Why is it...

that people with kids are more interesting than those of us without?

Perhaps I just have too many people with kids or definitely more people with kids than people without kids. Or maybe I am just in contact with the kids people more... I don't know.

I do feel like once we have a kid around that people will want to talk to us more, be more interested in what's going on in our lives, be more interested in hanging out, want to talk on the phone more, perhaps even skype because there will be this interesting little person on the other end. Gosh I feel boring.

I think the reason I like shows like Friends, Seinfeld, and How I met your Mother is that they are people like me and Paul... Just living their lives, no quirky family moments... doing that single person or married without kids thing. I feel like we are on an island or something... we are married without kids. We have married with kids friends and single friends... where do we fit in all of that? We have some great friends, I don't want any of them to think that we don't love hanging out with them and stuff and boy do they have some cute kids. It's just an odd place to be in life.

Well I guess just in an odd mood. I am going to bed in 7 minutes, need more sleep cause I just haven't gotten enough in the last few days. It's making me grumpy, irritable and sullen. So... enough of that.

Side Note- I need a library card. And I want a lot of board games!

I've wondered this too. My guess is that the kids change. We don't, so much. Kids learn new words. You need to keep seeing pictures of the kids because they grow and look different. Their memories are short, so you need to stay in contact with them to maintain a relationship, whereas I remember my mom and we have a shared history, even if we don't see each other for a year.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm feeling that people must find me pretty boring now too, on the other side of raising kids.

I was just thinking that maybe the more people you have to talk about, whether it's you, kids, parents, cousins, friends, or whatever, means you talk more.
And here I was thinking on the fact that you do so much, way more hobbies than I've ever felt pulled to pursue (yeah, sometimes I'm just lazy).

Go for that library card, it won't get you games but it will get you books.
