Last Friday night we let Sarah have a little sleepover. Caity and Cheyanne were going to spend the night with her to make up for the fact that she missed Colton's birthday sleepover a couple of weeks before.
Peter and Dan were at a Boy Scout lock-in so it was the perfect opportunity for a little girls-only fun.
Sarah was so excited about this sleepover. She talked about it for days and even made a list of activities:
In case you can't read this list it says:
Talk with girls
Two days before the party Sarah told me she wanted to bake a cake.
"Bake a cake?" I questioned.
"For the party," was her reply.
"I'm busy trying to cook dinner now. Maybe I'll get a cake at the store on Friday."
"O.k. but make sure Hannah Montana is on the cake."
"Hannah Montana? I'm not getting a Hannah Montana cake for the sleepover!" Those things are expensive just because they've got Miley's face plastered all over them.
"I was thinking just a plain little cake," I offered.
"How about one with flowers?" she grudgingly countered.
So even though this was just a regular sleepover and not a birthday party, we had birthday cake.
And the girls did everything on Sarah's list - even sleep. So everyone was happy - even Mommy.
