When I first announced I was pregnant SO many of my friends were uber excited and couldn't wait. "I'm going to spoil that baby rotten", many of them said. Want to know how many I still talk to?? Hm, maybe 5. There are those friends that are still "facebook friends", but are they really friends? Will they really help you out when needed? I highly doubt it.
I've said so many times it makes me sad how I've lost touch with so many of them. 2 of them being my bridesmaids in my wedding. I understand we all are on different wave lengths in our lives, but that doesn't mean you can't stop by for 2 minutes to actually meet Rylee. I'm not asking for them to slit their wrists and give me blood.
Just stop by. Say hey.
I've come to realize that your 'friends' that say they're friends really aren't- at least most of them aren't. When you become a mom you get many new friends. You don't think your friends are going to be that way? Think again. I'm pretty positive 95% of new mamas go through this. You lose some, you gain some.
I'm so lucky to have the people that I do in my life. They are my true friends. For those of you who haven't even met Rylee..screw you. She's almost 9 months old. Of course as soon as you have the baby everyone rushes over to meet them, but that's it. Hell- most of my friends didn't even do that.
I love, love, love my friends that have stuck around and showed me they really are here to stay. I've gained some awesome mama friends and I'm glad I have women I can relate to- instead of going out and partying 24/7. I'm a mama now. I'm grown. I'm mature. I don't need drama nor do I want it. I'm happy with my drama free life.
With that being said- be prepared to lose friends when you become a mama, but also be prepared to gain some amazing friendships as well.
