My husband just told me about his theory on why we don't have many friends:
"It's because we have kids. Don't you know that today's generation doesn't want kids and they won't be making hybrids for families because having kids is just uncool. And that is why we are uncool and won't have a mini-van hybrid to look forward to and that is why we don't have any friends!"
Of course I laughed so hard I almost pee'd my pants. Seriously, I have no friends because I am uncool BECAUSE of my kids? Well, I do have some friends, just none who live close to me.
He also started ranting about "over population" and how we are making enemies everywhere because we are planning on baby number 4 and those people will put us on their hit lists with all the "other mormons who can't keep their legs crossed."
Of course he was just joking as we were watching some show on PBS about global warming, unclean water, the need for non-gas cars and so on.
So what is your take on kids? Are they uncool or cool? Did you lose your friends because you "got knocked up"?
I didn't lose any friends when I got preggers but I do find it harder to go out to a movie and dinner at a nice restaurant because it would cost waaaay too much to take everyone, so instead I wait for it to come out on DVD and make it a special night with popcorn and other fun foods to snack on. It's more cost effective that way. Ya know with the "recession" and all.
