I am a social person but I don't like getting together with friends more than 3 times a week. My 4 year old twins are just the opposite. They want to see their friends every single day after school. They go to the same school! Every day they leave school they want to go to their friend's house and the moms encourage the playdates and the sleepovers. In a way, it is so convenient because I have friends to help me in times of need but at the same time I don't want to spend time with them more than 3 times a week.
The fact that the kids always like to go out and see their friends makes me feel like they don't want to spend time with me. Their friend's mom would pick up, drop off my kids, feed them and really take good care of my kids. I trust them a lot but it does make me feel bad that the kids want to spend more time with their friends than with me and that these other moms are so perfect and organized. They all have high heels and make-up on when they pick up their kids from school. While I barely have time to put proper clothes and brush my hair at 7:45 Am:-)
