Did You Lose Interest In Partying Once You Had Kids?

My sister is 30 years old and she has 3 kids.

A 15 year old, a 13 year old and a 10 year old.

She got divorced 3 years ago and ever since then has spent every single weekend parting.

All weekend long, all she does is party and drink.

Her kids are either with their dad or my brother lives there and he watches them in exchange for not having to pay my sister rent.

I am 28 and I have a niece who is 3 years younger than me. She has a 2 year old and I have a 4 year old. We were talking about my sister and talking about how partying/drinking/bar hopping just wasn't fun anymore once we had kids.

My niece was upset because my sister had told her *Oh if you had a babysitter you know you'd be out doing the same thing as me* (Which is funny because she does have a babysitter anytime she needs one)

My niece is like..Um no. My idea of fun and relaxation is going to a spa, not a bar.

I'm the same way. Sure it's nice to get away from the kids sometimes..but my idea of adult fun is not a bar. It's a spa or maybe a movie or something. I have gone out exactly ONCE in 4 years, when my son was a few months old. It just wasn't fun like it used to be.

Anyone else feel the same?

I lost interest in it probably a year or so before I had kids, lol.

I never had an interest in partying.  I'm a total introvert.

Nope, I lost interest when I got a real job. That was LONG before I became a mother.

YES!  I'm 34.  DH and I met when I was 20.  We done the club scene every weekend when we dated, then it was maybe twice a month after marriage.  Then, we had kids.  

Last year was the first time since having kids (oldest is 9) that we went to a bar.  We went to dinner and were supposed to do a movie.  Well, at the restaurant, his coworker was there and said when they were done they were meeting at this bar to celebrate his birthday.  It was him, his GF, 2 more coworkers and their spouses.  So, we joined them.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it.  But, to think of all the money we wasted in the past!  Damn!  LOL...

We've mentioned doing it again, we'll see.  But no, we definitely don't make a habit out of it.

At this point, my idea of fun is being left the fuck alone.

I was never really into partying. My husband and I do go out for drinks (typically at a bar) roughly a few times every 4 months. Otherwise, we shoot for a date night, or stay home and enjoy the non-threatening silence.
