Having a child can change the dynamics of friendships, especially when your friends don't have kids. In this post, a woman shares her frustration with her best friend who seems to be distancing herself since the birth of her child. Despite numerous invitations to come over, the friend keeps suggesting they go out for drinks, which the mother cannot do as she is a stay-at-home mom. After the friend ditched her to go out with others, the mother snapped and accused her of being an awful friend. The friend retorted that she doesn't want to spend time with her when there's always a kid around. The argument escalated, and the friend suggested the mother's partner could take care of the child once in a while so she could have a break. The mother kicked her out, and now she wonders if she overreacted or if her friend was being insensitive. Do you think her friend should have made more of an effort to visit her at home? Or was the mother too harsh in her reaction? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
