My twelve-year-old daughter really misses her best friend from Cincinnati (where we lived before our recent move). They used to have sleepovers all the time. Fortunately, because of technology, they are still able to keep in touch regularly.
"Mom, I'm having a sleepover tonight with KK (her friend)."
"Really?" I asked. "How are you going to do that?"
She pulled out her iPod. Her best friend was on it via Facetime. "Hi, Mrs. Ellis," she said, waving.
"Hi, KK," I said.
"We're going to stay up all night on Facetime," my daughter said. "Maybe we'll even watch a movie and eat popcorn together."
"Right," I said. "And then have a pillow fight?"
The girls grinned.
So that's what they did - watched part of a movie, ate popcorn, danced around to music, talked about girl stuff, and went to bed. The only thing that was missing was the pillow fight. And I certainly didn't miss that!
