  • i wouldnt say lost friends, but definitely grew apart from alot of people, We are still “friends” but not as close as we use to be, but its usually the ones that dont have kids themselves. but over the years have re kindled with some when they started having babies,

  • Yes. But others are dealing with their own stuff as well. i have found I have lost a lot of friends, when I started dating, got married, had my kids. But the great thing is some of those have come back. It hard because sometimes we look inwardly as well, when we have kids, as we can be as available as we once were and some don’t like that. If you continually try and try and try and get nothing in return, be thankful you had that friendship and move on. Maybe down the track thsoe will become friends again and be available for oyu.

  • Yes, but they come back and go and back again. Friendships can be like that as we grow and change our lives. You will meet new friends through your children and their activities too :)

  • Not sure i would say ‘lost’ but definitely had some friends drift away. Priorities change, how we spend our time changes and our topics of conversation and interests. I had a few close friends that navigated it all with me but a few that just didn’t resonate with my new life.

  • Friends come and go in different stages of life, but my experience is that there always are friends as long as you’re open for it.

  • Yes a few sngle friends dropped off the ege of the earth. But mum friends are the best. So wherever possible attend mothers group or playgroup and enjoy making new mum friends
