Mommy Cards. Have y'all ever heard of them? If not, you're about to learn something very exciting.
Have you ever been out and about, meet someone cool with a child about your child's age and you start saying "we should get together sometime?"
Then, you go rooting through the never ending abyss that is your diaper bag searching for a pen. You come up with a crayon and an old receipt, if you're lucky. There you are, with your baby on your hip, trying to scratch down your name and number legibly enough to ensure a follow-up playdate.
No? You've never done this? Well, I have.
So, these have solved the problem.
Incredibly dorky? Yes.
I know you secretly want one! Even you daddies out there. Don't lie.
They work! When I give one out, I can see that they visit my blog. So, they may never call and our children may never get to play, but they stalk me. And that's good. Right?
And yes, I do have a sitemeter on my blog. I know when you are reading and not commenting. You are my SSRs and I love you. I know you are there, so feel free to stick your head out and comment every now and then. The invitation is always open. You won't get hurt. I promise.
