“Before I had two kids, I was totally on top of things. I was rarely late, I didn’t cancel dates or appointments, and I always had what I needed in my neatly zipped up little purse. It started going seriously downhill with #1, and after I had #2, it all went to shit, literally and figuratively. I missed writing deadlines, I bailed on people left and right, and my diaper bag was always full of crap I didn’t need and contained nothing useful. My friends who had kids or were really good friends understood. The ones that couldn’t deal, well, they couldn’t deal and I couldn’t do anything about it.”
