The party was fun! I had no idea that 5 girls would be that loud. They were like wild Indians....wresting, putting their legs over the stair banisters, trying to pull each others pants down....uh yeah. lol The one little girl is older but M knows her from daycare/before&after care so she came too. I let her log on the computer to show M this girl thing that she wanted her to join. I'm not too big on it so I sat there the whole time supervising and the little girl did not want to get off the computer. I had to make her go outside with the rest of us.
All of the girls had fun and M was just so thrilled to have all of her friends over! After everyone left The Husband played princess monopoly with M and A. The game was over.....M was getting tired, A text her brother and I could tell she wasn't to sure about staying the night. I asked if she wanted to call her mom and she did. She is on a antibiotic for a sinus infection and she said its giving her a rash so she wanted to go home. They only live like 3 miles away so her dad came and got her around 10pm. M was disappointed and I realized that I will need therapy whenever M starts dating because I feel her pain very clearly. I was sad for her. I tried to remind her (and myself) that M wont stay at any one's house yet so its not a big deal.
Saturday morning came and we were getting ready to go shopping, run errands and get groceries when A's mom called and asked if M wanted to come over for the day. She said that A wasn't done playing and would love to have M come hang out. So I asked which she would rather do....go there or come shopping with me and she chose to go there. I dropped her off at 10:30am and she stayed until 6pm! I went shopping all day by myself and got to look at every-thing-in-the-store! lol The Husband was working but got home shortly before I did so we hung out for a little bit alone before M got home. M had her cell phone (yes, she is 7yrs old with a phone) so we talked several times that day to see if she was ready to come home and I talked to A's mom too. I think I was ready for her to come home before she was.
It was a nice day and it made up for the disappointment of no real sleepover at the party.
Adding some color outside (when I'm not so thrifty!)
