Playdate Etiquette for Parents
The goody-baggification of American child-hood may be to blame. (Remember when birthdays were only for the birthday kid? Now parents’ weekends—and backseats—are littered with gummy dinosaurs and cake pops.) Then again, sometimes a person just gets in the mood to bake and doesn’t want the results calling her name from the counter. In any case, you don’t have to show up to a playdate with anything besides your child.
