A Hefty Dose of Reality

This afternoon I hosted a baby shower for a dear friend who's about to have her second child. Most of the invitees (including the mom-to-be) have kids around Luke's age, so the shower morphed into a playdate involving 9 adults and 6 kids under 3.

Rather than get into all the messy details, let's just say that my house is covered in stickers, there are mysterious stains on the living room rug, my TV has sticky fingerprints all over it, and Luke went to bed half an hour early because he was so exhausted from all the activity. If this is what it's like to have a big family, I am officially ruling out more than one kid after Luke.

LOL...You know that the rule of thumb is not to have more kids over than your child is old, right? Apparently that's all they can handle at one time! Not to mention how much the mommies can handle!!!

Good luck with the mystery stain. We have several. I'm thinking the next party we have we'll play "Name That Stain." If we have all the same kids over we should figure out what most of them are. :)
