Did starting a new family throw off your groove?

Idk...For some reason when i got married and had a baby, i expected that my friends and family would talk to me more than they do. I was just wondering if anyone else lost touch with friends or family because they started a new family and didn't feel like they had time or their friends/family didn't have time for them?

  • I only have like 2 friends from before my kids were born and they both live a good distance away now. Its sad to loose people close to you, but look what your getting in exchange =D

  • That's a very good point, come to think of it, my friends from before, when we do talk, all they talk about is parties etc. and i love to talk about my family! I actually think i've had more fun with my family than i've ever had with my friends (yeah, it's a different type of fun but who cares?!?!) Thanks!

  • I haven't lost my friends b/c they all had kids before me, but my little sisters are around a lot less. My baby sister actually came out and said she can't handle the crying. I think I may have turned her of babies all together. My DD doesn't cry much, but when she does it is loud and proud. My baby sister has decided she wants to adopt a child between the ages 3-7. No problem with that in my book, but I do miss her coming over like she did.

  • yes i know exactly what u mean, i thought my famly was still going to be close to me after i had my son but not at all, now they hardly talk to me and especially my hubbys family they never even call to see how our son is doing at all, and back then when i was still prego i remember my m.i.l saying she cant wait to spoil my son and it was all a bunch of bullshit because we dont even hear from that biatch! so i learned never to believe any of them and just be happy with my hubby and son and all those that dont talk to us anymore can go to hell!

  • I agree, my friends don't call like they use too or come to see me. I guess I'm all washed up. As far as my family we live in different states so that another story but I wasn't close to them that much except for my immediate family. I also miss my lil sis. we used to talk, hang out and just have a good laughin feast! She acts as if Im 80 or something now, she loves her niece but the crying and how she is no longer the baby in the family drives here crazy. Sometimes I do miss the times where everyone was in one place sharing funny stories....LOl But, I realize it time for me to create these memories for my daughter, prayfully her childhood and life memories be better than mine.
