Don't make your friends set up a kids room, and definitely don't make them buy hookers and blow. Sometimes it feels like all the worries I had before my kids were trivial.
I understand the urge to convey that feeling into words. Your life may have a different purpose now, but your pre-kid life was an important part of your story, and your non-kid having friends are a part of that.
