Want to Start a Play Group

I would like to start a play group/time swap with other moms/parents in my area. Once or twice a week for our kids to play together and/or baby sitting for 2 hours a week so mom can get her nails/hair done, shopping baby-free, or just to read a book or take a bath without interruptions from a toddler.

Indoor Fun Activity or Place to Visit in DFW Area

My sister-in-law is coming to visit this weekend and wants to take our 3 year old to go do something fun. We live in Frisco and she originally wanted to take him to the Ft Worth zoo...however, it is suppose to be chilly on Saturday and to be honest, she doesn't have children and I don't feel comfortable having someone take my child to such a busy place where he could get lost without me being with them. I know I might be overproctective but it's my baby and I couldn't live with myself if something happened. I have been trying to think of...

What Would You Have Done at This Playdate?

My older daughter has had a good friend for about a year who moved to another school nearby. The last time the friend was at our house was my daughter's bday party and I remember being a bit surprised that she seemed to have a bit of an attitude. She'd always been very nice. But didnt think much of it. Yesterday she came over for a 1:1 playdate. My younger daughter was at swimming for about an hour so they had time alone. When I brought my younger one home and our nanny left, the girls started playing outside. They took my younger...

Pretend Play or Dress Up?

Does anyone know of a place in the Plano area that our therapist can take my daughter to do pretend play or dress up or something interactive? My daughter has autism, and we do 30 hours a week of therapy. I am looking for a different setting than our home - she is sooo tired of all our stuff. The Clubhouse 4 Kids (parker and independence) is exactly the type of place I am looking for, but unfortunatley, they closed down. Any suggestions? Thanks. J.

Am I Doing My Kids a Disservice by Not Having a Social Life?

I guess my question is am I setting an antisocial example for them? I have moved 3 times in the past 9 years, all different states. I can rarely make friends and my husband and I have never used a babysitter so we don't get alone time unless family is visiting. But now that my daughter is in school I feel a little awkward about not having a social circle. I had one friend in the last place we lived and our families got along great but we usually just got together for playdates. Now we are in another state and I am overwhelmed with...
