Of course... my gatherings with my close friends got further apart cos I was the only mommy then. What we did was communicate thru email, MSN and smses mainly. I think people drfit apart if an effort is not made with the relationships.
Now most of my close circle of friends are mommies themselves so we have lots of common topics to talk about. But we mommies also got to remind ourselves not to hog the conversation with snipperts of our babies.
