we're going for the sleepover!

nina is at grandma and grandpas for the night! when we left she was heading upstairs in her footie pjs, toothbrush in hand. she was EXHAUSTED, too, so i'm thinking she was out before 8. but the excitement might have given her a bit of a buzz, so we'll see when we get the grandparents' report tomorrow.

last night was somewhat successful. you'll recall that i told nina that she had to sleep in her bed alone all night if she was going to spend the night at grandma and grandpas. well, she did. but she did call for nick 3 times; once she had a leg cramp that needed rubbing, once she needed to blow her nose, and he doesn't remember what the 3rd one was for. but each time she told him not to get in bed with her because she wanted to sleep by herself all night. she followed the letter of our law, but the SPIRIT was that she wouldn't wake up and ask for us at all. i guess i should have been clearer. live and learn!

but she was SO excited to sleep at grandma and grandpas today (and wake up there! and eat breakfast there! and lunch and dinner! i don't think they're going to be able to get rid of her until bedtime tomorrow :-).

well grandma and grandpa, feel free to comment and let us know how the falling asleep went!

Dad and I enjoyed having Nina over for a sleepover. She stayed up til 9:30 watching the Simpsons' movie with us. She slept thru the night all alone in her mom's old room. We were delighted by her at 7:20 am when she walked in the room carrying my waitress uniform.
