    Congrats! I have one and that's just as much of a crime in many people's eyes. We love it! A happy family is what matters.

    A baby being born that is loved and wanted is a good thing. If anyone doesn't like it, then they can shut up and mind their own business. I can't believe the things friends and relatives will say or ask that are none of their business. I also can't believe the snoopy questions that acquaintances or strangers will ask either, and expect an answer.

    You don't owe any explanation to anyone, and I hope that people back off and realize that.

    Congrats!

    My sister stopped telling my Mom after the 4th because she got tired of the negativity - You're what? Again?. I think my Mom stopped asking after the 8th because it just drove her too crazy. They are currently at 10.

    OK, I'll admit my first thought was, "Wow, 10. How do they keep track of them all?" followed closely by, "Hmmm, it would be nice to have 10 horses, I'd have no trouble keeping track."

    Here's what I would recommend:

    Go to the toy store and buy a toy oven, the kind of thing you'd put in a dollhouse and then make a dough ball with white bread and put it in the oven. Send this to the future grandparents on both sides.
