I still remember my first drop-off playdate for my now-16-year-old - he was about 4 at the time, and I did not have younger children yet. I could not believe that there was someone who was willing to take my child for the 2 hours or so she had him (the playdate was the youngest of three, so this was an experienced parent.) I went to the mall and bought the mom a present, even though I didn't know her very well. She thought it was funny, but i was in 7th heaven!! Definitely a parenting milestone. Of course, by the time the other two came along, I pushed for child-only playdates from a very young age :)
