Sad fact

Hi ladies,

At my Dentist office today (lol, yes my BIG outing) one the gals said that Moms typically just talk about their children and friends that are single or married with no children get uncomfortable and THATS why they distance themselves. OK, with that being said I can KIND of understand, but then I think "well that's just rude". When I was single and newly married I spent time with my friends that were married and had kids, it never occurred to me to stop hanging out with them.

Prior to her comment I had stated that I was making new friends with other Moms so I wouldn't feel so lonely.

    It's sad, but I think it's true. I don't think most women intentionally stop talking to their friends once they have babies - it's just that you are in SUCH a different spot once you have a child. I know my best friend is still single. We are still very close, but we don't talk as often as we used to. She is still at a point in her life where she's still drinking and going out on the weekends to have fun, whereas I can't tell you the last time I did that. My focus is on the kids and their enjoyment while hers is still on herself (which is fine and natural). We just don't have as many topics that we can relate to each other on, and seeing each other is difficult since I have obligations with the kids.

      That is sad, but I can see how it happened even in my own life. Friends with no children or who are struggling to conceive and single friends we do not talk or keep in touch like we once did. I can't help it if I have children and lots of them, you know? But I can see how those struggling to conceive might struggle with that fact.
