Comments when we go out in public

So I thought I would write about all the rude and great things we here when we go out in public. We either feel like a freak show or like celebrities. So here are some of the rude things we get, and the responses we normally give.

*Are they Natural:

Well obviously they are not plastic.

*Did you take fertility pills:

We normally just tell people there spontaneous, But inside i am thinking Why does it matter how they were conceived.

*Are they Twins:

Nope there are 3 of them which would make them Triplets

*Are they all Boys:

I just point to the highly PINK car seat Gracie is sitting In.

I know this doesn't sound like a rude Comment but I get so SICK of hearing You have your hands full. We here it about 100 times when we are out and about. It just gets extremely old. Like we don't already know that we have our hands full.
I normally just say Our hands are full of blessings.

* Are they born on the same day:
or are they the same age:

Triplets normally are.

* Glad its you and not me:

Me To obviously you couldn't handle it.

*I feel sorry for you:

Well don't. I feel sorry that your weren't blessed with such a wonderful thing.

I truly cannot believe the nerve of some people. I am sure there are some I am leaving out but these are the ones that get to us the most.
Now for the positive.

* You are so blessed

* They are all adorable, Cute ETC....

Yep that's about it for the Positive. Its amazing to me that the first thing that comes to peoples mind is always something rude. I guess I just have to tell myself that they don't know any better and that it is always shocking to see triplets.

Here's my going out in public comment for you: How do you go out in public and not punch someone, LOL?

Yep, we get those same comments all the time, although lately I get more "You've got your hands full" or "You must be busy" than anything else. Oh, we also get a lot of "Are they twins?". I just say, no keep counting. Oh, and then I just love it when they add, "which one is the oldest"? I mean really, that's kind of a dumb question. But we've trained our girls on how to respond to that question and they give the order in which they 'came out'.

Hey, I totally agree with you on people's comments. Just tell them you mailordered them. You have to say something that will make them stop and leave them Speechless. It's true, silence is golden! Maybe you could just say that too them. Anyway, you are very, very blessed and I am so proud to know you and as always, they are gorgeous! take care.
