I have no pictures. Not one. But I wanted to record this memory somewhere.
Madison had her very first sleepover. Not one where all the cousins get together for a family fun time., but just her and Megan. It was a success.
After the art center date (see post below), Megan came over for a sleepover. They started off by playing dress up, then Barbies, then kitchen/house. Sometime they fit supper in there. Then, we squeezed in bath time.
They shared the queen-sized bed in Madison room. I put pillows down the middle and piled on the blankets. I only had to go in there one time to warn them that it was bed time, not play time.
At 7:01am, they emerged to go to the bathroom, then raced back in the room to play Barbies. I looked at Jeremy and said we should just rent a kid in the mornings to play Barbies, and then we could sleep longer! They inhaled some Kix and continued playing – house, this time. We managed to get dressed for church somewhere in the middle of all that playing.
At church, Madison and Megan and Ellie sat with Grandma, and Jeremy and I were childless parents. I could actually focus on an entire sermon! The girls headed to Sunday school together to finish the morning off.
Then, everyone in my family (except Jen who was running in the Columbus half marathon and Nate who was volunteering) went to my parents for pancake lunch. I imagine we consumed a pancake recipe quintupled (is that how you say five times??), 36 scrambled eggs, and a couple pounds of bacon and smoked sausage each. It was good, crazy, and quite experience.
Madison cried when we had to say good-bye. Perhaps we will have to try the sleepover again….
