  • OMG! I dealt with that too... it made me nuts! And my MOH would call me saying she wanted to kill her self.. I am way beyond that in my life.. some of my friends just didn't get it.

  • OHHHH yeah. But, for me, it happened after I got married. Ok, I'll be honest, I was 6 months preggo the day I got married, so it probably had to do with both. lol. I have just recently gotten back in contact with one of my best friends. And that only happened after she got married. So, yeah, I know what you mean.

  • Yeah, it's kind of weird but if your friends do have children, that can draw you closer together. But if you have a friend that doesn't have kids, they don't seem to be around as much anymore. This happened to me too. I guess it's because we have less in common than before.
