BEING a mum-of-six kids under the age of seven must be tough enough, without worrying about what total strangers think of your brood.
Now mummy blogger Krechelle Carter has revealed the rude comments people make on a near daily basis - including asking if her kids all have the same dad.
The 28-year-old, from Adelaide, Australia, has written an open letter on Instagram to all the rude people who stop and make comments in the supermarket and the street - and it's very eye-opening.
"They are not all yours, are they?" one "smug woman" asked the mum, who quipped back: "Yep, sure are; born and bred from my uterus; surprisingly enough my pelvic floor is still fantastic."
While others have asked: "Do they all have the same father?" - one of Krechelle's most hated questions, but one she still likes to meet with a lighthearted answer.
Pointing to her partner Dave, she once replied: "Well we haven't had them genetically tested but we're fairly certain the first four are this guy's".
Sometimes strangers ask weirdly personal things like "do you own a TV?"
"Actually, we own three," the mum replied. "However, who would pass up mind-blowing sex for TV. Are you nuts?"
On a more serious note, Krechelle moaned: "I never really think of us as a huge family.... despite the fact that when I go to the shops with four in the trolley and two at my hips; people stare like I’m stark naked...
"I kind of don’t get the big deal. We’re not a side show attraction. We’re not in a cage at the zoo. I’m legitimately just trying to get my shopping done as quickly as possible.
"I may have a couple more children than most people but does that give people the right to stop me in the shops to stare at me ?!
"But I guess to be honest you never really get used to that.
"You never really get used to the 'Oh you’ve got your hands full', or the 'wow got more than you bargained for'.
"People legitimately grabbing my arm & stopping me in the shops to stare. And then go on with their day unaware that there making me feel super uncomfortable."
Krechelle previously slammed "judgey" strangers who "shame" her for telling her kids off in public.
