Our babysitting co-op met again today for a playdate. This time, it seemed that conversations started at the last one continued on and the kids were completely comfortable with each other. Also, this time, it was not at our house, so it was a little less stress for us, though our house is not clean because of company. It is really great to be connecting to families that live so close and who are a nice fit in terms of values and parenting styles. We are all a bit different, but there is enough common ground to build community and respect.
