My daughter has a fairly large circle of friends. These friends have parents who throw their daughters birthday parties each and every year (unlike me).
The bulk of her friends were born in the first few months of the year, which means that for several months the child has a lot of parties to attend.
This month she attended three parties, two of which were sleepovers. Last Saturday's sleepover had a theme. The guest were asked to come dressed as a celebrity of their choice.
Kate and her best friend Jaquelyn wanted to go as twins and the only twins they could think of were the Olson twins, Mary Kate and Ashley. Blonde wig, big glasses, skinny body, dark make-up and granny style jewelry......the look was complete!
Now it is pretty typical that when there is a sleepover that the girls go to bed late. The goal is to stay up as late as your 10 year old body will allow.
Kate came home on Sunday at 9:00 a.m., by 9:30 a.m. she was sound asleep and she stayed asleep until 12:30. Something tells me that they reach way past their goal.
