Do any of you have "guidelines" in your households around impromptu playdates? The last couple of days have been like birthday parties around here with several of the neighborhood kids coming over to play with DS. It's been anywhere between 1 and 5 kids (they come and go), and pretty much for the entire afternoon. They've been outside, so it's not <i>that</i> bad, but some of them do require more constant supervision, and I'm hoping not to have things ongoing all summer this way. DS (5 y.o.) is needing kids to play with, and I'm OK with it, but not so many kids and for such long hours! I was talking with him tonight about how we could make a rule about only having two friends over at once, and he seemed to think that would work. I'll also have to put some limits on the length of time that they can stay, though, or I will be <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: by next week. I'm a bit undecided about what would be reasonable, and I'm wondering if any of you have already come up with something that you'd be willing to share.
