The Politics of Playdates

The Politics of Playdates

transracial adoption
Do not ever initiate the play date because then you will feel obligated to have the play date at your house. The mom will drop her kid off and go shopping. Now you are stuck with both kids for the afternoon. You are basically free childcare. I can't believe it has taken me three kids to figure this out.

With the new kid at Isaac's school, however, I managed to get the play date at the other kid's house. Not only that, I asked the other kid's dad to pick them both up at school. Now I have the whole afternoon free. I do feel a little guilty about taking advantage of this first-timer though. And also I have never actually met the kid, nor do I have any idea who his parents are. Mostly, I am just worried they think I am that kind of mom, which of course I am. I'll offer to take the kids next time.
