We are in our early 30s and most of our couple friends have kids. We both like kids, but for various reasons I won't go into, we will not have our own. What gets me is that whenever we get together with our friends, we always have to go to their house because it's easier for them. And this isn't just one couple, it's all of them. (We have very few friends without kids.) Most of the time we just grin and bear it, but once in awhile, it really bugs me. This week, we're making plans with some friends for a games night and I casually asked if there was any chance they could come to our place to mix things up a bit. And of course, I got the standard response - easier for them if we come to their place, hard for the kids sleep schedule if they sleep somewhere else, tight on money, so can't really afford a babysitter, etc. etc. She did finish with saying how grateful they are that we come to them all the time. It's all well and good, but why are we always the ones who have to accommodate friends with kids? It would be nice if once in awhile they could recognize this and come to us, but I don't know how to say that without offending anyone, or if it's even worth it.
