This whole play group thing is going much better since our disaster last week. We have had two successful adventures, and I am glad we tried again.
Sunday, we celebrated my youngest niece’s second birthday, and Corbin and Lynley did really well at the party. I don’t know why I’m surprised. They always seem to do well out and about, but this was no normal outing. This was Chuck E Cheese!!
Monday, we had another get together in our own neighborhood this time. We met with two little boys and two other sets of twins, identical 2-year old boys and a 3-month boy/girl set. The older kids played on the playground and all of the babies sat on a blanket in the shade. I had brought lots of toys for Corbin and Lynley to play with, but of course they were more interested in the grass! Haha. I let them grab at it, but tried to keep it out of their mouths. After about 30 minutes, they got bored, so we went for a little walk in the stroller. Overall a great experience! We are all getting together again next week for a water play date, on a splash pad on the ground though! Sounds better to me than the pool, so I’m crossing my fingers. At least it is at one of the mom’s houses, so we can choose to go inside if we need to.
How many tries did it take for you to get comfortable with having play dates with other moms and kids?
