Thursday we had a long over due playdate! I swear playdates always tire Asher out the most!
These are 2 girls that I went to High School with. We were all pregnant at the same time with our first kids. We all had boys first! Then again we were all pregnant with our second. Two of us had girls and the other had a boy this time. So all of are kids are super close in age.
We had a playdate once when the boys were really little. They weren't even crawling yet. Between all 3 of our schedules we haven't been able to find time. Finally we did on Thursday and it was awesome to catch up! We now are going to try and make play dates a thing and actually schedule them.
Not only does Asher love playdates and it keeps him busy, but I myself LOVE playdates. I love talking to other adults. I feel like some weeks I am only around my kids and husband and thrive for other human interaction. I feel it is really important to have mom's friends!
I could not be a full time stay at home mom. I would go stir crazy. I do love my current schedule. It's just enough time at work and just enough time with my kids. I work 3 long days a week, but have off 4 than with my kids.
What else I love about playdates, being real with your mom friends. Let's face it we try to act like we have everything together, especially portraying it on facebook. Playdates are where I find out I'm not alone. My 2 year old is not the only 2 year old protesting naptime, refusing to eat lunch, and having tantrums. Don't get me wrong we have some really good days, but some days are not as smooth.
Asher loves interacting with other kids. He is very sociable. It really helps him learn how to share and it's so cute watching him play with his little friends.
It was wonderful to talk and see how these other 2 mom's are doing it with 2 kids. It's always great to know that you are not alone. We actually just scheduled our next play date and I am so excited for it. Having mom friend's is amazing and very valuable to me! Enjoy our photos! ( Of course there was no way of getting all of us in a photo . Maybe next playdate we will get one!)
