My daughter had a sleepover last night at our house. You should've seen the list she had for things to do.
I looked at the list. "Go swimming? Eat Pizza? Watch a movie? Eat popcorn? Write in diaries? Tell ghost stories? Bedtime 1:30 AM? What kind of plan is this?"
My daughter laughed. "It'll be the best sleepover ever!"
Right, I thought.
One by one, she crossed the activities off of the list. (Yes, we did go swimming at 8:30 PM.) At 10:00 we were catching fireflies. At 11:00 I had had enough of staying awake, so I let the kids do their own thing.
They finally went to bed some time after 1:30 AM.
Needless to say, it was hard getting everybody up this morning. My kids fell asleep many times in the car today. It's going to be an early night tonight.
(And yes, my daughter said it was the best sleepover ever.)
