    I love this! My sister lived in California for several years and their town had a play group set up this way. They would group together into families of 3 or 4. Each week the families would meet at one house and the host parents would actually leave and go on a date while the other 2 couples stayed at the house, cooked dinner (or ordered pizza) and watched the host families kids... Then every week you would either be on a date or enjoying friends without the extra cost of a sitter!

    I try to do this with my neighbors whenever possible. They have 4 kids (2 boys and 2 girls) and I have just one boy. One night when the girls have plans to stay with friends, I'll have the boys come have a sleep over at my house. Then if something comes up, my son can spend the night over with his buddies. It works out great for the parents AND kids!
