I am so deliriously, happily child-free, that I've become kind of militant. The one time I got a comment like that I was so burned that I now preempt their condescension with my own. When some bitch starts telling me "Well, I'm a mom..." or "I have X number of kids" I say "Oh, I'm so sorry!" and when they inevitably stiffen and say, accusingly, "Why?" I look surprised and say "Oh, you wanted kids! Oh. Well that's great then, that's just great! Really!" but sounding very insincere. Funny, I NEVER get that from men. I mean, I've done the "Oh, I'm sorry" when they tell me they have kids, but their reactions only run the gamut of "Yeah." to "It's not so bad."
