Play Date Anxiety

Have you ever gone on a play date? Its kind of like a blind date, or for me it is, anyway... I took Emilia to Storytime in the Park today with high expectations of her running around and not listening to the story, and that is pretty much what happened. She didn't hear much of the story, but it was a cute book and there was a craft, but it was kind of over her head. I did meet a woman there with a little boy who was 5 months older than Mia. She seemed nice and we found out we go to the same pediatrician's office! That is for some reason always my question when I meet someone new... Where is your pediatrician? Its kind of like What's your sign? oh my... am I a creepy pick up play dater? When we were getting ready to leave, I wanted to ask her for her number or email or something, but HOW do you do it? Just ask? Do I make up little business cards? Something like "Joei... Emilia's Mom... Wants to be your friend" Its like a whole new world out there. It makes my heart pound and I get sweaty and I giggle a lot and worry about what I look like and what I say... Thank goodness I'm married since I don't even know how to make new friends, let alone pick up a guy...

I haven't done this yet. Scares me to death. I'm not good at meeting new people either. I try to go with someone I know when I do new things for the first time.

Your new picture is cute!
