We went to a (quite nice) party yesterday. Hosted by friends of ours, lots of people around our age present, most of which were couples with kids.
I’m pretty sure that Miranda was the oldest kid there; in fact, she may have been two years older than any of the other kids. Which is pretty weird – I wasn’t the oldest adult there, and in fact I suspect I was younger than the median.
So it would seem that, in the social circles I travel in, having a kid a year after finishing grad school is somewhat unusual. I guess I’d started to realize this – most of my friends have kids now, but frequently that’s a recent development. I just hadn’t had the point driven home so forcefully before.
