I just posted this on my Facebook, but I decided to go ahead and do a post on it here.
Let me start out by saying I love kids, I love my friends who have kids and one of these days I do want kids, but everytime I go to an FRG meeting I feel like it pushes my desire to have kids farther and farther back on my timeline.
I don't know if it's because I don't really know most of the women or we just have a plethora of badly behaved children,but everytime I'm at an FRG meeting with tons of kids I just want to scream.
I think it's because the women who have children in our group talk about nothing but their children, not TV shows, not their husbands, not their interests. It's all kids...all the time. Also I witnessed several diaper changes while I was eating as well as a mother who ate a piece of food that her child spit out. Maybe if I was a parent I wouldn't be bothered twice by those things, but the reality is that currently I am not and I was a bit grossed out by both those occurences. Diapers don't really bother me, but while I'm eating? I just find that inappropriate.
Am I the only one who feels this way after an FRG meeting?
