I counted today, and of my 322 friends, approximately 25 of them are past child-bearing age (I used age 42 for women and no cut-off for men), and I didn't count them. Also, there are about 25 of the remaining almost-300 who I don't know well enough--or don't talk to often enough--to know whether or not they have children and what their ages may be.
Of those friends remaining, about 270-some, the breakdown is as follows:
- 145 have children age 18 or under
- 48 of those have at least one child under age 2 (and in some cases, more than one)
- 11 are pregnant or have pregnant wives
I guess this shows that not EVERYONE I know is pregnant or parenting. It only seems that way. ;-)
Still, over half of my friends on FB who are of child-bearing age are currently parenting, and that's a lot.
