I’ll take a sleepover, for 14, please

Posted by Danny

It’s the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and two days ago we decided to have a sleepover.  I’m not sure how we ended up with 14 girls, but we did.  Ages ranged from 8 – 15.  I say knock it out all at once!

Several folks at work asked me today, “Why in the world would you have 14 girls spend the night at your house?  Are you nuts?”

These are my top ten reasons:

Number 10:  Only one night of sleep deprivation.

Number 9:  Seeing this chaos is great birth control for Jesse.

Number 8:  I wanted to support the economy through significant Frito-Lay and Coke purchases.

Number 7:  It’s something to blog about.

Number 6:  I’ll get caught up on all the Justin Bieber gossip.

Number 5:  It’s a manly excuse to watch the Judy Moody movie.

Number 4:  The opportunity to use the mammoth amount of Boy Scout popcorn I bought last year.

Number 3:  It’s good practice for staying up on New Year’s Eve.

Number 2:  Hair, nails and makeup – all free.

And the number 1 reason to have 14 girls sleep over tonight:  I’m racking up major daddy cool points.

    You have always been a awsome dad! but it’s most thoughtful of you to think of Uncle Jesse, did you bar the doors so he coudn’t get out?
    I’m impressed you got to work!

      Oh, he wasn’t here all night. Early on and then returned at midnight to take DJ and her friends for a late night treat at the i hop!

  2. Oh my goodness. One extra kid sleeping over is enough for us, but then, we have two middle school boys…adding a third can get rough.

  3. They are like kittens. After five or six, it doesn’t really matter. But that’s a lot of pancakes to fix the next morning.
