I miss my friends...

So hopefully I'm not all alone in this boat and a part of me knows that this is just a sad reality of being a young mother.

Ever since I became pregnant with my beautiful son, it seems like all my single friends suddenly disappeared as if I had the plague. Given, most of my friends were still in college or "living up the single life," it really made me sad when only a couple of them checked up on me and even then, it was once every 3-4 months. Now that I'm a SAHM, it seems like no one ever has the time to go out for coffee or just come over and hang out once the boy is asleep. Of course I get a few emails here and there when I send out new pictures of my son, but most of them haven't even came over to meet him yet. Are there lives so busy? Am I really such a drag to ask over since I have a kid?

It's even harder now that we're down to one vehicle and my fiancee works nights so that the only way I could go out and hang out with people is if they came and picked up my son and I. Am I just being selfish? Should I respect that their lives are just on a different wave-length? Most of the time, I just miss the conversation and the laughter. I love being with my son all the time, but until he learns to talk, I have to admit the conversations are a little one-sided and tend to revolve around food, poop or singing theme songs from his favorite show.

What do you all think?
