Gillian had three friends over for a sleepover last night. They've all been friends for a long time (long for 11 year old standards!)
The nice thing about 11 year olds is that they are basically independent. I could just let them have their fun and I could go do my thing. The other side of this coin is, that as laid back as they can be, they can also be REALLY loud and REALLY rowdy until REALLY late!!!! I remember going down, for the third time, at 1am, just to ask them to quiet down a little.......I had my bedroom door closed and they were still loud and clear. Hehehehe
They told me they stayed up until around 2:30am-3:00am. Fortunately, I was asleep by then.
They're awake now, just finished hot cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and they're messing around until their parents come to pick them up. They've had a great time. No sleep, but a great time.
I think I'll be spending the day recuperating!!!!
