About Me

If you’ve been looking for a place to connect with other moms who think it’s perfectly okay to give their baby a “wipe down” instead of a nightly bath, look no further!

At The Playdate Crashers blog, there will be no judgments for “forgetting” to brush your child’s teeth last night when you were exhausted. I won’t report you for giving your toddler a lunch consisting entirely of cheese products. And I certainly won’t shake my head with disdain because you have spitup on your sleeve. I’ve been there. I know.

I know I’m not perfect and I’ve found freedom in embracing my own mediocrity. So mess up your hair, grab some dinner from the drive-thru, and don’t worry about impressing me. You’re going to fit right in! Join me as we talk about parenting and the rest of my life that doesn’t revolve around sippy cups and diapers!

Who are the Playdate Crashers?

The Playdate Crashers are me (Krista) and my two boys, Miles (6) and Spencer (5). My husband Brandon is also technically a playdate crasher but he doesn’t go on many playdates these days. We live in rural Kentucky.

What happened to Jamie? After almost exactly two years blogging together, she decided to take a break from blogging and wrote her last post on 8/28/12. Don’t worry, we’re still best friends, we haven’t broken up, she just isn’t blogging here anymore! If you want to get in touch with her, you can find her at The Red Robinson!
