Just for fun

I am pregnant with my fourth child. This will be my fourth kid in 4 years. The other ones are ages 4,3, and 18 months. There is almost exactly 18 months between each kid. Whenever I'm out in public with all the kids, a stranger will almost always say something like "You know what causes you to keep getting pregnant right?"

I always thinks its kind of rude, especially since all of our kids were conceived using different forms of birth control.

If you could say anything at all to these people what would you say?

My favorite so far is from my sister. "Well, in sex ed they always taught us to put a condom on a banana before sex. I keep a bunch of bananas in my room and put condoms on them every time, but doesn't seem to help..."

When someone says "You know what causes you to keep getting pregnant right?" what are they driving at?  Surely they don't intend for you to say in public with the kids, "I've heard that it is sex."

tell them its the attention you get from RUDE people, that makes you keep having babies.

I think its their way of trying to be funny and suggest that I don't realize having sex gets me pregnant. I usually ignore it, but its really starting to bother my husband

I shared this with my husband, who says he gates people like that and would tell them to f*** off. Personally, I love the banana one. I tell people that my husband is a superhero, and his power is super sperm.

Hey 4in4 this is my fourth on too and my kids are evenly spaced about 2 1/2 yrs. I have an 8 yr old, a 5 going on 6yr old and a 2 going on 3 yr old. I also am very familiar with that "You know what causes that right?" line. The only effective way Ive been able to get people to shut up is either 1. Be stupid: "I have no idea but it keeps happening every 2 years!" or 2. Be a smartass: "Yeah, my Dr said to stop drinking water theres something contaminating it."

Yeah, you could just smile broadly and raise your eyes to heaven and say "Yes, indeed!" as though you are remembering sexual transports that those poor suckers will never know.
