My son who is 5, is going on his first formal playdate tomorrow, meaning not with anyone who im friends with. I have chatted with the mother a few times at school , exchanged emails and I genuinely have a good sense that there a nice family. I'm also going on the playdate too. It's awkward because I would be fine just dropping him off but i think she feels she needs to invitie me to stay to make me feel comfortable. although, like I said a drop off would be fine with me. How do I get this across without seeming rude? I'd like to have her son over later too, but don't expect her to stay either. Is there a polite way to get that across too?I'm all new to this playdate thing and this awkward should I stay or should I go aspect of them.
