NOT ALL of my friends act this way and most are actually pretty understanding. But here goes the story (sorry if it is long) these particular friends of mine have been in my life for around 9 years (can't remember exact) and we were friends in high school. Well after having my daughter they couldn't remember what I named her and had to ask me several times what her name was (ok no big deal I would probably do the same I the situation was reversed) but here is what is really irritating the crap out of me. They seem to always want us to drop things at short notice to "hang out" or "play games" (board games) which is impossible with a 1 year old. They ALWAYS refer to my dd as "the kid" even though they know her name. For instance we were textin shortly after Christmas and they asked how it was I said good and they asked if "the kid" had fun. I replayed "Lexi did have fun she got to see and spend time with all of the family and had a blast showing off" they responed "that's good did the kid get a lot of gifts" I just didn't reply to that one it made me so mad. And the other thing that is bugging the crap out of me is I am currently pregnant (30 weeks) and instead of saying "pregnant" or hell even "prego" I could handle they say I am "knocked up" I don't know why but that irritates the crap out of me! I am NOT "knocked up" damn it I am pregnant!! Ahhh!! Just drives me crazy. So does anyone have these issues wih their childless friends as well?
