dont want sympathy but dont want the condescention either

my dh and i dont have kids. we have had issues with infertility and early term miscarriages. we dont talk about it because it is personal and we dont want sympathy. however we would like my relatives to stop acting like condescneding asses about it to us. they have kids but they get antsy when offer to babysit the little nieces/nephews or think we cant get them to nap. we are of course not experts but we are able to do it. i was almost 15 when my youngest sister was born and i did plenty of babysitting . i dont know a good response when they say "well, you dont have kids". my dh gets so pissed he just walks away and when they ask me about it i do not know how to respond without getting emotional or simply cussing them out.
