Tiny Vent

I try to be a positive person.  I just have get something off my chest that is really starting to bug me.   First I want to say that it's not so much the questions themselves that people have been asking that bug me as much as the responses that frustrate me.
Question #1-  "Are you going to have anymore children?"  Okay once again it's not the question that bothers me. It's a pretty common question to ask. It's when I respond with "No not at this time" and instead of receiving positive or supportive comments I get the following statements.
-- Oh why not?
-- Oh you can't just have one.
-- Oh you better get busy.
Question #2- "So what are you going to do when Brady goes to school?"  A basic question, that I don't mind answering and probably one I might ask a fellow stay at home mom myself.   However I would never make a mom feel guilty for stating that she was going to continue to stay home.  I would never shame a mom for choosing to go to work either.  My newest response is to just say "Oh I have a huge list of stuff."  This is the complete truth.  I do have a ton of things that I would like to accomplish.  I would also like to volunteer at Brady's school as much as possible and I will continue with my home business.  

 If you have read this whole post than I thank you for listening. As I mentioned at the top of this post, I try to be a positive person.  I also try not let others get me down but sometimes a person just needs to clear the air.
