Ok i have a question for you all. When i say the word playdate do you think of you dropping off your kids? Or do you think of moms g2g with other moms who have kids and while the moms chitchat the kids play?

We have playdates with a boy from school. We drop our child off at each others house.

It depends on who I use the word with.
With my friends it means we meet somewhere and moms stay.

With their friends from school, it means drop off.

Younger kids, mom's chat while they play. Older kids get dropped off at each other's houses for playdates.

mom's chat while kids play. Then again the oldest children are 5yrs and under, so school playdates haven't happened yet.

I have thought about this long and hard and want to expand on my original answer.

When the mommies are having playdates, the kids just come along and hang out while the mommies are having their playdate.

When the playdates are for the kids, then the kids get dropped off.

playgroup means mums and kids hanging out- kids play, mums chat.

playdate- I'd say drop off and leave. But it depends on the age of the kids in question, my oldest now can do playdates where I drop him off and I'll invite a friend or two over of his , and they can be dropped off. Especially if I'm inviting his friend over after school, I don't want to have to entertain his friend's mother as it's prime time at my house- dinner prep, daycare kids get ready to go home, etc.

I think it really depends on the person you are talking to. I would specify if it were me requesting.
