#16: Playdating

On this week's show, playdates. They're crucial for your kids, and good for you sometimes, but they can also be more awkward than a forced hug from a weird old uncle.

Hey! This podcast made the "What's Hot" section in iTunes! Can I get a woot woot? 

In the early minutes of the podcast, I alluded to recent writings about standardized tests, and how I have to do them about Tess from time to time, and how much that sucks. Welp, in case you missed it, the piece "I Have A Question for the Person Evaluating My Child With Special Needs" appeared in The Mighty a few weeks back. Read it now: click here

I also mentioned a book this week. It's a good read, and plenty entertaining, but didn't work so well for us, mostly because Tess spills my drink in about a millisecond. Nevertheless, I recommend The Three Martini Playdate: A Practical Guide to Happy Parenting, by Christie Mellor.
