My older daughter started a new school this year and I thought it would be fun to hold a monthly breakfast to get to know the other parents at the bus stop. They are a great bunch of people and our “meetings” are lots of fun. We get together at a local place (Swing the Teapot in Floral Park, NY – love it!) and we share stories about life, teachers, kid and school activities as well as stuff going on in the neighborhood. We also swapped cell phone numbers. In case something ever comes up and daily bus stop pick up becomes a problem, we can help each other out.
As Hillary Clinton once said, ” It takes a village to raise a child.” I always like to say “Sharing is Caring ” and setting up a monthly breakfast, lunch or happy hour is a great way to do that. Enjoy!
