Sailing with small children

I am not an experienced sailor by any means, but my husband and I have owned a 30-foot sailboat for 2 years. It needed lots of work, so now that it is ready to sail, I am a bit hesitant because we have 2 small children, 2 years and 4 years old.

I am worried about two things:

1. Safety...I don''t want to have to worry about my children falling overboard.

2. Boredom...I don''t want to play babysitter down below while my husband does the sailing or have my children bug me because they are bored!

Any thoughts for me...a novice? Thanks!
