Sunday Confessional — I Can't Stand To Be Around My Friend and Her Baby

My best friend recently had a baby. She and her husband tried for years to get pregnant, so when it finally happened for them, she was over-the-moon excited. Since she's had her beautiful baby boy, she's gone above and beyond the call of mom duty, and has completely let all her other relationships fall by the wayside.

As a mother myself, I know how time-consuming caring for a child is, but she has taken things to a whole other level. She's become a huge germaphobe and is reluctant to take her baby outside of her house, she constantly talks in baby voice, and all she ever wants to talk about is babies.

If her friends want to see her, we have to go to her (which is fine at first), but when we do go over, we have to go through a lengthy process of washing our hands and disinfecting everything that comes in contact with the baby. I love my best friend with all my heart, but I have to admit that it pains me to be around her and her child. It's gotten to the point where I make up stories to avoid them and I'm starting to feel incredibly guilty about it. Can I be forgiven?
