would you use... mummy calling cards?

Olivia Brown Mommy Cards, $US35 for set of 50, Mommy Cards

I found these while searching for my birth announcements: mummy calling cards. Basically, they're business cards for mums with all your personal details on them to hand out to mother's groups, your kid's friend's mums etc to keep in contact and arrange playdates. I thought they were a cute idea, but do you think this is an "only in America" thing (sorry those reading from the States, we do tend to use that phrase a lot here for things we're a bit behind on!)? I think these ones in particular are rather swish and would feel rather stylish handing them over, but wondered if the person receiving it would think I so missed my career I had to make myself feel important in my mummy role too. Either way, it sure beats the 10-minute bag search for a pen and chocolate wrapper to write your phone number on... So what do you think? Is this something you'd stash in your wallet?

I think they would go down well with working mum's who are used to exchanging cards. But I think SAHM's would find them a little pretentious. I generally just ask for a number if the kids hit it off with someone at the park or dance class etc. Then just punch it sraight into my phone, works for me.

HI Belinda, Just following up to see if you received my email on Sunday regarding calling cards? I received an Out Of Office reply.

Cheers, Alischa

I think they are a fab idea - though I'm not a parent yet. I think I just like the idea of another fun thing to design!

I don't think I would do this, people would laugh at me while thinking to themselves "Who the hell does she think she is"
Hmmm....
