So today's dare is about inviting others in! For some mommies with younger kids this may be harder than it is for mommies with bigger kids. What you need to do today is invite somebody over! You don't have to invite them over for today, but you have to invite them today. Maybe you just send a note to soccer practice with your child saying "This is my phone number, my son/daughter would really like it if your son/daughter could come over and play sometime soon."

Maybe you're a mommy of a younger kid who isn't in school or activities and you don't many mommies with kids the same age, you can invite somebody over to play with the baby from the family. Opening up your home for your kids to have people over makes it obvious to them how important they are. Also more love and more friendship from more people is only beneficial to a child, you can't have too many people who love you.

For some this will be a hard dare just because they don't go out there and invite people, but you can't cheat and invite the kid who's already sitting in your living room from next door, if you want to do that, then you need to go above and beyond what you normally do, like invite them to spend the night if they only come to play or invite them to go somewhere with you on the weekend when you don't normally take them along.

This is about inviting somebody over for your child, but that doesn't mean you can't have a mommy play date at the same time!

Share with us your thoughts on this dare!

I finally did it, I needed to be able to send something with her to school cuz the people I wanted to invite I don't have contact info for, so I couldn't do it til it was a school day/night, etc.

I actually invited a girl's daughter who lives down the road over the other day to come play. We don't see many kids outside of our family so I thought it would be a good thing to do to get Nicolas used to meeting others he doesn't know and even better in an environment he does know.
