I had eight mamas and 14 kids in my little house this morning! It sounds chaotic, and I suppose it was here and there, but mostly it was really great.

I was nervous when I woke up to dark skies, but the weather cleared and we were able to get outside for part of the morning — even shooed most of the kids outside to eat their snack, which was great. Thank God for gated-off decks!
I always say I’m not a natural hostess — I’m really not — because I often get stressed out about events and worry about having too many people crowded into my little house, or running out of food. But after everyone had left today, I felt good about the playdate.
Sure, there were loud moments (with kids ranging from eight months to four years, that’s expected), but it was awesome to see everyone. It was a good reminder that I don’t need to be stressed out about having people over.
And any excuse to eat cookies at 10 a.m. is good, right?
