I gave the boys five minutes for find some sort of prop for our mini session on The Wall. They were very... creative. I'm hoping to make these mini sessions a regular part of our playdates. (I'd especially love to do this with our grown-up playdates as well.)
In addition to
terrorizing playing with nerf guns, they shared some pretty hilarious stories, rocked out on real instruments and on Rock Band, wrestled, ran, and ate.
As far as the parenting stuff goes, how do you handle household rules with kids other than your own? Do you rule more with a heavy hand or do you tend to let things slide? Now that the boys are getting older, I'm beginning to notice changes and realize we will soon be dealing with bigger issues such as swearing, the telephone (a bit trickier to monitor with cell phones), computer limits (easy to monitor in your own home but not everyone handles things the same way), texting, and more. So what do you do when a visiting child breaks a house rule?
The family is waiting for me to join them (Movie Night). Gotta go!
