I have a group of 6 college friends that I keep in close touch with (15 years post-graduation). I live in FL and the rest live in NY/NJ and Boston, so I don't see tham all that much.
Only one out of the group has kids - well 2 considering they are married to each other. On Monday, she sent an e-mail to the group saying that around Thanksgiving she and her hubby will be having baby number FOUR! The way she worded her e-mail made it clear that this baby was unplanned.
It does not seem like anyone has replied to her yet, unless they didn't hit "reply all". Frankly, I'm grossed out. Four children is environmentally and financially irresponsible - especially for them, as she has said many times the only way they are making it is because they live rent free in the other side of her parents' 2-family house.
BF suggested I email saying, "Congratulations. Just curious, why so many?". I'm not happy for her and I don't know if I can even say congratulations.
Any suggestions for a response? I feel kind of bad that I have not responded to her mail.
