This woman wrote to the internet after she admitted that her friend’s baby was the reason that she was getting excluded from the friend group’s plans – was she being too harsh?
She Explained the Situation
The woman shared that she has a friend group who are all in their 20s and spend a lot of time together. One of her friends has a six-month-old baby, and the rest of the group has no kids.
The Baby Affected Their Friend Group
The woman wanted to continue to include her friend in their group plans. However, her new child changed their situation because her friend wanted to bring the baby everywhere she went.
Hanging out Without the Friend
The woman stated that they couldn’t do the things that they wanted to do because of the baby. She adds, “We shouldn’t be loud cause baby needs to sleep. Icing on the cake is that her baby is extremely fussy and cries all the time. It was just a downer for the rest of us.”
The Group Went on A Staycation
The woman explained, “Last weekend all of us went on a staycation. We had a great time and posted photos and videos on Instagram”. The friend saw the online posts and felt left out.
Her Friend Confronted Her
The woman’s friend asked why she wasn’t invited on the trip, and she tried to spare her friend’s feelings, telling her that it was a last-minute plan and that it was a child-free resort. Her friend called her bluff and asked her to tell her the real reason.
She Didn’t Want to Hang out With Her Friend’s Baby
After her friend kept pressing her, she told her that the baby was the reason that she wasn’t invited. Her friend was shocked and confused that she would have such a problem with the baby.
She Revealed the Harsh Truth
Her friend continued to ask for an explanation and the woman revealed the truth. She said, “We don’t want to live our life around a baby she chose to have, and that we get to do adult stuff and party all we want. Her baby is the only reason she wasn’t invited”.
Excluded for Being a Mom
Her friend was angry and confronted her friendship group, expressing that she was disappointed and upset that they would exclude her just for being a mom.
The Friendship Group Was Divided
The woman explained that half of her friends believe that she should not have revealed the real reason why the friend wasn’t invited, while the other half thinks that the friend was being unreasonable.
The Woman Clarified the Situation
The woman later clarified, “We have tried to communicate to her about adult-only events before” and also added, “She refuses to leave the baby with her boyfriend or babysitter. Even when we say an event is adults only, like a dinner we had a few weeks ago, she still brought her baby. The Baby cried throughout the night, earning us glares, and we had to leave early.”
She Turned to The Internet for Support
One person commented, “You tried to let her down easy, and she kept on asking. Her life is different, and she probably just needs to find a different set of friends, one that more closely aligns with her interests.”
Another Person Gave Their Perspective
“She can still realistically have a bit of a social life, just requires a lot of teamwork and a bit of give and take in the early years.”
“I stopped meeting a friend for lunch because she insisted on bringing her baby, which eventually grew into a toddler. A toddler changes the entire dynamic.”
