Reflecting back on my dear daughters first sleepover I am thrilled with how the whole par-taaay went. The girls feasted on friendship and giggled themselves into a blissed out state of euphoria.
“People who have this much fun should be sent to jail Mom!!” My BlueEyed girl yelled at me over her frozen mocktail. Tears of laughter streaming down her face.
Yep, I did my job, memories were made that evening that will last us both a lifetime.
However, there were some gifts from this “party of the year” that this sleepover virgin did not expect.
Left behind from the sleepover extravaganza were piles of triple brownie chocolate fudge cake, mountains of chips and copious amount of teeth rotting candy. When dawn breaks, I quickly discover lack of sleep leaves a girl with no self control. My thighs do not thank you sleepover.
Weeping crying children~my nerves no longer appreciate your subtle charm. Clearly you need your solid eight hours as much as I need my solid errr chopped up seven hours of sack time.
The biggest surprise of all. A raging case of head lice. *shiver and eeek!! This gift courtesy of BlueEyed girls best friend?
Good thing I love your BFF so very much, cause honey, those creepy crawlies are a pretty big price to pay. Even for “the best party ever!”
Yes my dear sleepover, clearly, you are the gift that just keeps on giving. Wonder when we can have another one?
