Everything started off great. On paper she's perfect. She's a SAHM with a kiddo that's the same age as my kids AND she lives roughly in my neighborhood. WIN! For about a year we've played the Oh-we-need-to-set-up-a-playdate-game and said we would call "next week" but for a year next week never came. And then out of the blue next week arrived! So I lugged my three kids, snacks, drinks and sharable toys to the park and proceeded to do the mommy playdate thang.
