How to Get Your Friends with Kids to Hang Out With You

DON'T: Take it Personally
Allison Robicelli: "It's not that [parents] hate you and love their kid more. But until you have a kid, you have no idea the magnitude of the responsibility it is. More than that, you have to realize that having a kid means that you now come second in your own life—the things that you liked to do in your non-parenting days, like seeing your friends, having hobbies, or even showering, go on the backburner to the needs of your kid for a good long while. They do come back, I swear—but for the first couple of years you are often at the mercy of the child. For me it got depressing being invited to things, because I knew I couldn't possibly attend. As much as you're bummed your friend can't come, they're more bummed that they're sitting at home—probably cleaning something—while all their friends are out having fun." [photo]
