Ive been talking to a few friends i had back in high school recently.. Its been so long i havent talked to them. We talk about what weve been up to and things like that. The few friends ive talked to dont have kids so i dont feel no reason to mention my toddler either. I just dont tell them i have a kid and just talk about other stuff with them. Do you ALWAYS mention your kids or sometimes just dont feel the need to?

I don't think it's a requirement, but if I haven't seen someone in a few years and had since had kids I would mention them as an important part of my life.  That's a prettty big area in terms of what I've been up to.

well , all my friends have kids, and most of theirs are older than mine. i the last one to have kids, so yeah. that's what we talk about, because for like the past decade that's all they have talked about lol.

I tell them. I won't talk a lot about them, but I do say I have them

If course I would tell them I have kids. Seems silly not to. I wouldn't bring them up in every single conversation but I certainly wouldn't leave them out of "what I've been up to."

Oh, I brag on my babies xD mostly because most of my HS friends are in college getting drunk and sleeping around while I got my life in check.

Do I acknowledge that I have children?  Yes.  Do I need to talk about them all the time?  No.
