I hope this doesn't upset you but no, we aren't planning on coming today. It's absolutely nothing personal but I just do not do kids lol B has to work this evening so he wouldn't be able to come anyway and I've had a really long week and just need to unwind on the only day I'm able to. It's nothing personal against your kids, you know how I am with kids. Another of my friend's kids parties is today and I'm not going to that either. Heck, I'd skip K's if mom wouldn't guilt trip me about it XD I hope it doesn't upset you though because it's really nothing personal.

Time to find a new "best friend"


Preferably, one that fits into your specific lifestyle.

I'd think that she doesn't like kids, doesn't ever want to be anywhere near kids, and is telling you so. I would also think that she was basically throwing the friendship in the trash.

I'd think she doesn't like kids lol.

I wouldn't be offended if I already knew this about her before I had kids.

It would be a lie if I said that it wouldn't hurt. I would be a bit hurt but at the same time I would appreciate her honesty. I would stop inviting her to anything that has to do with my children and she would still be my friend, I would simply adjust my expectations.

Well I would need a bit more back story. Shes being honest. I have friends without kids and I dont blame them for not wanting to hang out with my kids. I do cocktail nights with them and play dates at the park with my mommy friends.

She doesn't have kids and doesn't want to spend her day at a kids' party.

I would say, "Thanks for letting me know.  See you soon!"

If she doesn't want to be there, then why would you want her there?

I see no problem with it. When I had no kids I didn't want to be around any kids either . I wouldn't be mad,
