Not Sleeping Over
Something about me that you may not know is that I am a single mom, and I have raised my daughter on my own since she was born. My daughter only sees her father every other Sunday. She has only spent the night over there twice in her life. Lately she has been very interested in slumber parties. She had a friend spend the night here once, and she spends the night over my mom's house or her godmother's house once in a while, but has yet to spend the night over a friend's house. So, she got on the phone with her dad the other day, and I wasn't really listening to what she was saying, and apparently she asked to come spend the night. He has two other kids and I know that she wanted to have a slumber party with her brother and sister, but I know she was also worried about sleeping in a strange bed without her mama. She was stressing out about it for two nights, and almost backed out, but finally decided to stay the night anyway. And guess what? Oh yes, I get a phone call at 9:45 pm with her tiny little voice crying and begging me to come get her. So, my question is, what would you do? Would you tell her to suck it up and stay the night, or would you go get her. Can you guess what I did? Yup, I went and got her.
