A while ago I wrote a post about the funny questions we get asked because we are homeschoolers (here). You readers obviously really enjoyed that because that post has been one of my most popular posts ever posted since my blog began!! Anyway, I thought it might be cool to post about some of the funny questions we get asked because we are part of a big family. It's kind of similar to the other one, but still different. :D
"Ten of you? Are you sure?"
(No, actually I can't remember.)
"My aunt/uncle/grandparent/parent/sibling/close relation/distant relation/friend/acquaintance/business partner/workmate had a family with (anywhere from about 5 to about 15) children."
(It's funny how people always come up with someone they know who has a big family, too. :D )
"What sort of vehicle do you drive?"
"Do you fight with each other / Are you well behaved / Do you get along well?"
"Do you all go to different schools?"
(Usually spoken to Mum or Dad) "Can you remember all their ages and birthdays?"
"How old is the oldest / How old is the youngest / What are the names and ages / What is the age gap?"
"Ten! That's so cool. You must have so much fun together."
(Yes, that is quite true. I feel sorry for people in smaller families because I know how awesome a big family is!)
"You must have a maaaaassive house."
"How does your Mum do it?"
(With lots of prayer... )
"What's it like being in a big family?"
(What's it like being in a small family?)
"No, don't bother telling me all their names. I won't be able to remember them."
"Imagine the massive family reunions you're going to have when they're all grown up and married!"
(It's going to be awesome!!!)
"Do you have to share a bedroom?"
"How do you cope with the laundry/dishes/housework?"
(That's what kids are for!!)
"Don't you wish you didn't have so many siblings?"
(Not on your life!)
"Do you have to do chores?"
Are you part of a big family? Do you get asked these sorts of questions?
