Well, another first in our household. The boys had their first sleep over this weekend. We originally were planning on just our nephew Kaden, who is in town for the week from California, but after his birthday party Joshua asked to spend the night also. And after Jenny told me that Josh has never wanted to spend the night at anyone else's house before, being the COOL parents that we are, I made the decision for her ;-)! What's one more kid in the mix? So we threw matching shorts on all of them (thank goodness Joshua is so skinny that he can fit in Evan's shorts), threw a mattress on the floor in the basement, piled on the pillows and blankets and told the kids they could play Mario ALL. NIGHT. LONG!
But around 11:15 they were still going strong, so Jeremy turned off Mario and the boys were asleep within minutes! Jeremy stayed down there with the boys and slept on the couch. But of course, as soon as they awoke, Mario was back on! HA!
And what is a sleep over without a big pancake breakfast!
I can't believe that we are entering this new phase in our parenting journey! Evan is becoming such a big kid! I have a feeling that there will be more sleepless nights in our near future and many more pancake breakfasts! When did my kids become old enough? They are growing up WAY to fast!
