  • when child #1 was at the sitting and crawling stage (like 7-10mos) I gave it a try for awhile but the official structured play groups were too intense for me. When I whipped out a bottle and the whispers started it was more drama than I could handle in person. Online I am strong, lol, in person not so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yep. I think playgroups are awesome to be a part of as long as other moms don't cause drama.

  • We took both of our girls to the library for story hour each week and let them do the summer reading program. We never did play groups, but we did spend a lot of nice afternoons at the park.

  • Nope. Other than the small local playgroup I started online and hosted every week for awhile in 2003 I've never been involved in anything. I don't get along with other women very well, especially in person. I did meet one of my best friends through my playgroup (she happened to live a couple blocks away from me and we met online).
    Now that my kids are older I don't need that stuff. My kids make their own friends at school and around the neighborhood and I don't set up "playdates". They just go knock on doors until they find someone that can play.

  • Before I was on bedrest with this pregnancy, I took my 2 year old to storytime every week. I also started a local moms group 2 years ago and we had at least one playdate a week, so we'd get out at least twice a week, it was good for him:-)

  • My DD is 3 and we used to do playgroups all the time...but over the past year and a half alot of the moms branched off into their own little we now have playdates with certain children. We hardly ever make storytime at the library..although we normally visit 2x a week.
