How Becoming A Mom Shows You Who Your Real Friends Are
When you become a parent, your entire life changes overnight. Sure, things were a bit different while you were pregnant, but you could still go (almost) anywhere you wanted at (almost) any time—doctors appointments and morning sickness permitting.

Then when your little one begins to crawl and (gasp) walk, you can’t take your eyes off of him for a second. So, the truth is that, if your friends want to see you, they pretty much have to bend and adjust to your new crazy lifestyle. It has a way of showing you who will see you, even when it’s extremely inconvenient. Here is how being a mom shows you who your real friends are.
