While I'm complaining about other things...I'm also curious as to what your "playdate style" is when it comes to having friends over, particularly ones you don't know as well. Do you stress about the way your house looks or not really care? Most of our new parent friends in our area have amazing homes and ours is cute, but we are still renovating and it just seems so shabby in comparison. I HATE getting caught up in all that, but sometimes I feel embarrassed to have people over. Is that lame?
I'm middling. I like things tidy and fairly clean (floors vacuumed). But I'm not overly anxious about it. We have people over quite frequently. Prolly three times a month or so. Our house is pretty small, but I don't mind. I've never been big into a big house or anything.
I NEVER have people over. ever. my house is a dump compared to my friend's houses. I am self conscious and embarrassed, our house is never perfectly cleaned unless I know someone is coming by so one of my biggest fears is people dropping in! plus our furniture is shabby and mismatched.
I prefer going to other people's houses. I don't like the pressure that comes along with friends coming over here! Doesn't help that all my friends seem to have constant tidy clean houses. My house is usually messy...because the kids have a lot of toys here on the main level. Once Lilah is good doing stairs, we are moving ALL the freaking toys to the basement!
