Today marks the first time we've had a large party since adopting the boys. Sure, we've had two or three people over for dinner, but this is the first time we're having a large group of people over to the apartment and serving food that can easily make a mess like potato chips, doughnut holes, and hot dogs.
I'm nervous that some of the food will find its way onto the floor and into the boys' mouths. What happens if they eat a potato chip or a doughnut crumb? What happens if soda or beer spills and they take a few licks? I'd love to be able to prevent it all, but anything is possible. I suppose we could never have a party again, but the boys are ten months old now and it had to happen sometime.
