How to answer the question, “How many kids do you have?”
Seems simple right? You, just list them off.
How do you answer that question when one is missing? They were physically here with you. Laughing, crying, a vital part of your family?
Most of the times it’s strangers who ask. It doesn’t go much further than…what are their ages? Boys or girls?
However, at times these people who ask are neighbors, new acquaintances, etc.
There in lies the uncomfortableness of it all. People either accept you or ignore you after they find out. I haven’t found it to be any different…unfortunately.
