as i get older i'm less surprised when people i grew up with have children. recently a rash of people i know had kids, and its no longer an elite club. and i'm happy about that.

there's a line from "the pallbearer" that goes something like: you know what being 27 means? it's receiving a phone call one day to find out your best friend is getting married.

well, being 30 means that you find out your friends' are having children, and you're more surprised that it's taken them this long.

jill carrick, for starters. also, my friend caitlin just had a baby in march and my friend eva is having a baby within the next few weeks.

an acquaintance shannon had a baby a month or two ago as well as brian mcgowan having a baby last year.

I think its all perspective. If you have been married or had kids for a while then it seems like it took people forever to get caught up. If you arent even close to having kids or getting married then it still makes you think "Wow, they had a kid already?".
