Talk about the change
With a new little lovebug taking up most of your brain (and your time) it’s no secret that your social life isn’t what it used to be. But your friends without kids might not get that you’re not flaking out on girls’ night on purpose—unless you tell them.
Let your friends without kids know that even though you’ve been out of touch, you miss them and want to make time for them once you’ve gotten used to the rhythms of life with a baby. Tell them about what your day to day is like as a mom—or better yet, invite them over for some baby bonding time. It’ll make them feel included while giving them a first-hand account of how busy you really are.
