Re: How do you do playdates?

That is exactly what we have been doing! I feel like we are constantly pushing people away. Today was literally our first play date in 2 months, the last one was at a park (I tried to make today's at a park too but my youngest fell asleep right before we were supposed to leave, so it turned into a "oh then I'll just stop by and drop it off really quickly then"). With cold weather coming and a new baby on the way, the park thing is limited.

I want to get together with friends, I just don't want to be so stressed about it!
