Had a play date with 2 babies, 4 preschoolers and 1 primary school kid.
It was so noisy! But good to catch up. (Although I had to run down ever so often to pick up my kids from the school bus/school.)
I think the success to enjoying myself while hosting is not to stress about food.( TAPAO!) and just keep the toys outside so that the children will self entertain. And even if they run amok…keep calm and keep talking.
Only thing is my kids had a melt down when their friend left and cried all the way to bed. How can we end things on a sweet note?
