Grownup Entertaining with Small Children
Friday's wine tasting was a success! K, myself, and our husbands tasted three white wines and a rose over the course of several hours, appetizers, and sippy cup mishaps. We are still tallying the results, so stay tuned to get our recommendations for white wines under $10. In the meantime, here's my rundown on how to entertain with small children (Between K and I, we have 1 two-year old, and 2 one-year olds).
Lessons learned for next time:
- Get a babysitter.
- Start later, at least after the babies have gone to sleep.
- Have planned activities for older kids. I broke out the crayons and paper, but much too late to have much affect. Next time, we'll have a coloring station set up with lots of paper, crayons, and stickers. And kid-appropriate videos like Elmo and Dora for when coloring loses its panache.
- Have bigger scorecards. Mr. Idgie has an amazing turn of phrase and I'm afraid I missed out on some great descriptions because all he did was circle numbers. I wanted comments!
