Did you PLAN that?!

Mom of six Jenny Evans was in the grocery store the other day with her one-year-old and her five-year-old, when the guy in front of her turned around and said, "Wow, you're busy."

If he only knew. So Evans laughed and politely explained that she actually had four more kiddos at home. And the dude responded in the most bizarre way.

"He kinda looked and me and said, 'Oh, I'm sorry," Evans explained.

Wait, what? That's just super rude and awkward. And apparently, it's not just Grocery Store Guy who's offering up the unsolicited commentary. According to Evans—who writes about parenting at Unremarkable Files—the comments about the size of her fam never stop coming. Which is why the hilarious mama decided to put together a video of responses to have at the ready for zingers like "Are they ALL yours?", "Was that PLANNED?" and "That's just like having six cats!"

Spoiler alert: It's nothing like having six cats.

"My family is big and its chaotic and it's loud," she explains in the clip. "Oh my gosh we are SO loud. But it's everything I could ever want. And it would be nice if people got that."

So go ahead and share this with another mama who's blessed to have a big family.

As the mom of 8, I hear you! Not only did I get all those comments you mentioned over and over again through the years, my husband would often get asked “They’re all yours? How many women? Only ONE mother!!???!!” You just have to laugh at people’s rudeness and stupidity. We both know how blessed we are and wouldn’t have it any other way! The best part is now I have dividends—14 grandchildren, ages 17 down to 8 months! I’m one lucky lady! ❤️
