Glutton for punishment

That's me. Why is it when you're a parent you sacrifice yourself for their happiness? Or your sleep to be exact.

Not only have I had babies in my bed for the last three years, tonight we've invited three 13 year old girls to spend the night.

Next week is Carissa's birthday. So, tonight three of her friends are spending the night. Did I mention that they're 13?

They already have a "plan" of what they're going to do. Some things on the list were: play chubby bunny (you know, where you cram marshmallows into your mouth), make prank calls (oh the fun I had doing this, they will NOT be doing this though), decorate T shirts (we're doing tie dye), play games, truth or dare, make sundaes (they listed the ingredients they want, one was "wipe cream", dare I put out the Preparation H?) and go in the hot tub.

No where on this list is SLEEP! Say a prayer for me. I don't so much care if they stay up all night, but PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD don't wake up the other children! I can send the older kids home the next day, the younger ones stay with me!

"Wipe Cream" LOL! That's adorable. You should sooo put out the Preparation H. That would be hysterical.
Sounds exhausting and exhilerating, which category do you fall under? LOL.
Good luck and God Bless!

I will say a little prayer that you make it through the night ;)

oh, good luck to you!
don't fall asleep, though, they may stick your bra in the freezer.

oh yes. you are insane. i've always thought that people who had more than one friend over at a time - particularly all night - are a special brand of crazy.

Oh goodness! How I loved sleepovers when I was a kid! Now - oh gosh. We'll see.

Can't wait to hear how it went and if the "wipe cream" was a hit! LOL!!
