I'd have to go all smart-butt on people like that and say "Actually we've had a couple of boys but we swapped for these."
Reminds me of the people who, when I was hugely pregnant and also had a 1yo and 2.5yo, would say "Haven't you figured out what causes that yet? Had har har." We learned to say "Well, we've narrowed it down to either sex or water so after this one we are not drinking any more water!"
lol, JenJay, that's hilarious. I love that. I haven't gotten that comment, but I'll have to remember that response in case I do.
It actually reminds me of a story somebody told, I don't remember if it was here or on a homeschool forum (*lots* of big families there). A family had two boys, I think, then several girls, and then a baby or toddler boy. They were at a restaurant, and the two older boys had gone to the restroom, leaving the girls and the littlest boy. A couple stopped by the table and made a comment about how they'd had all those girls and then finally got their boy, so they could be done. Then the two older boys came back from the bathroom, and the older couple's minds were blown.
I do sometimes wonder exactly how far we can take the odds. I mean, sure, every child has roughly a 50/50 chance of being a boy, but there can't be that many families with 6 of one sex, and even fewer with 7, and I'd imagine it's close to unheard of with 8. Even the Weasleys only had, what, 6 boys before Ginny?
