I'm dreading tonite, having a few of the neighbors over. Usually we go over there... but tonite the gang is coming here. I'm pretty anal about how clean I keep my house. Well, last time they were over, she stopped by for only about 20 minutes. Her son is going to be 2 next month. He's really big for his age. Well, they don't watch him. He was all over the place and into EVERYTHING. It was like a hurricane had come through and destroyed the place. She moved some candles and stuff because he was picking them up and throwing them. She didn't even bother to move the stuff back to it's spot before she left. He was running laps on my light beige couch with shoes on. My husband tried entertaining him and he got bored and threw a video game controller across my living room. I know it's not his fault. He's curious and he doesn't know any better. He's never been taught otherwise. My house is not baby proof. Whenever we go to their house it's a wreck... spaghetti-o's thrown on their nice tv for example. I just want to scream WATCH YOUR KID.But I'm trying to think of a way to get out of it so that the guys can hang out here at the house and the girls can do something else so that my house is not the aftermath of a natural disaster. I don't think I'm being too harsh? There's two other children the same age that come over with their mom when she comes over and she would never stand for them touching things without permission. Sorry for the long post... just had to vent!
