I love your layouts...and never thought I'd say anything here...but as a Mom of 5--the last 4 about 1 year or 2 apart, I know how aggravating it can be to have people "stare" or even get downright rude about the choice to have a large family. All I can say is that there will always be people out there that think large families are "old" concepts and that "we" are selfish for forcing our children to learn to share (bedrooms, hand-me-downs, our time and attention, etc). As long as YOU know you are doing your best and you are happy about it, it's best to let things slide. I just point out to my kids--when we get rude comments--that those types of remarks are why I enforce being polite. It usually makes my point--that it's not their business--clear.
