If your kids are still babies, you may not know this yet. But hosting a play date is ten times easier than spending a cold, winter Sunday at home trying to entertain your kiddos. It may seem counterintuitive that more kids equals easier, but I swear it’s the truth!
Like many siblings, my kids bicker constantly about nonsense. But something magic happens when a “buffer” enters the situation. Adding an outside party to the equation provides hours of endless entertainment. Suddenly the toys that were boring ten minutes before are now intensely fascinating. And the sister that was supremely annoying is now a totally viable playmate.
If your to do list is mounting, your kids are whining and you just need a moment’s peace (who doesn’t!?), play dates are definitely the answer. I tell you, it’s magical.
