MOMMY needs a playdate

There’s just one day left! Read on…
Yeah, yeah, we’ve all seen those edgy T-shirts for babies. But have you seen the PlanetMom shirts for parents? (Pictured above, photo by Kristin Burke of Peter Baker Studios) So hilarious, we’re hard pressed to name just one favorite – “Nanny Deprived” perhaps, or “In my next life, I want to come back as my kids.” Or maybe “I need a playdate.” Because … we do. And so do you.

So, let’s play. In last week’s contest, we gave away a Nancy Drew video game and Penny Warner’s new “Official Nancy Drew Handbook” (congrats to our winner, Cathy!). This week, we’re giving away one of those fab playdate T-shirts. All you have to do to enter the drawing is click “comments” (we’ll draw a winner tonight!) and tell us about the moment when you suddenly realized you needed a playdate very, very badly. Us? When we suddenly realized we knew the words to all the Raffi songs. All. Of. Them. And we were singing them, even when we were alone. Yeah, brutal. Your turn.

    I realized I needed a playdate when I found myself quietly sneaking off from dinner with my husband, 3 1/2 year old and 2 year old to a dark playroom with a glass of wine, hoping they would not notice, then when they did they could not find me. I NEED A PLAYDATE! (Preferably one alone at a spa)

    I need a playdate to de-stress me…because I’ve been too stressed these past few days that I wore my blouse inside-out this morning!

    I realized I needed a playdate when I started dressing up for the grocery store! As if the creamed corn or the asparagus spears care that I’m wearing merino wool and my best earrings…

    I realized I need need a playdate when I was in my car in town and reached in my bag to get my cell phone….Only to discover I had brought the cordless phone from home instead! Yep, that was me! Thanks for the great chance to win this!

  6. Cathy Says:

    I KNOW I need a playdate when a solo, late night visit to Target or Safeway seems like a day at the spa!

  7. Cynthia Arauz Says:

    With having 3 children ages 16, 9 and 3 it almost sounds like a dream for me the “mom” to be granted a playdate! “Need” a playdate is an understatement!!! Thanks for listening. Mother of 3.

    I knew I needed a playdate when my oldest son said “Mommy, I had an accident!!” just as I was comforting one twin because the other had pushed him down the stairs!!

    When I refer to myself as mommy when my kids aren’t around…

    When I had a stress migraine, was laying on the couch while the kids were screaming & tearing up who knows what, and my hubby came home and asked ‘Whatcha got planned for dinner?” He’s lucky I only threw a pillow..

  12. Jennifer Cody Says:

    I knew I needed a playdate when my son pooped in the tub then after I cleaned it up I realized my daughter had taken off her diaper in the crib and also pooped all over the crib. It was a MARVELOUS afternoon for me!

  13. Caryn Bailey Says:

    I realized I needed a playdate when my husband got home and told me that I didn’t do something. I completely lost it took my keys and purse (in my pjs at that) and walked out of the house without saying a word! He came chasing after me and told me to take the night off and do something for myself over the weekend!

    Here is my ‘I-realized-I-needed-a-play-date’ moment: I was running late to work (like every morning) and after strapping my infant son in the car, gathered my work, diaper bag, bottles, purse and all that mom paraphenalia, I drove down the street, made it onto the freeway only to realize from the waist up I was the picture of professionalism, but the waist down? Mickey Mouse PJ pants and my blue fuzzy slippers. Good times.

  15. Angela Says:

    HAHAHAHA Im laughing at #5 as you have no idea how many times Ive done that.. I can tell you though that my home phone goes for 4 blocks in any direction as thats about how long it takes for me to realize Im talking on the wrong phone!!
