That post doesn't make sense. P2 has the baby AND can't have kids. Adoption? What is the point you are trying to make?

How are these 21 year old girls affording a private jet to go to Miami for a weekend of clubbing/ partying. Who are these people. How can I be friends with them? How can I join these groups?

Lots of post about kids so I’ll offer one that’s been on my mind. Why more than one kid? I grew up with a sibling.

Lucky that we are same gender (which I do think impacts closeness), that we are close in age, and just clicked like bffs. Have since met so many sibs with non existent and toxic relationships. More kids = more expense. After passing on genes and getting love of a child, why have more than one
