So, an acquaintance of DH and I (we graduated from a very small high school together, but don't stay in touch with her otherwise), is pregnant with her 5th child at the age of 27.
Last year, when she found out that her 4th was *another* girl, she posted on FB - "Well, it's another girl. Guess we'll be trying again this time next year."
So, fast forward to this year. She recently found out that #5 is a boy.
About a week ago, she posted as her status on FB:
"Thank you to ____ for throwing my shower today. I'm bummed I have such an awesome friend to throw me a shower, but no one to attend it. The people that don't show up don't matter, it's the ones that do."
Uh....people don't want to attend because you've had 5 kids in 8 years and everyone, invited to your shower or not, is "throwing you a shower" by paying into the public assistance program which supports your family.
Side note, I'm not anti-public assistance by any means when it's not abused. However, when you continue to procreate without any means to support your children, that's where I get annoyed.
