This mother-of-six deals with unwanted comments in the best way

Krechelle Carter has enough on her plate with six children under seven.

However, her day-to-day life with the kids is nothing compared to fielding unnecessary comments from perfect strangers.

The 28-year-old has opened up in a raw post on her blog, Eight At Home, about some of the “observations” strangers make.

It’s not okay to make someone feel like the amount of children they have is wrong or right,’ she wrote. 

“It’s actually no one’s goddamn business whether you have zero children or ten children if they are happy and healthy and loved!!”


Krechelle has had to justify how many kids, whose kids they belonged to and if they all had the same father.

“Yep, sure are; born and bred from my uterus; surprisingly enough my pelvic floor is still fantastic,” she found herself responding.

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

And our personal favourite response after she was asked if the family had a TV:

“Actually, we own three,” she said. “However, who would pass up mind-blowing sex for TV? Are you nuts?”

While her responses are light-hearted, she did say that having six children quite young can be difficult.

“We struggle to get to the shops, we struggle to go out to dinner, with school runs and keeping the house clean,” she said.

You’re a super woman, Krechelle!
