A lot of parents don't. They make sure their child has some outside time, play ground, or backyard, doesn't matter. One of my friends is afraid of play dates, because the first one she took her child to, he got sick. So, she won't do play dates anymore. He just plays outside with him watching her. Depending on the age of your child, I don't think play dates are that important.

I'm a SAHM too and I take my Son to the Library for toddler playtime and a lot of other activities there once or twice a week. He Loves to go for the New toys (ones that we don't have at home), the train table and the books. But he really shows no interest to play with the other kids at this age. Most of the children who go love it for the same reason but there really is no interaction between the kids. I thought this was weird but that's how they are at that age. They all do their own thing there. So I really don't think play dates are necessary for children's development when they are under 3. Play dates are more for the Moms I think. My Son loves just take short rides or to stay home and go outside to "look for bugs and dig in the dirt".
