Please Don’t Ask if We Kept Trying for the Girl [TODAY PARENTS CONTRIBUTOR]

Having 5 kids (4 boys that are 10, 11, 12, 13 and a 5-year-old daughter), I’ve heard it all.

“Did you actually plan to have the boys that close in age?”

“College is going to suck you dry!”

“Do you ever get a free moment?”

“You’re done, right?” (Insert fear in the person’s eyes that I’m going to say NO.)

Please don't ask if we kept trying for the girl

In all honesty, throughout the years I’ve done my best to brush off these kinds of comments. I get it that 5 kids is not that common for the average American family. Whenever we walk into a restaurant the stares always make me laugh because we must look like a traveling circus. Not only do we have 5 kids, but they all look exactly alike. I mean, EXACTLY alike. It’s something that definitely makes people do a double take. They’re all little carbon copies of each other.

Here’s the thing, I can take a lot of stuff being tossed and asked to me, but the one thing that always makes my blood boil is the question – “Did you just keep trying for a girl?”
