Re: Play date etiquette ??
Hmmm, playdates around here mean the mom+all the kids come over or vice versa. But the circle I hang out with tend to homeschool so it's kind of a given a mom will have all her kids with her. But even my non-hs friends are of the same mind.
So I would just check with her and if she meant only you and daughter (which would never work for us... would not get a babysitter for playdate!!!), I would offer to have the mom come to your house.
If the friends are very trusted, I might offer to drop one of my boys off; but only if they are very trusted. The older boys have been to 2 different friends' houses without me and loved it, but I would never be comfortable with that if we had just met the parents.
