When Your Friends Don’t Have Children –
A woman recently posted an open letter on parentsconnect.com urging her childless friends to understand that she can no longer live the life of a fun, single, kidless gal.
Some of the offenses she named are listed after the jump —
- • Friends demanding she go out drinking all night to the point where she’s got a hangover when she’s caring for her kids in the morning.
- Friends who call to complain about how tired they are or how messy their house is when they haven’t been all night with crying babies.
- People who don’t want to give her kids attention when they come to her house. The kids aren’t pets. They require constant care and supervision.
Just Asking — If you’re a mom, what’s the worst offense a friend has ever committed by not understanding your new role as a parent? Do you take time out to hang with friends anymore — or are those days over?
