What do you do when you hang out with your friends that are single or have no kids?

The partying question got me thinking. I'll go for an evening with my single/no kids friends to a bar or out to eat without the kids. It's important to me to still be friends with them (we've been friends for a long time), because well we're still friends! I know that they would probably have fun getting coffee or whatnot, but a little kid playdate would be really boring to them.

idk I really love my friends. I like to think that life is about balance and that you don't have to give up your good friends when you get married and have kids. Plus for me it's really healthy to get away for awhile, I'm sure some of you know what I mean!

  • We go out for meals with friends with no children, and we go on vacations with another couple who have no children. It is just like we do with couples that have children, they are our friends, and we talk and joke and do things together.

  • My "friends" gave up on me. They dont bother to call or ask me to hang out, since im a single mom with two kids- they pretty much assumed that I never have the time. Oh well. ;)
