Your BBQs and parties are not the same since your friends had kids.
Before babies, your parties were filled with a lot of alcohol, inappropriate behavior, and someone inevitably passing out in your flower garden. You could always count on an old high school pal spilling something on your rug and having to rush someone to the hospital emergency room. Those were the good old days.
Now, the majority of your friends are either pregnant or bring along their babies to your party which means you need to buy more apple juice than beer. You call the party for 6pm, purchase a few cases of beer and crank the music up. But a few hours later, only 4 beers have been drank (by your husband) and the music has been turned down because it’s baby Billy’s nap time. The only one drinking is baby Sally, and she’s not drinking alcohol. There are poopie diapers in your trash can, breast milk in your fridge, and your office has been turned into the change room/breastfeeding zone. Your party now resembles a teddy bears picnic rather than an alcohol driven all nighter. Rest assured, most of your guests will be gone by 9pm.
