emma's first sleepover

...sort of. Emma and her best friend Madeline have been contemplating the idea of a sleepover for a while and they decided to give it a try tonight. They had tons of fun playing with sidewalk chalk, playing games on the computer and swimming in the dark. All was great until bedtime (10:00...super late for 4 year olds ;) ) when Emma got a little freaked out and suddendly had a stomach ache/itchy skin/madeline wasn't being quiet enought/etc. and called me to come pick her up. Luckily I was right down the road at Target so I went right away to pick her up and by the time I had gotten there, she was already asleep. I took her home anyway.....I didn't want to risk a 2am wake-up call! I had a feeling that they weren't quite ready for a sleepover, but they were so sold on the idea that we thought we'd give it a try...I think we'll have to wait a little while longer. I have to admit, I'm glad to have her home in her own bed tonight. As I was driving her home I was remembering sleepovers at Sara's house when we were in middle school, playing light as a feather and crank calling the toll free operators. I can't believe that now we all have daughter of our own who will one day be doing those things themselves. Crazy.
