Ok Everyone...Send Great Thoughts my Way Tonight...It's Tyler's Birthday Slumber Party...7 Twelve Year Old Boys Are Sleeping Over...


Tyler's birthday isn't until the 18th, but we are having his annual slumber party tonight. Seven boys have rsvp'd. The limit we gave him was 5, but that obviously didn't work. Children and their parents kept calling to rsvp.
Last time when I went to pick them up after school to bring them home for the party, there were two boys who I hadn't anticipated and whose parents I have never met waiting. Their Mom's didn't call and I had no idea who they even were. Crazy.
Hopefully there aren't any 'unknown' children today, because I have no more room in the truck, we will be at full capacity. A boy and his mother called last night who Tyler didn't even invite. I told him that the boy was ivited now since I told his Mom I'd be picking him up after school.
I ordered the cake on Wednesday and Tim is picking up pizza on his way home. I'll probably pick up a cool movie or two for them. At this age, they mostly want to be left alone to play video games and watch movies. I have tons of popcorn, so we should be all set there too.
Say a little prayer for Tim. He likes a mellow quiet house, and tonight might strain his nerves a little bit.

What do you mean 7 boys are "sleeping" over......7 boys will be up all night at your house. Sleep will be minimal :) I am sure they will have a great time, just keep the popcorn coming. Happy Birthday, Tyler! (my birthday is on the 17th)

Poor Tim; perhaps you should provide Daddy with earplugs and a soothing lavender eye pillow so he'll be able to sleep...in his car. Good luck with that.

Have a great time - I don't think they'll be much sleeping going on at your house. I don't get the non-rsvpers - we just had J's bday, invited 20 kids - 11 rsvp'd but 19 showed up.

Oh, you are brave, very very brave! Hope your boy has an amazing night! Happy Birthday!

I would love to see the difference between a boy 12 year old slumber party and the girls (which is only what I have experienced) Hope it was a fun one!!!

Awh what a cool Mom. I am sure the kids will have a blast. That amazing that people actually invite themselves to your son's party. But hey that means you must throw great party.
