Ok, so I'm friends with this girl, but we're not close or anything. We keep in touch on Facebook and occasionally get together. She has one 6 month old son and is a sahm. Now...her parents watch her baby from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon EVERY week. They also watch her all day on Mondays and Wednesdays. Whatever, none of my business, but...
she is constantly complaining about how hard it is and how she needs "me" time to me. I'm a sahm and I'm with my son 24/7. I'm getting sick of hearing the whining, then seeing pics of her partying every weekend on Facebook.
What would YOU say to her when she complains? Because I'm becoming more and more tempted to say something not so sweet, lol.

I would not say anything. You were right the first time, it is none of your concern. This is obviously someone you call up or she calls you - but you accept the invitation. If it is to the point where you really just are not interested in continuing a relationship because you find it really annoying....then don't continue it. Gracefully tell her that you just don't have a lot of Mommy or Me time right now. You don't have to cut her out completely. But you can just call when looking for a fun night out without your child. This way, even if its just once a month, you ARE getting that Me time you need and can have a rule: NO baby or parent talk. This way you eliminate the thing you find most frustrating about her. Or if you continue to really enjoy her company - you ignore the talk. Change the subject. Just nod and move on.
