...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
Muted snickers-so right! I even remember being told to be quiet myself from another parent. I've spent the night in my school with students a few times-that's another experience of no sleep!
Why do we bother to call them slumber parties, when there's less of that than anything else!
Thanks, Linda! Luckily there will only be 4 "nightgowned ghosts" in our living room. I'll have all day Sunday to recover. = )
Exactly, Mary Lee! Not a whole lot of slumbering going on, but a lot of fun...for the kids. (and us parents, too, we just don't want to let on) = )
Fun and true! Nice, Bridget.
Your last line is perfect, Bridget! I remember those days.
Nicely done, Bridget! Hope all goes well :-)
Hahaha, somehow I am reminded of my daughter's friends' sleepovers in our place. Muted snickers indeed. :)
Such truth (and fun) in that little ditty, Bridget-- I hope you survived!
Sleepless hosts... oh man, mine are teenagers and it's STILL that way!
Been there, Bridget. "nightgowned ghosts" is perfect for the way these little guest flit about. They do love those flashlights, don't they?
Thanks, Monica! The sleepover was fun, too. = )
Thanks, Violet! Very little slumbering went on, but it was worth it. The girls had fun. = )
Thanks, Tabatha! We survived...and had fun. = )
Thanks, Myra! Plenty of muted snickers last night. Apparently they were playing charades at midnight. = )
Thanks, Michelle! We survive though we are all a little bleary eyed today. = )
Thanks, Irene! My teen keeps me sleepless for a host other reasons. = )
Thanks, Joyce! Yes, there was flitting happening half the night. = )
