Play Date!!

Since Grace was born I have tried to be consistent with getting together with other mom's and babies for play dates. At first this was more for the mom's since the newborns just slept and ate most of the time. However, now that Grace is about to be 2, she is really starting to show her desire to socialize with more kids. She is VERY interested in watching how kids interact and play together. She is not shy for the most part, however I felt it would be beneficial for her and for Mommy's schedule to plan weekly play date with ALL of Gracie's little friends. We have lots of therapies and Dr's appointments between the two girls so I emailed all my mommy friends to see if they would be interested in a group play date. We still enjoy the occasional one on one play date but this gives the kids and the mom's something to look forward too. And as much as I don't like to overwhelm any mom with more "to-dos" this is open to whomever and whenever they can come. No obligations of any sort.

We have kids ranging from 6 months-4 years old. So with those age differences come differences in napping schedules. Not to mention mom's work schedules. So we decided to have a morning play group meet every other Thursday and the afternoon play group meet the alternating Thursdays. So far we have been doing it for a month now and I really think it is going great! I look forward to adding more kids and doing some fun things out doors now that spring has arrived. If you are in the area and would like to join our play group, please let me know! We would love to have you!!

Here are some pics of our recent play dates!! Enjoy!
