Here I am taking a selfie (originally for myself) to make sure I’m presentable for Luke’s play date. The night before was spent staying up late cleaning, making sure the fridge is stocked and deciding what games/toys should be pulled out. I spent the night wondering will the couple like us? What if the mom and I have nothing in common and there’s awkward silence. What if the dads don’t mesh? It honestly feels like dating. Like my husband and I are going on blind dates with other couples who have kids. What do we wear? What if the kids play great but the parents don’t like us? 😆 Has anyone else experienced this or am I going crazy? Why does setting up play dates feel so much like dating? I obviously wouldn’t go full on date night make up, but a little something to hide my sleepless mom dark circles and stress 😅. I decided to go for a more natural look, in hopes to appear like I did not just spend the last 24 hours planning this exact moment. Personally it feels just as stressful as dating, but it’s just another part of motherhood. What we do for our littles.
