Playdates

There used to be a time when playdates were unheard of in the Philippines. The idea seemed absurd at first to me. I was "why do you need to set a date for your kids just to play?".

That is coming from me and probably my generation who stepped out of the house and voila, playmates everywhere.I remember summers when I'd spend an entire day hopping from one house to the other in the neighborhood, share a bottle of coke with my friends, eat chippy, play, fight, pull each other's hair sometimes, then play again. Ahh, those were the days.

Times have changed. As a working mom, I don't even know the neighbors that well. We just moved house but I am still very far from letting my son go to the neighbors to play. So, the idea of a playdate is rather nice. It would give my son a chance to be with other kids and give mommy a time for socials. You know, mommy to mommy talk. No holds barred on dentist appointments, pediatrician talk, feeding problems, school plans etc etc.

the venue: Mcdo ATC
