Ha! I could've echoed every word of your post but this opening line cracked me up. So, so true. People think they are so clever parroting the same responses every checker, clerk, hostess, stranger gives us.

Interestingly, when we lived in two different countries overseas, the comments we got were almost always, "wow! Looking at your family reminds me of my family growing up. Too many people now are having only one or two kids. You have a beautiful family." It definitely echoes what you said about modern American priorities.
