What did she just say ?!?! This mum has had enough. “It’s not okay to make someone feel like the amount of children they have is wrong or right. It’s actually no ones goddamn business.”

Krechelle from Eight at home wants you all to know once and for all, “Yes I have six kids under the age of six- and yes they are all from the same man; thanks so much for asking.”

Krechelle admits, “Having six children this young is a struggle! We struggle to get to the shops, we struggle out to dinner, with school runs and keeping the house clean; but, I mean, doesn’t everybody?”

But you know what the biggest struggle is?  Other people’s unwanted opinions.

Krechelle says, “I’ve tried to not let it get to me,  I’ve tried to ignore it and smile and keep walking but I’ve found the only way to deal with constant negative comments is to give them what they really want to hear.”

So here’s a few tips and tricks on how to answer the typical questions 

Let Krechelle set the scene for you:

“The husband and I are waiting for the shops to open with one trolley containing two kids, one pram with two kids and two running around in circles.

A smug lady in her forties comes over;
“They are not all yours are they?!?!” She says with a smug disapproving look.

“Yep, sure are; born and bred from my uterus; surprisingly enough my pelvic floor is still fantastic – isn’t it babe (I look at Dave with a wink )”

“Do they all have the same father???!”

“Well we haven’t had them genetically tested but we’re fairly certain the first four are this guys (gestures to Dave)”

“Do you own a TV?”

“Actually we own three; however who would pass up mind blowing sex for tv; are you nuts ? ”

Is this man your husband?

“No actually my husband’s at home, he deserves a rest- this is my lover- Fernando”

Your not having anymore are you?

“I mean my husband has had a vasectomy if that’s what your asking but Fernando, my lover, has not so I guess we’re just throwing it to the wind”

I could go on.

But you get my gist.

It’s not okay to make someone feel like the amount of children they have is wrong or right. It’s actually no ones goddam business. Whether you have zero children or ten children. If they are happy and healthy and loved!!

We should all be supportive of one another.

  • Good for you. People seem to think it’s okay to comment when it’s none of their business.


  • That’s a lot of kids! Imagine the wear and tear on mums bod? I have 6 siblings. 2 have same mum and dad as me, 3 we share a dad and 1 we share a mum


  • I come from a family of 7 and yes same mum and dad and all the rest.


  • Just got comments from the check out girl a couple of days ago…. “thats a lot of kids…. I’m in childcare, all thats alot of kids”. I have 5 beautiful daughters ranging from 10 to 8 weeks. Wish i had her guts.


  • I love her responses,good on her!


  • Keep negativity out!


  • People really don’t think before they talk. You have a very happy family.


  • Gosh people are so judgy… focus on your own lives!


  • Not a choice I would make. Also not the largest family I have seen on here. Mum having her 21st pregnancy….now that’s ott


  • love her sense of humour – no one has the right to question another person about their kids etc – everyone has to know everyone else’s business and it’s just not on!


  • Glad she can keep her humor up !


  • There are a lot of people out there who think they have the right to judge everyone.If that couple can handle 6 kids all I can say is good on them!that takes tones of energy and patience.They all look happy in that photo.


  • I think more than 4 is a lot to handle for me but I definitely ain’t going to say it to a mums face. A mum can have as many as she wants and shouldn’t be judged for it and given rude remarks. Can’t people just keep their opinions to themselves.


  • Whether you have 1 or 10 someone is bound to stick their nose in where it does not belong.


  • Why do people think they have the right to comment on others . Just rude. Good on Mum for retorting back It’s her life.


  • People are so rude, couldn’t agree more if you’re happy people should just be happy for you.


  • meh, people just don’t have tact when they have curiosity lol


  • Love this woman’s attitude! Such a funny response to other people’s judgement, it had me smiling over her well delivered answers.


  • My Great Grandma was one of 13 children and my Grandma was one of 10.


  • I would not even think of commenting on the size of someone’s family or even validate or respond to anyone commenting on it as quite frankly it is no one else’s business. Focussed on my own family and not concerned about judging anyone else’s family.
