Today’s assignment that I chose to accept from Mama’s Losin’ It‘s assignment desk is to “mommy play dates? What’s your experience with mom dating?“.
I have a home daycare. Other mother’s often leave my house grateful for only having one (or two) children. They also “don’t know how I can do it with so many toddlers under 3”. Stop telling me that, please, people! It is my J-O-B for crying out loud. Don’t sit there and pity me because I have to make money to feed my children! This is the best compromise I could think up to stay home with my children while working. I’m open to other ideas that let me play all day and enjoy a quiet time afternoon. That said, I’m a bachelorette when it comes to Mom dating.
I haven't read what you are referring to, however, I also have a home daycare/preschool. I have found that my clients have become my best friends (other than my family who really are!). I think in our career fields it actually makes it easier to make adult friends, because we have a shared interest-their children! I find it easy to chat with these Mom's longer then is necessary, because they need someone to talk to about their children. They just need a listening ear, and open heart. Good luck to you!
