  • I'm a SAHM, I have my best friend over pretty much constantly but she's part of the family. I have other ladies over whenever they drop in, probably around every other day. Ours is a very come knock on the door, kick back and relax with some food sort of house. I never tend to plan anything, I enjoy having a full house most of the time. Playdate wise is the same, except for arranging some things with kids from school about once a week. I also have a few children I take to school every morning that their mothers drop off early as they're at work so early.

  • I'm a SAHM. And most of my friends are SAHM's. We tend to talk on the phone every day. Then we realized that we would actually go weeks without seeing each other. Now, we've tried to get together more often just for some girl talking time. It's really important to have that face to face contact. Even if it's just for a glass of tea and a little chit chat!

  • I work full-time. I have lunch with my girlfriends from work pretty consistently. I'ts nice to have meals where I can eat with both hands and have an adult conversation. Play dates are harder, b/c I haven't had the chance to get to know the other mom's and everyone's schedule is so different. My daughter is 3 and we've only had 1 play date outside of family members. She gets together with her cousins maybe once every 2-3 weeks.

  • Not near enough. Not since summer. I see them every week at church, where we always say we need to get together, but it never seems to happen. I do meet one of my friends at the gym twice a week, but that's it.
