Mine always fall through too, I feel so bad. Its always something. I am happy he plays with his friends at school but with afterschool stuff and work and juggling everything else. who really has time for a playdate anymore anyways. Its easier for me to just take him to the park on Sunday, we have a large city park where EVERYONE takes thier kids I let him loose in there. Thats his playdate..when we make it to the park.

DD is 7 so we are starting the hang out phase rather than calling it play dates.  I am hoping she gets invited over this coming week to a friends house so they can do girly things together.  At 8, he should just be able to go over there to play with his friend without you having to be around.

That would be hard for pick up/drop off when you have an 8 hr shift unless they did a sleepover and you were working over night.

my dd is an only child (well at least she is being raised as an only child she has siblings older than her and do not live with us) I try to set up play dates as often as I can. i am very busy and hardly have time to breathe let alone make small talk with strangers while our kids play but I make it a priority because I know she gets lonely

Never really set up playdates, just went to friend's houses or met at the park with friends.

We only have them every few months and the birthday parties. She is 6. The parents don't stay with the kids anymore for ours. But I got to know the parents some when they were younger and they got to know me.
