or you could charge $1 per question and say that the money's going toward their university education!

I try to be really polite but when I am on a mission and have momentum it sure throws thigs off to have someone step out in front of us to tell me I have my hands full. Thanks they're my hands, I know, now outta the way!

Let's just order shirts with numbers on them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

I think you should just put shirts on them that say:

"yes, she's my Mom and yes, she is young and yes, she is married to our father - Now get outta her way!"

These days all of the above are very abnormal...you are doing a great job though!

Jennifer.....I feel kindred with you! I have four young children and get the same stupid comments. My particular peeve is the same as yours: "Oh, don't worry dear, this too shall pass and then you'll have time to yourself"...... ARRRGHH! I don't WANT it to pass. I LIKE IT and am trying hard to savour each moment...just let me through to the bathroom stall, the 5 years old has to pee!
