It’s a Monday so that means we’re back in the rounds of playdates. They can be quite stressful and tedious but how else do the little people learn to interact with each other? The plus side is that the mummies/carers get an hour of grown-up conversation! Today’s playdate was hosted by Rachel. DS got roundly scolded for picking her flowers and trying to pull up the lettuce!! And rightly so; Rachel and I both feel that you should have the right to scold a child if it misbehaves in your house (or garden, as in DS’s case!). I frequently tell her DD1 to stop sucking her thumb!!
