When you're child makes a new friend, do you make it a point to be friends with their friend's parents? lol that's a mouth full!
We want our children to have friends and organizing play dates and birthday party invites is just a part of that period in their lives. However I've noticed that most parents take an indifferent approach to parents of their children's friends, they stay informed of who is taking care of their child while on a play date but see no need to go further than that as far as developing a friendship of their own is concerned.
I find that as I get older it becomes harder to make new friends, especially with other moms and I'm assuming that's just what happens with age. I also keep true friends for a long period of time, I have three I've known for more than a decade and I like it like that. However if a budding friendship developed as a result of my daughter making friends with another little girl or boy I'd be delighted! I hope for things like that but I don't count on them.
How about you? Are you friends with your Dd or Ds's friends parents?
