Transcript for Viral Mommy Sends Message to Friends Without Kids
We go up next in our "Heat index." Can new parents keep their child-free friends? It is a question burning up the mommy blogs after one mom's misguided apology went viral. Nearly 2 million hits. And ABC's Abbie Boudreau has the story. What are you coloring? Reporter: Almost every day, there's a youtube video in the making. All posted on her mommy blog, what's up, moms? Nap time is the hour of gold, I need to body shower and clean up shredded cheese. Reporter: It was this one, a message to her friends without kids that's really hitting a nerve. You're here. I'm not closing the door on you. That's my toddler. Shez she has a lot of energy. Reporter: Her video blog apology, withçó 2 million hits. In the 12 seconds it takes, my kid does this. I'm so guilty of losing touch with so many of my friends prebaby. This was an easier way of addressing it than being, I'm sorry I haven't returned your text. Reporter: Most moms finding her internal dialogue right on point. We used to talk on the phone every night. I just read eight books and I'm only capable of watching "Shark tank." But I'm not out. I really do love you. And in a few years I'll make it up to you with bad advice from someone who will never judge you. It's nice to know you're not the only one.

I think this video caused a lot of issues. People can be friends with people who don't have kids. As long as they invest the time and they realize there's a lot more to talk about than just their kids. And realize that you need to open your ears and be available. I would think it would be a relief for parents to not have to sort of be constantly -- Yeah. Not be talking about chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese. I would say, I have more friends who don't have kids than do. They're at the apartment. They're like my children's extended aunts and uncles. And it makes my job easier. It's interesting that people took offense to what she said. Why do you think so? I think that while for -- for moms, this was the ultimate çóme, too. But for people who don't have kids, it felt offensive because it's like, hey, their life is not as significant as mine or as challenging as mine is. And you know, you don't understand what I'm doing.
