What if someone goes and tells a mother shopping in a supermarket with her 7 kids and tells her," my goodness, when are you going to stop? It is much better with 2 and less stressful "

How do you deal with this?

I'd say that I can't stop until I've outbred all the other people.

Then go on my merry way.

Just ignore it, it's really not a big deal.

I tell them that I have a responsibility to ensure that my superior traits are well-supplied in the gene pool.

This.   :laughing:





Altho it is difficult to shop with just a single toddler...I can't imagine shopping with 7 children.  Daddy (or grandma or a neighbor, etc.) needs to babysit.

This to both. I took all 3 of mine grocery shopping and it was a nightmare.

By the time there are seven children the older ones are helping with the younger ones and the parents tend to have developed a lot of organization.  I wouldn't be surprised if it is easier than going with a single toddler.

That said, I avoid shopping with children as much as possible.

I should note my comment is anticipatory. I have no children, I'm not married.
