Sleepover

Parker joined my boys in watching a movie and munching on popcorn.

Caleb shoves fistfuls of popcorn into his mouth. Seriously, I just fed him dinner!

Collin finally got sick of using his hands, and just brought the popcorn bowl directly to his mouth. You can guess how everyone else reacted to this!

After the movie, Chris and the boys played Wii Just Dance. Chris is showing the boys how to do the macarena.

We didn't plan on having an overnight sleepover so young. But when one of Caleb's classmates needed a babysitter for the night, we accepted. After last week's invitation snub, we thought an overnight friend might be appreciated.

I spent days dreading the event. Would we get any sleep? Would he get scared in the middle of the night? Would he get along with the boys? I'd have to say, it went much better than I anticipated. Parker was very easy going, even a tad bit intimidated by the sure volume of males in our house.

The boys started the evening with a movie and popcorn. I brought down the bowl and they devoured it within minutes. Being that Parker has only one sibling, he didn't know that they Wood boys learned early, "Eat fast, or don't eat at all." But, as Parker saw the popcorn quickly dwindle, he began shoving fistfuls into his mouth.

Movie watching was followed by wii playing. Around 9 p.m., I encouraged the boys to go to bed (mostly because I was ready to sleep). Evidently, the merriment continued until 11ish (except for Caleb who fell fast asleep). Unfortunately, the party resumed around 6 a.m. Sigh.

I'm definitely not ready for a sleepover every weekend, but we're all pleased that Caleb spent time with a friend. That's worth the sleep deprivation!
