From what I have heard, these feelings are shared by most mothers.

Yep, apparently if you can't drop everything and party all night long you aren't worth befriending.

Plus- I wonder if childless couples or singles feel that Mom's somehow look down on them for their carefree lifestyle.

Fiery Ewok said...

Ummm wow. So this is what Pmomma and Sean deleted off their blogs. Yikes. no wonder

I'd have to go with spam, personally. Espeically since I've yet to see him repost a reply to their deletions.

Wonder if I'll be spammed next. Or Poodles Rule. BixTex.

It'll be interesting to see this one play out.

Yeah, I've been wondering what the heck this has to do with mothers? I'm deleting it...seems like spam to me too...

What I don't get is how vest thought that would encourage anyone to read his blog.

It was L-O-N-G and not all that interesting. I couldn't get past the first paragraph before I started scrolling down. Kept scrolling. More scrolling. Good grief I'm still scrolling!!!!

Give a sound bite. Tease 'em. Leave 'em wanting more.

And for heaven's sake make the effort to find an even remotely relevent post to leave it on. WEIRD!!!!

As a mom, I can say with honesty that I don't look down on anyone who is childless or single. Sometimes I wish I was both! lol ;)

But the point is that I don't have to be childless or single to be intriguing and loads of fun. I can still party all night long if I want to for instance, it just takes a little more creativity schedule wise to be able to do so.

Fiery Ewok said...

I agree, if anything I am jealous of the childless and single people. Because of the way we've chosen to arrange our life and the fact I've never been a night owl, I really can't party very late. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy hanging out though.

At least I found bloggerland. Plenty of friendly people in bloggerland. :-D

My wife and I are childless. We don't go out and party - partying has never been big for me I much prefer sitting around and getting mildly drunk and sorting out the worlds problems in an evening.

Did try pot through college but always got a migrane afterward.

Anyway I digress. Quality friends will find you and stick with you. You just have prevent yourself going insane in the meantime.

Fiery Ewok said...

I've never been to a bar and gotten smashed. I've gone to restaurants and got lit with a Long Island tea, but it is always 1 on 1 visiting with someone over a drink.

I would rather talk and that precludes loud music and lots of strangers.

Yep, I'm a nerd.

Sean the Blogonaut F.C.D. said...

I enjoy the company of other intelligent individuals whther they be mothers, fathers. A good chat beats getting ratfaced at a bar anytime (though there was that time I went to bed with a supermodel and woke up with a biker?).

Getting ratfaced and talking is good too though.

Fiery Ewok said...

a biker dude? or a biker chick?

*snort* you're not supposed to ACTUALLy eat the worm in the tequilla Sean

My husband and I don't have children, we do have friends with kids who we hang out with and enjoy time with. But I must say I think the dynamic is somewhat different than being with other childless friends. Planning something with people with friends usually requires planning for sitters, but that doesn't make it impossible. You are lucky in that your spouse is around a lot.

Just think of it as their loss not yours if they don't want to be friends because of kids.
