3. Can You Handle the Changes to Your Social Life?

I know this sounds just like the last one, but bear with me. A good friend once told me that she wished someone had told her beforehand how isolating having a baby could be.

She's a single parent who loves her son, but it was a major adjustment when she couldn't go anywhere with us because he'd have meltdowns in public. He wasn't bad; he was just a *baby*. Another friend noticed that people only seemed to talk to her about babies and kids, not music or movies like before. There were suddenly a lot of things that her friends who didn't have kids couldn't relate to, which caused a major strain in their relationships. This might not be the issue for you but, if it is, how will you handle it?
