It's Wednesday again & time for a blog hop! This hop is hosted by three lovely ladies now! Please go to all of their blogs and check out what they have to say. Remember to follow them, too! Also - you can check the rules (please!) at nomie's blog by following the button below.

As for me, For those of you who stay home or work part time, how often do you get your kids together with friends?

When T was smaller, it was a lot easier to find time to gather with buddies and enjoy time to play, but now that he's nearing two, and NEEDS more of that, I just can't seem to get myself together to find many play dates! I feel like my life has gotten so hectic and when there is spare time, he needs a nap. Some weeks seem to be better than others, and we can get together with buds a couple of times during that week. Other times, he's stuck with me!

(adding this part a little later - thought I'd mention that I teach most mornings & evenings, so we're often left with little awake time in the middle of the day.)

What do you do to ensure your little ones get good friend time in?


  1. Found your blog through this hop... hope you get some good answers cuz I am interested in them :)

  2. Hmm. Not sure. I do daycare and Ozzy plays with those kids. Maybe set up a play date at a local place such as the park.

  3. Oh, PS. I am already a follower. The crazy lady on the purple golf cart.

  4. Glad to find a blog on the list that actually had a post and not a link to their home page! Anyhooo... My kids are school age but I would suggest scheduling play dates in advance if that's what the two of you like to do. That way whatever is going on you know in advance that you have a play date and to not put to much on your plate that day;)

  5. I have the same problem with my 2 year old son. He's stuck home all day with me while i try to work part time on my computer and it is a hassle getting play dates as often as he needs. My sister in law and I have started a tradition that we do at least 2 times a week that helps, where she will pick my son and I up in her van and we drive in to town and get the kids ice cream cones... or sometimes for feed the ducks at the park. It's usually only 20-30 minutes, but it gets us both out of the house and is a little mini break from work =)
