3. Change Diapers Away From Party Guests: Even if the party host says it's alright and every member of the group in attendance has a child, do them all a favor and change diapers away from the main gathering area. Even if no one cares, making the space as pleasing as possible is a bonus and that means keeping smells down to a minimum.
4. Don't Over Stay: It's easy to let time slip past you when everyone is having a good time, but staying when little one's get cranky or frustrated, no matter how much fun you're having, is never a good idea. Keep your time spent at a party within their normal sleeping schedule. Don't be afraid to ask if you can come a little early to hang out instead if you know you won't have much more time than to eat and run. The hosts want to see you, that's why they invited you!
5. For Every Story You Tell About Your Child, Tell 3 Without Them: Everyone is guilty of it, once there's something new in your life you just can't stop talking about it. People want to hear the funny things about your kids (or dogs or new computer or pet parrot, whatever...) but in mixed company keep a 3 to 1 ratio of kid stories to non. Even if it seems like you're incapable of having any conversation that doesn't have the word Lego in it, do your best!
