Sleepovers

fatandfortyfatandforty Experienced MentorRegistered Posts: 553
Am I the only parent stupid enough to allow their kids a sleepover on a Friday night when I am (sadly) knackered! At the moment is truly sounds like I have 4 elephants upstairs. I will without a doubt want to go to sleep hours before them and will definitely want to wake up hours after them. On top of that they will then all be grumpy tomorrow from lack of sleep!!

Why do I do it to myself??

    Ahh gone are the days of sleepovers :-) I miss those days. The stuff we got up to was mental. We'd sneak some alcohol from somewhere and swig it between ourselves before getting up to some rather freaky sheet... ahhh, those were the days.

    |PRE| ?

    You mean, having sleepovers at 15 was wrong?

    OK, to the parents of the house I slept over ddn't know it was a sleep over, and they didn't know it was only me.... but still... PRE?

    Buff, it must have been you lying! Check out your 'about me'. Def says you make 500 babies a year!!

    And I am a cool Mum not Dad!

    Seems to have gone quiet upstairs now but am more worried than relieved. What are they doing?!

    Hahah, well, 2 out of 3 aint bad.. ill leave you to decide which 2. Are they all girls, chances are they're all talking about what boys they managed to kiss this afternoon in kissy catch or if they're boys, they probably are talking about what football team is the best. Failing that, you got REAL lucky, and they all fell asleep!

    This makes my sleep overs sound boring, we used to scare ourselves silly watching zombie films and then my dad would go outside and bang on the window to scare us some more :(

    We all survived the sleepover! Amazingly enough I did get REAL REAL lucky and they had all fallen asleep and then they didn't wake me up until 9am the next morning. Not so bad after all.

    MY 5 year old is asking about having sleepovers already - managed to put him off but I am dreading those days.

    Do you think I could get him to do them at his Gran's?

    (Only kidding)

    I think it is safer to let them have a sleepover in your house than let your children go on a sleepover somewhere else......well that is my experience.....when one of my sons went on one he came back with one eye browe missing...they all thought it would be fun to shave it off.:lol:

    another favourite of ours was to wait until the first one fell asleep then daampen a cinninmin (spell check please) chewing gum and stick it between their top lip and nose overnight.
    They'd wake up with a nice new burnt on moustache :-)

    It was either that or take really disturbing pictures ,,,, ahh the days

    i hate my daughter having sleepovers, only because she likes to invite the same 3 girls every time and i know what problems i am going to get from them.

    1 child is a teachers daughter and always knows best

    1 child looks at everything in the house and says "why is that there" to everything

    and 1 child never brings sleepwear (although i am sure she does) and wants to borrow my older daughters stuff, she also likes to sneak around in the night and stand at the end of your bed in a chucky like stance - scary as hell!!

    needless to say i tend to shun the conversation when she asks for a sleepover.

    I must admit I prefer my boys having sleepovers than my daughter. When my daughters' "best friend" sleeps over they always end up squabbling and then I have both of them crying all evening and the next morning. My sons are always both very surprised by this behaviour. :001_rolleyes:
