does anybody else feel "left behind" when many of their friends are starting to have children?
DH and I are definitely not ready to start a family (frankly we don't know if we ever will) and it just seems like some of our friends are moving on, now that they are having children - life is just so different after you have kids.. no more spontaneous get togethers, etc.
I guess I'm curious - how do others handle this? Also, I know this is an age old question but how do you respond when nosey family (especially extended family you don't know very well) and friends ask that dreaded question... "when are you going to have kids?" I'm starting to run low on come backs / answers. In fact, I actually told DH's cousin once that I couldn't have children (because I didn't know what else to say). Needless to say, that answer stopped him dead in his tracks and he dropped the topic immeadiately. That's not true (that we can't have children), and I really don't like lying, but I don't really want to talk about it either...
