How Did This Happen?

I'm always saying, "How am I so busy? How did I become this person always racing around to a zillion playdates?"

I finally figured it out.

Let me give you an example:

I see spring break looming ahead with 11 days of no school. I start emailing people to set up playdates. All of the people whom I contact are also desperate to do something with their kids. Suddenly I have at least one playdate every single day, a potential sleepover, and I'm juggling how to drop kids off and pick them up while managing to entertain in my home.

All of the playdates are with people I want to see, but Jeez Louise, why do I do this to myself?

* If I have a playdate scheduled with YOU over Spring Break, rest assured that I'm not talking about you and your lovely children. And even if I am, I'd go insane if you left me alone with my kids all week. It's better this way. *


  1. you don't have one with me *sob*

    But it would probably take the whole break to actually get here, so all is forgiven.

    How about a virtual Mummy playdate, I will bring the wine!

  2. You're funny. But, I hear ya. Believe me, I do.

  3. Playdate? *sniff sniff* Did I detect playdates? Wish I had playdates...

  4. Kelley, I'd love to have a virtual playdate with you! I'd even suck it up and visit beautiful Australia.

    Joeymom, we have to figure out a way to get together some day. Let's find a midpoint some time this summer to hang out.

  5. oh yes....we're almost done with Spring Break...THANK GOD...and we had stuff schedule both morning, afternoon and some evenings to keep us busy since hubby was out of town too. You'll be grateful to have the activities. Nothing is worse than hearing your kids says, "what's on the agenda for today, mom?" And your response is: "uhhh." Good for you. If you're on this side of the river, call me and we'll meet you next week. :-)

  6. Yikes! We're like hungry wolves over here, having NOT set up our playdates...*no pressure*

  7. I had the opposite problem My son and his friends were more than content to play video games all day, every day. I had to DRAG them out to play and go fun places (which, they did admit were fun afterwards luckily).
