Ugh! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately! Derrick is traveling, the girls have both been sick, I’ve been losing my mind … wait. These are the makings for a wonderful, separate post. Yep. You’ll get to hear all about our ‘daddy-less days’ soon enough.
In the meantime, I thought you would like to know that Paige recently had her very first official sleepover. Not to be confused with her sleep study. Which we stupidly called a “sleepover” with Mommy. But, on the plus side we unintentionally set the bar SUPER low for any future sleepovers.
Needless to say, this adventure FAR exceeded any expectations. We had my youngest niece Addison (or, Addie-Honey, as we call her) over to stay the night, and fun was had by all. Except maybe occasionally by Blair, who quickly (and unwillingly) took on the role of ‘younger sister.’ Paige decided she didn’t want Blair to play with them, which led to lots of tears (for Blair), a few timeouts (for Paige) and lots of “why are they crying” questions (from Addison).
Ahem. Welcome to our house, Addie-Honey.
The girls were very, very good. Derrick and I got to have our first experience of sitting in the living room and listening to the sweet sound of little-girl giggles well past their bedtime. Which, for preschoolers, is really only until around 9:00 pm or so. He left basically in the middle of the night, so it was nice to have an additional snuggle bunny the next morning.
I think it was a success. The Feldmann girls were melting down and throwing fits the next day. And apparently Addison got home, tossed herself onto her mommy’s lap and sobbed. Her mommy said she was tired. I think my girls’ probably stressed her out. Or, most likely, a combination of both.
Sleepover. Feldmann style. You’ll have so much fun, we’ll make you cry.
