When Did THAT Happen??

I’m sure you’ve all been there – out with your kids somewhere and the “big kids” come around and take over the park or the toys or whatever. You’re thinking, “Where are their parents?? If they hurt my kid(s), I’m gonna be pissed.”  …right?

*sigh* That ended up being  my kids recently. We went to a birthday party for Ned and Penny over the weekend… Burke and Maggie were the biggest kids there! Holy cow – how did that happen? (Actually, now that I think of it, Logan was about a year older than the rest of the kiddos there too!)

Okay – as far as kids go, they were actually really good. They did take over a climber in the corner of the playroom…and I think I got “the eye” from one parent as Burke almost fell on her child (I would have given it as well, so I don’t blame her!) But I tried to have a tight leash on them so they wouldn’t take over the entire room and terrorize the other little kids there.

What do you do – as parents – in this situation? I needed to let them play … it wouldn’t have been fair to make them sit in a corner the whole time; but I really (really) didn’t want them to accidentally bump into a newly walking kid and tip him or her over.
