Play dates for Parents??

        This weekend my son has a friend coming over.  He and I have been doing nothing but going over what to have for dinner, what movie to watch before bed, and what the following days activities should include.  There has been a serious amount of planning going into this 24 hour window of time approaching this weekend, and why not??  It's a big deal! Playdates are fun, there will be lots of laughter and memories made. 

       Think about the last time you planned a play date for one of your kids, and then think about the last time you planned a play date for YOU and one of YOUR FRIENDS.  The last time I went out with one of my girlfriends, the only planning that was involved was a phone call, and the words, "Lunch, maybe the mall?"  Why do we plan our kids social engagements down to the minuet, and then just leave ours open to a big question mark?? 

      So here we go fellow parents, my challenge for you is to plan a play date, either with your spouse or a friend, as meticulously as you would plan one for your kiddos.  Be thoughtful, have an adventure, make memories, and have FUN!!
