15 Things You Should Never Say to the Mom of a Large Family

All hail moms of large families. I don’t know how these amazing women manage to run a household and care for so many, but they do and damn if that’s not a beautiful thing.

As someone who can barely manage the two kids she has, I bow down to these supermoms. May your patience and maternal powers wash over my frazzled soul.

It seems only fitting that moms of large families would have amazing hearts and selfless souls, yet the public seems to have different ideas.

I asked moms of four or more kids for the most ridiculously offensive things said to them in public. Oh my, can people suck.
