It has been an interesting weekend. The princess was invited to go to a sleepover at her best friend's home.
The boy begged to tag along. Poor dude. He needs to find his own buds.
He was able to go and the other mother was so nice she called up some nephews so my son wouldn't be the only boy there!
I haven't been alone without kids or husband since 2004!!! I did nothing fun. Just watched tv. YES I watched tv. A show I could actually watch as an adult! I watched Flowers In The Attic.
I called in the night to say goodnight. It was merely a second of: "Hi mom, goodnight, bye!"
You could tell they were having loads of fun!
No. They did not want to leave.
However, they didn't get much sleep and were no use in church. Baby girl wanted to stay with me in big church, where she promptly feel asleep after the first worship song.
She did wake up for the message, but again on the way home, she fell asleep.
The moment we got home, she went straight to bed! NO LUNCH! Oh My!
The boy was awake and fighting sleep. He did not want to take a nap. I vetoed :)
They had a blast. They want to visit again.
Now when I was home and tried to call to say goodnight around 9pm, the phone kept going to voicemail. After a three calls, I straight out almost panic! I'm not used to my babies being away. And letting them go was a harder thing to do. Trying not to call every hour was hard. When I finally got through, trying not to sound panic, the mother explained that her phone had died and so she was trying to get it charged and turned on again. Sigh of relief....and still caution. Isn't it weird how things like that happens?
But they do leave, don't they.
However will I handle it.
Did your child/ren ever had a sleep over?
