I Finally Heard a New One

Everyone who has more than a couple kids, especially if they are all little, has heard the comments:

"Are they all yours?"

"Wow, you must have your hands full!"

"Better you than me!"

"Do you have twins?"

"Are they triplets?"

"Oh, you have a boy and a girl now, you must be done."

The other day, I came out of Walgreens with all four kids (4, 2, 2, and 13 mo) and was busily trying to get everyone into the car and buckled in their seats. As I was working away, I heard someone chuckle and say something. I looked up and a few parking spots away an elderly couple were next to their car and the man was looking at us and he repeated, "Is it in the water?" I looked at him blankly and he laughed and said, "There's something in the water. You don't need any more." I guess he thought he was being funny. I didn't know what to say at the time so we just left. Anybody heard that one before?

My wife, Sarah, and I have a boy and girl (almost 3 and almost 1). We have gotten, "oh, you have a boy and a girl now, you must be done." I respond by saying we would like at least 4. The expressions are priceless.

It is rare for me to go somewhere with the kids and not get a comment or two, or ten! Just you wait!
