Sleepover Parties

When I was younger, these were called slumber parties. Today, they are sleepovers. My only observation is that they are a real sacrafice by the parents -- if your pre-teen is attending one, you may as well give up the following day as they come home tired and EXTRA crabby. If you are nice enough to host one (having forgotten how awful it was for you the last time), you are relegated to snack and food service and being stuck in your bedroom. You cannot win either way.
As we prepare to host a sleepover tonight, I am thankful that my daughter has a group of friends who are excited to get together. And for everything else we have, too.
