Personally, this week has been exciting! I started my new job, recorded my second radio show and my husband had a great party! I love when people drive by our home very slowly to get a good look at what we are doing. This week we had the football game projected on to the front of our house for all of our friends to come watch the game. It was fabulous and the talk of the neighborhood. Especially since I turned people away and sent them home.
I don’t want people to think I don’t like children. My entire life revolves around working with kids, mentoring them and counseling them so this is NOT the case BUT, I don’t like babysitting. In fact, it is probably one of my least favorite things to do, especially if I am not getting paid! I like to hang out with kids but not when I’m having a party that isn’t set up for children.
Why do people think that it is okay to send your children down to my house to sit among my friends and watch a football game (uninvited) when you are not even going to be there to watch them! AND, you don’t know me! My friends are all adults, they are watching a football game and they are drinking alcohol! Yes, some of our friends have their children there but they are also there to supervise them!
Sadly, I had to be the neighborhood Meany and tell about 10 kids that they were allowed to come see the game and attend the coolest party ever ONLY IF they brought their parents! After all, it was 8:30pm on a school night, what are they doing out anyway? Yes, I made children cry but oh well, I’m not throwing a parents night out babysitting party! Get a clue and some manners too!
