Oh people are weird, we have 3 children all of the same sex, talking about something the other day with someone and they said oh we (as in themself) are so lucky we have one of each, i just looked at them blankly and said oh so you think i'm unlucky to have 3 of the same?? They just went quiet with the look on the face as if ohhhh that was a stupid thing to say

Omg I can't stand it when people say things like that!
We have 2 girls and are pregnant with bub number 3 (gender unknown) and I've had a few "Oh I guess you're trying for a boy?" Or "I hope you get a boy this time" comments.
Why, because my two girls are such disappointments?? Or because they're not boys and therefore don't matter???Drives me crazy!
I swear regardless of what we have if I get any comments like the ones above (or your example) I will not be able to hold back!!!

I would have taken it differently; that they were inferring that a single child doesn't make a 'proper family'. But maybe I'm extra sensitive as I've just found out DS is to be an only child...

I don't get it... What is with people thinking you have to have one of each?!

When I was pregnant everyone kept telling me I had to have a boy (alrwady had a dd) I started asking if I got a cash prize or a medal if I did the "clever" thing of having that magical pigeon pair. I just dont get why I had to have one of each

I am really bad at social chit chat, and could quite possibly have had something like this come out of my mouth in a panicked moment of "OMG what are you supposed to say in situations like this??"
Sometimes something will come out my mouth and sound so stupid I totally cringe, and want to disappear, but it is more nervousness than anything, maybe this comment was just one of those kind of moments for this woman.
Or maybe she has deep feelings about 'proper families' containing more than one child, or a pigeon pair.
I guess you will never know, unless you ask her directly!!!

It's so odd! What on earth did she mean?
Some people are so strange with their strange ideas about stuff. I don't know how these people get through daily life being so narrow and skewed in their thinking.
