One of my new favorite blogs is Suburban Bliss. Melissa, the mama who writes this blog, is a proponent of mixing booze and playdates. So much so that she was on the Today Show this morning spewing the virtues of such a brilliant combination. If you, like me, didn't catch the segment when it aired, you can see it here.
What is wrong with you people? Why haven't you informed me of this sooner? I feel so betrayed by you all! The video depicts mamas sitting around in a restaurant (albeit one far too fancy to show my children's faces in. Red Robin anyone?) and they all have their babies in one hand and a drink in the other. Now that's the tribe I'm looking for.
In other news I took the girls on a sort-of play date this morning. I say sort-of because I only got to exchange about five words with the other mamas over the course of two hours and Iris just raced around the children's museum like a mad woman. It was neat to finally put some faces to MDC screen names, though! Sadly, there was no booze involved, though I wonder how popular I would be for suggesting a bar for our next meeting spot?
