Yes, I know. I’m being facetious. I don’t pray. Ever.
HOWEVER. As we have just agreed to have a sleepover with 2 count them TWO other 5 year olds, a boy and a girl, my brain is suddenly wracking itself with anxiety and worry at how will they sleep? Will they eat what I give them? Will they watch a movie before bed or destroy my basement?
And most importantly, do I have enough vodka to get me through the evening?
I wasn’t allowed to have people over as a child. Hell, I was barely allowed to play with other kids, my mother’s upper class pretensions or paranoia’s were so strong. I always had to go to other people’s houses, and even that wasn’t until I was much older than 5.
I’m lost, and fighting my own urge, implanted by my mother, to not have these kids in my house. But I know it’s stupid and wrong and likely driven by some things I have a hunch happened to my mother. So I will suck it up, make awesome something for dinner and let them watch something vaguely illicit like Iron man, shush them to sleep around 11 and make waffles in the morning.
That being said-all of you-you who hold sleepovers, ye who have had sleepovers as a child-any tips? Aside from drinking my face off?
