More Sleepovers!

Sleepovers seem to be the big milestone for our family this year.  Nevermind that Henry's friends have had half of their teeth fall out and he is yet to lose one.  Or that we're still working on tying shoelaces (damn fine motor skills), and this summer will be all about tackling riding a bike without training wheels.  So for now, in what's left of this winter, we are all about sleepovers. 

Henry went to his first sleepover last night and the text i just got indicates it was a success.  The stars aligned and Silas was also out of the house for awhile last night.  He was invited to his first sleepover but isn't quite ready.  So instead he went for a "night-time play-date."  We picked him up close to 9 and then at his request he had a "sleepover"  in our bed.  The getting to go to yoga and then dinner with JT without paying a babysitter was awesome.  The sleepover guest in our bed-- not so much.  Imagine this but with a bigger "baby."


Sleep Over

I still remember my first sleep over-- Angela Ballengee's house.  I think i was 5, maybe 6.  I knew it was a big deal because my mom was so excited.  And it was catching.  Henry and Silas had their first sleepover guest tonight and so far so good.  They're still chattering a bit after 9:30 but i believe they'll be quieting down soon for sleep.  They're all three on the floor on a big pile of blankets and looking forward to a morning of plants vs. zombies and waffles. 

I had hoped to make homemade muffins, but with a crazy workday, a flat tire this am, and a snowstorm-- let's just say toaster waffles will fit the bill.  Here's to happy memories and not having to tell them to quiet down again!
