In 2001 when I was at my most socialable noone had kids. In fact I only knew one person that had a baby and he was a friend of a friend so I never actually met the child in question. Fast forward seven years and everyones having them.
I can’t even count all the kids I now know on two hands these days! Last week Angharad gave birth to her first and last night Stephanie delivered a wee baby girl.
It’s amazing that everyone I know sems to be having them now. I suppose when you look at the ages people usually start a family then it only makes sense that people in social groups will all have babies within a year or two of each other. Still doesn’t make it any less of a defining step from one phase of life to the next.
And what have I learned from this as well as childrens TV? It’s just not polite to lick other peoples marshmallows. Well there goes my fun around campfires!
