Some of this may have to do with socio-economic status. It is a lot easier to continue to have a life if you can afford $10/hour babysitters which cause regular movie/date nights to cost $60+. That’s hard for people to do when they are paying $1800/month for daycare now. And traveling to Europe with your child is great if you can afford another $800 plane ticket. OP, I don’t know how much disposable income your friends have, but it is just something to keep in mind when you hear others complain. There may be additional factors beyond just lthe logistics of a baby that make doing fun things more difficult.
