Donato is still too young for a playdate...but I'm looking forward to the day when I can drop him off at a friend's house for a couple of hours. I'm still too new to know all the "rules" of playdates. I've got time to figure it out.

According to The Stir, here are 7 PLAYDATE RULES MOMS FOLLOW:


1. You have to give at least two weeks notice. No last minute planning! 

2. You should plan on hanging out at the friend's house...just in case the kids don't get along. 

3. Plan on having the playdate last at LEAST two-hours. Plan accordingly. 

4. Make sure you provide healthy snacks if you're hosting a playdate. 

5. Don't stick the kids in front of a TV. Make sure they're playing a game or using some sort of creativity.

6. If your kid gets invited to a're expected to invite them in return. 

7. You should send a "thank-you" note or email to the host parent.
