Big Sprout wanted a sleepover for her birthday party. She was allowed to invite 2 friends for a night of junk food eating, movie watching, and Wii playing.
It was interesting, and exhausting.
I learned a lot about my Sprout during this time. I was able to see her interact with her peers in a totally un-selfconscious way. I found that she is older than I think of her, I found that 10 year olds are more mature than I have given them credit for. And I found that she is still kind to her friends who aren't quite as grown up as she is.
It went well, and the girls had a good time. I embarrassed them a bit, and they rolled their eyes at me. Mostly I spent my time keeping Little Sprout away from them.
It was good, and now I want to sleep. I need to recover....
