Yes definitely in central Illinois playdate has been around for a while. It
was a nice way for mothers and babies to get together. My baby is 19 and in
college and the term was used when he was a baby.
And I had nine friends in 1983 who had babies within about four months. We
had a baby group for a long time when mothers and babies would get together.
And then we would make individual playdates for just two moms and their
babies. In no way was it a chance to drop off your baby somewhere. The moms
enjoyed the playdate possibly more than the babies!
Here this had nothing to do with preschool but rather two babies-two moms.
