I find playdates to be both a relief and a frustration. On the one hand, it’s nice to be able to talk to other parents (mostly about parenting) while sharing the duties of entertaining little ones. On the other hand, it’s so F-ing frustrating to try to carry on a conversation while keeping the kids from hurting each other. Oh, but I guess the whole point is so the children have people their own age to play with. It’s always about the children… Playdate
