FML - The follow-up

Today, my mom announced to everyone that she wants at least ten grandchildren. I'm an only child. FML

juice723 Say more :
So yeah I've seen some comments asking for a follow up... I'm a girl. my mom has always said that her greatest regret was not having more children herself, but she's, you know, going through menopause... So I think wanting a lot of grandchildren is her way of making up for that. She has also clarified that she will be happy with four grandchildren, which is what I want to have. It was just wishful thinking that she could have that many grandchildren to help raise. Sorry if this long comment is

Technology and science advances, these days, make it possible for nearly anyone to have a baby. OP's mom can still have more kids. She just has to stick around long enough to make sure they have kids too.

Not trying to ruin the fun but it should be up to OP how many kids OP wants to have. On a more relaxed note, I can see OP's mom saying what she did as a joke. A follow up would certainly be great in this one :)

i think op is a female. a male with a lot of kids tends to make people think about all of the sex he has. a female with a lot of kids... well, i applaud someone like that because thats a lot of labor pains :/ but unless they post we'll never know!

#35 It's more likely a person is born with the right set of genitals. And I don't think the mother would have mentioned willing to get so many grandchildren if the OP is transgender. I don't know a lot of transmen willing to get pregnant anyway, including myself.

I'm not transgender so forgive me if I'm wrong but I don't think that most trans men would want to get pregnant. I can imagine that pregnancy could cause them severe dysphoria

#106 I'd assume that the numbers correspond with a word or a phrase to make them easier to remember; or it could be just the motions to remember. My password is super long so I don't remember the actual numbers, just the motions I go through to type the numbers.

Then she should have been the one to have 10 kids. Or she should have had at least four or five so that each child could have a realistic amount of kids (and that's even if all her kids wanted to have their own)

True, but it was also not uncommon for only 2 or 3 of them to survive to adulthood. The large families were insurance against high child mortality. Having said that, my Mum was the youngest of 7.

im countries where polygamy is practiced people in such relationships often end up having ridiculous amounts of kids. Hell, the South African president has 3 wives at the moment, two he used to be married to and 22 kids. Although at least in those cases, it's more than one woman pushing out all those babies. I can't imagine a lot of women being crazy enough to plan on pushing out 10.
