Pre-Valentine Sleepover

Back in December, Thing Two was supposed to have a Christmas-themed sleepover with her pals.  They planned to make gingerbread houses, build a blanket fort, watch Christmas movies, and other assorted seventh-grade-girl-type things.  Due to her illness, we had to cancel.

After a bit of a delay, I got conned into we rescheduled the sleepover for last night (kids have a four-day weekend because of President's Day).

Looking at this picture, can you see why Thing Two's nicknames
in their gang of girls are "White Girl" and "White Chocolate"?

  • Junk food, duck tacos, cinnamon rolls, and a boatload of strawberries were consumed.
  • A blanket fort was built.
  • "Phantom of the Opera" was watched.
  • Much to the girls' chagrin (but with advance notice to them and their parents via the invitation), electronics were collected around 10:30 last night and returned around 9:30 this morning.

Strange overheard:  I don't WANT the holy water!


  1. G---- likes me.
  2. They all consider M---- (a guy friend of theirs) "basically gay".
  3. Somebody's mom is "scary" (couldn't tell who was talking and to whom).
  4. Seventh grade girls don't actually eat as much as I expected.
  5. My kids really are in the minority by not having smartphones (NOT something I intend to change anytime soon).
  6. Middle school sleepovers are much easier to endure when one removes one's hearing aids.
  7. I wish I had figured out #6 a few hours before I did.
