Follow up to WHY I didn't want kids at our party.
As you guys know it was suppose to be an adult party only.
One couple still showed up with their toddler.
All night I could hear the mother saying to her husband "You have to watch her too." They chased their child from one end of my house to the other all night.
They would ask our friends where their little ones were and everyone would reply with a sitter.
Their child ate out of our trash can. Shook the tree and knocked off ornaments. Then broke something in the house. I had food set up everywhere and the child was in each display of food. It was nightmarish.
Next year I will have to address this better. But, it was not something that anyone let break the party mood if they could. But, the people at our house that had kids were not happy to deal with a child running around and having to worry about picking up wine glasses.
I also got compliments for handling it very well. I think the wine I had helped!
