A 10 Year Old Sleep Over…

Posted by in Family on July 16, 2011 0 comments

Meet new parent, crack open bottle of champagne, drink, get to know new parent, next parent arrives – she just wants water, boys running amok, parents leave as I finish bottle, boys watch DVD, order pizza, told it will take 45-50 minutes, boys get antsy at 50 minutes, make call to pizza shop at 1 hour 10 minutes, told should be 5-10 minutes more, pizza arrives at 8pm, vacuumed down the hatches, light candles on chocolate brownie cake, chocolate brownie cake vacuumed down, collect wood in rear laneway for chiminea, roast marshmallows in chiminea, run out of marshmallows for roasting, great fire going – no one interested, boys go inside for second DVD, a clean up and watch my own DVD in my room, boys want popcorn, I make popcorn, give them rules with popcorn – they make a mess, they sleep in it (no popcorn fights 🙂 ) Third DVD starts, put timer on so that they go to sleep after 3rd DVD finishes and TV turns off automatically, ask them to clean teeth and put PJs on, boys comply. Noise coming from the gallows – little brother instigator, remove little brother from the party to sleep with me, little brother not happy but goes to sleep before the others. Still hear their TV at 1am… someone disabled TV turning off by itself… I put it on sleep for 30 minutes more… sleep time for four angels.

Wake up at 8am, make French Toast as one mother said she would pick up her son at 9am to go to church. It’s 9.12am – she’s still not here. Why? I could have slept in a little more…
