Oh I agree. My friends with kids love me for me too. I have several friendships that have more than survived my choice not to have kids, buy a dozen years or more.
However, I still think that they believe I simply can not relate to their lives as Mommies. That the opinion of any childless woman relating to child issues is invalidated.
No bearing on understanding the time kids require, but an underlying assumption that those without kids can not truly understand those with kids.
Which may be true LOL :shame:
But I wonder if any of the many mothers that have commented about maintaining childess friendships can relate to that at any level???
In other words, to be really blunt:
do those of you with kids believe that those of us without can not understand *you* anymore???
No. I don't believe that. Human emotions and passions are the same whether you are a mom or not. Other mothers might disagree with me on that and I would be interested to hear other points of view.
