Cocktail Playdates, revisited

When we picked Miss M. up at daycare yesterday, it was a beautiful fall day and all the kids were outside. We hung out for a bit chatting with people, she demonstrated her tricycle riding prowess, we discussed playdates, and Miss M. asked a teacher if she’d like to come to our house for a “wine-over”.

Some neologism, huh? Grown-ups drink wine and she's pining for a sleep-over, so the next best thing is a wine-over.

As it happens, it's the one teacher I would invite over for some wine. Though I did discover this morning that another teacher and the daycare director went to the Springsteen concert at the Garden last week. I'd have gone to that in a minute.

If that isn't the perfect blog name I don't know what is.

Very clever, that Miss M.

Mmm, I'd attend a wineover any day.

OMG - that is hysterical! What did the TEACHER say?! (I'm 40, and still scared of teachers. Even little preschool ones.)

Okay, someone has to invite me to one of these. Even if I can't drink right now, I'm dying to go have some girlie fun!

You've clearly got to be less subtle about expressing your interests and enthusiams, or you'll never get to see the Boss!

I'd get into my pyjamas and let someone braid my hair for a wine over.
She's a clever one.

I can't believe that I never had a wine-over. This no drinking for the rest of my life just sucks. A wine-over? It just sounds so seductive.

Teryn said...

I definitely think she's onto something there. I could go for a wine-over as well.

Julia said...

Why didn't I think of that? I should start inviting people to wine-overs. Can't be a bad move first year in a new school, can it?
