I also remember my mother saying, "no more sleepovers!" Until time would pass and she would forget just how cranky I was the day after the last sleepover.
And here I am. I hate when my kids sleepover at their friend's house!
The next day?
WE pay all day.
We have a cranky, irritable kid who doesn't want to do anything asked and who is unable to tolerate a"no" without a tantrum.
And sleepovers at our house?
Just as bad!
How many times do I have to go up the stairs and say, "Girls! You must go to sleep!"
Or, the last minute sleepover- when my daughter calls at 11pm and says, "Can such and such sleepover?"
Of course I say yes, (as I remember how much I loved sleepovers when I was young, Blah, blah, blah,)
And then I realize that we won't have enough milk/juice/food for extra guests in the morning and I better hightail it to the A&P before they close!!
Whew! Truly exhausting.
What do you think? ( Remember I am a cranky, peri-menopausal mother of five, now dealing with the sleepovers of my last two children, I use to be nicer.)
