I don’t know about you, but I find some of the things my single friends say to me very…. annoying! It’s kind of impressive that I still have single friends to start with, I mean – since becoming a mom I’ve hardly been the ‘party animal’ I used to be. (Don’t laugh! I used to be wild back in the day, I swear.) But that does not mean I don’t enjoy hanging out with my friends who are still living it up, single, free, and with NO KIDS!
HOWEVER, every time I meet up with my fabulous friends, they always seem to say the exact thing no parent ever wants to hear. “You look tired”, “I haven’t seen you in ages, what have you been doing in the past three years”?
I’ve been having kids and basically slowly losing my mind, how’s your life going? Ha!
So that’s why I’ve made this short video, because I think my single friends need to know that some of the things they say to parents can be really annoying.
I do hope I still have single friends after they watch this! Enjoy…
