January 16. Day 16. The sleepover

Honestly why they call it a sleep over, I have no idea. Sleep oviously has nothing to do with it at all. Perhaps it is just because there would not be many acceptances to an event called an over.
For whatever reasons kids love them. Parents, not so much. Host the event and you have a house full of non sleeping guests. For the parent doing the collecting the next day you have tired and grumpy small people to put up with.
But like wine some things improve with age and this is one of them. Yes, it was late when they finally went to sleep but as this image shows there was little action at 9am the next morning

  1. Charlotte had a friend over for a sleepover on Saturday. I stirred at 2am and could hear them playing around, though Glenda believes they were still up later!
    Ah, childhood memories of pitching a tent in the backyard and "camping out" with mates!
