These are prime days for sleepovers. Almost every weekend, Claire has a a sleepover. She sleeps at Susies’. She sleeps at Emma’s. She has Susie or Emma over to her mom’s. She has Susie or Emma over to my house. Sometimes Claire has two sleepovers in a row and manages to stay awake and be in a reasonable mood on the third day.
At this point, Claire has probably had dozens — even hundreds? — of sleepovers. They are so easy and routine that I just go to sleep and let them have fun and get themselves to sleep when they’re ready.
At the moment, Claire’s sleepovers involve a few basic ingredients:
- A friend (or two) – mostly Susie or Emma
- Molly – thank you, Claire, for being sweet enough to include Molly in your sleepovers!
- ROBLOX – everyone whips out their laptops or iPads and plays the same game online while sitting next to each other on the couch, coordinating and joking.
- The Office – always on in the background, and never gets old!
We’ve gotten a little tired of pizza. Tonight I made spaghetti carbonara, and other times we’ve had, uh, spaghetti, or ramen. I’m saying anything but pizza right now!
Anyways, these are the glory days of sleepovers, and I love it. These kids make it so easy!
