Play Group

Imagine this....11 children, all under age 5, all in one house for 2 hours? Do you have chills or are you feeling like you're in a nightmare? It happened today at my house!

I invited several friends over to play and we really had a lot of fun. There were the usual sharing issues, the kids who can't seem to keep their hands to themselves, the tattle tail kid, the sick kid, etc. You name the kid and he or she somehow found a place at the house today. It sounds like it would be a terrible experience, but it's really fun and as a mom, you just have to learn to let bygones be bygones!

Bailey enjoys having his friends come over. It helps him to want to play 'syside' or outside in plain english. It forces him to have to share his toys and to learn how to get along with others. Today, we even had a hot dog lunch courtesy of another party's leftovers! Yum! You can always tell when naptime is near because there seems to be a mass fall apart and that's when moms naturally start packing and heading home. Today all the kids needed baths because they had been playing in our dusty backyard. The Thomas Bouncer is always a hit when kids come to play!

All the mommies will recover from this one and we'll be ready to do it again in a couple of weeks!
