I might just smack the next stranger who says, with pity, that I have my hands full! or "are they all yours?" or "do you know what causes that?" So in honor of all those people I've compiled a list of comebacks. And one day, I may just use one of the funny ones instead of the nice replies.
1. You have your hands full
*If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.
*Yes we know what causes it....and we love doing it.
*My hands are full but my wallet is empty. Can you spare a five?
*Don't say anything, just look puzzled at your hands. (This does obviously not work if you are carrying a baby :-)
*Yes, but I would rather have my hands full than empty!
2. Are they all yours?
*No, I like to gather up all the neighbors' kids and then go shopping
*HEHE!No, actually two are the mailman's and I am not sure whose is that one.....
*No, I picked up a couple extra in the produce aisle.
*Gee, I never heard that question before!
*Yes, and they're such good kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (the kids love that one!)
*I don't know. How many do you count?
*Yes. But if you have any you don't want, I'll gladly take them, too .
*No. I've been an avid collector for years and just picked these up in the food court!
*Yes, we just enjoy sex soooooo much!
*Yes, I always want just one more.
3. Don't you know what causes that?
*No, please tell me!
*Of course, don't you?
*Yes, we do know what causes that and we like it very much, thank you.
*Oh yes, we finally figured it out and we now keep the tooth brushes in seperate glasses!
*Oh yes, I now wash my husband's underwear seperately.
*Water or sex but I don't want to give up either.
4. Don't you have a television?
*Yes, but we only get X-rated channels
*Yes! Did you know there are 28 porn channels in this area?
*No, we have much better things to do at night!
Really? I only have 4 kids. That doesn't really seem like a lot. But obviously it is, because I can't go anywhere where people don't comment about it or look at me like some freak of nature.
Ok. I'm done venting now. Thanks to all the large families who've come up with those comebacks. That list cracks me up.
