When Did I Open A Day Care?

I don't mind when my girls have friends over. I'm happy that these kids seem to like being here. They're silly and funny and it keeps me on my toes. However, I think I've been making our house a little to inviting day after day and I'm getting burnt out.

After picking my girls up from Sunday School a little friend asked if she could come over. I wasn't surprised. Her parents and I did the nod of "Is it OK? Yea, It's OK" and the girls piled in the van. Then another little friend ran over and asked if they could play as well. Alright. That makes one friend each. That's fair. Come on over.

When we made it into the house the phone was ringing. When my youngest answered I heard her say "Let me ask my mom". Uh-Oh. It seems that a little neighbor friend had a play-date going but they were bored and wanted to come over and have the play-date at our house. I have no idea of what came over me when these words came out of my mouth "Sure!" Am I crazy?!?

I thought we would have a pleasant Sunday afternoon after a typical, crazy Saturday run-around-the-town. Now I had a house full of little girls. Tiaras, Juice Boxes and Tantrums OH MY!

I don't regret it. I want children to play and have fun. Just don't be surprised if you find me in a corner rocking back and forth with a bottle of Valium in one hand and Chardonnay in the other.


**** And guess what? Today I'm up at Beautiful! Fabulous!. "Funny Meeting You Here". (It's about my OB-Gyn. Yup.) I hope you make it over! ****

  2. I love it when my kids have friends over ... I always wanted my house to be "the" house to be at - kwim?

    But one disadvantage ... it's freaking expensive! Holy smokes, feeding these kids can get out of hand sometimes.

  4. OH I have lived this life. Then I just got a smaller house and got rid of the SUV. My kids are still allowed to have friends over...one at a time. But I'm all done with sleep overs and being the neighborhood babysitter. I love that my kids love home but I swear that the parents love my free care and good food for their kids more.....

    Enjoy that Chardonnay!

  9. The good thing about all the kids being in your house is that you can always keep an eye on them. At least they will be under your care!

  15. That sounds like our house. All of the neighborhood kids are always here. Some days it drives me nuts. Others I smile because it reminds me of growing up - everyone always played at our house because they loved my parents - especially my mom. :)
