Over the past few months I have seen a few articles in my parenting magazines about calling cards. I have seen both cards for the mommy and cards for the kiddo and I have been thinking about jumping on this new (?) fad.
I tend to be a rather shy when first meeting people but I don't want my personal short comings to distract from Madison having friends. Maddie on the other hand is an absolute social bug! She meets 'friends' EVERYWHERE we go! A few weeks ago we were at the pet store and Maddie tagged along with another little girl the entire time we were in the store and they even had to give each other hugs when it was time to leave. Of course if I was a super mommy I would have shared contact info right then and there with the other mama but I shyly smiled and scurried Maddie out the door.
So I have been thinking about this mommy calling card thing and think it may just help. I have found a TON of them online as inspiration but will probably make my own. I have seen a few different styles but the basics would include my name as 'Amanda mommy to Madison' with my cell phone number and e-mail address. The other ones I have seen also include the places we like to play like the local playground and any child friendly places we have memberships to like the Children's Museum.
Do you have mommy calling cards? Do they help you make playdates for your kiddos?
