Maybe this makes me a bad parent, but I hate those parties. As we’re driving to them, I always have an internal debate on how short a time I can get away with staying. Two hours? One hour? I’m not above bribing the girl to get her to leave early.

When you send an invite for an adult party, you never get 100% acceptance. But what didn’t dawn on us before sending the invite was this: we were offering up a FREE NIGHT OF BABYSITTING. Of course everyone was going to accept.

She didn’t like the movie Brave , she didn’t want strawberry cupcakes (which happened to be the best I’ve ever tasted), the wood floor was too slippery, she didn’t like the dress she was wearing, someone called her a crybaby (imagine my shock), she didn’t want to go to bed, she wanted to sleep next to so-and-so but still wanted to be in the middle of the bed – and on and on and on .

A handful of the girls got a kick out of running up and down our stairs. I kept an eye on them every now and then to make sure everyone had mastered the art of stairs, and they seemed fine. But as the night went on, their crazy meter spiked.

At one point, I was standing at the top of the stairs, watching a procession of girls run down the stairs. One particularly rambunctious girl lost her footing and started tumbling head first down the stairs.

Picture me, 7 months pregnant , standing at the top of the stairs, trying to maneuver a cheap baby gate closed. You know, one of those baby gates that won’t close until you pull it out from the wall, and then it closes perfectly – but the minute you put it back in position, it gets stuck with the bar halfway up.

So just as she’s starting to head down the stairs after the baby gate, I pick her up under her armpits and carry her to the next room – even though I’m not exactly supposed to be dead-lifting 40 lbs at the moment.

Here’s what hit me later, after the adrenaline dissipated: Generally, kids listen to direct requests from adults they don’t know very well – even BETTER than when they’re with their parents. This wasn’t the first instance that night that Drusilla disobeyed a direct, clear order. If she didn’t listen to us at all, I hope that doesn’t mean she NEVER listens to her parents.

There’s still time- CANCEL THIS PARTY RIGHT NOW if your child is under the age of 10 years old. I’ll be quite honest—the first half of my eight-year-old’s sleepover party was delightful, harmonious, and memorable. Sure, have the kids bring their jammies, sleeping bags, pillows, and stuffed animals. Let them eat popcorn and watch movies on the floor. But get their asses out of there before bedtime. It’s not worth it. Do not under any circumstances allow the children to “slumber” at your home.

You might think I’m awfully un-fun and anti-sleepover. Not at all! I think a one-on-one sleepover is great fun for third graders. But a party? Hell no. Save that shit for middle school, when pretty much everything sucks anyway, and spare yourself the drama and hassle.

**So what do  you  think? Am I being too negative about sleepover parties for third graders? Am I a giant, whiney wuss? When do you think kids should have sleepovers with more than one friend ? And do you have a sleepover horror story?

All I can think of is how my mom let me have them all the time. She was a saint. Their is no way I ever want to do this! At least I only have one girl and I don’t think boys really do sleepovers – do they???

For all that is holy: I have just read this Blog twice and have laughed so hard that tears are running down my face. Here are my favorite phrases from the Blog:
“Cancel right now. You don’t need to read further.”
*Send their ass home ASAP
*They’ll be dropping like flies”
*What the everlasting F*ck have we done?

Now what is interesting is that I actually witnessed the entire party – from euphoric beginning to abysmal end. I came upstairs from my “haven” at 11 PM to find my granddaughter sitting on my daughter’s lap sobbing because everyone was “dropping like flies.” I went back to my room, texted my son for comfort, and did not fall asleep for almost two hours after, as I was so upset about my granddaughter’s sadness. So, why do I laugh, you ask? Time heals bad memories…………………

Having three girls, I’ve done the sleepover thing many times. My advice: Don’t fool yourself into thinking anyone is going to actually sleep – including you! Have some wine, yes, but also stock up on your favorite coffee for the next day!

Another idea – My hubby travels a lot for work and, therefore, accrues a lot of hotel/airline points. My December baby wanted a pool party last year, but, of course couldn’t have one outdoors in December. (Her 2 sisters are summer babies and she find this exceptionally unfair.) So, using my hubs’ points, we booked a hotel party sleepover. 2 adjoining rooms – 1 for me & 1 for them. It was great! Still no sleep, but also no clean up for me!!!!! We jumped in the pool, had pizza delivered, watched movies, etc. She wants to do it again this year!

Your sleepover hosts will organise challenges and team games and you also have the option of playing laser at no extra cost so why not get your friends together and organise the greatest fun filled activity night. Suitable for all age groups.

Stricktly no alcohol for under 18's. Passport or Driving Licence ID required. If safety is compromised in any way, we reserve the right to end the sleep over immediately. We reserve the right to refuse entry. All customers must read all our safety notices.

A word that conjures hours of games, giggles and late-night movies to children, but mostly worrisome questions for parents. Is my child old enough? Is a sleepover safe? Will anyone sleep? If I host, what do I need to know first? Thankfully, Circle of Moms members who are old hands at sleepovers have shared plenty of tips for first-timers.

What's the right age to start sleepovers? “ It depends on their maturity ," says Barbara S. "My daughter has been sleeping over since she was 6 but my boys ages 5 and 6 are not ready to sleep over at their friend’s houses yet.” While many Circle of Moms members started letting their children attend sleepovers at around the ages of 6 to 8, several moms shared that their children started sleeping over at the houses of close family friends as young as age 4.

It seems like a given, but it's worth saying: Make sure you know and trust the parents hosting the sleepover. As Tish T. shares: “At 10, we still don't sleepover somewhere unless I know everyone and have all the info on what is going to go on....a little protective, maybe. I would rather err on the side of caution .” Allie M. expresses a similar view: "You have to step back for a moment and look at where your child wants to sleep, do you trust this family, do they do things that you mirror yourself...would you worry about what is being talked about? How do the parents treat their children?"

If you're the parent hosting, be prepared to tell other parents the full plan for the evening. Circle of Moms members also advise getting parents' mobile numbers in case of emergencies and checking whether any of the guests are sleepover newbies. As Meredith T. advises: “ Find out if the other ones have had sleepovers or not …my 10 year-old had a sleepover party and we had to deliver a 10 year-old child home because she wanted her own bed.”

While some parents believe coed sleepovers are fine for very young children, most argue that both boys and girls just shouldn't be sleeping over together. As Tracy H. shared: "Co-ed sleep overs are inappropriate...even at young ages." For a little girl's birthday, she suggests inviting "all friends for the party, then have the boys leave at night ."

When you're hosting your first sleepover, keep it small. “I would underestimate how many you can handle ,” cautions Jen G. “Six little girls doesn't sound so bad in broad daylight, but when they are wide awake at midnight that's a LOT.”

Carol C. agrees: “All I can say is, think small ! Three friends would be the max I would consider for sleeping over. One is easy, two is tough because they can easily exclude the third person. Three is probably good to feel like a party.”

Wondering how much you should be around to help lead games and crafts? Many Circle of Moms members suggest letting your child's wishes guide you. As Sharron S. explained: "Give them enough space to where they feel they are in control, with your daughter being the ‘leader’ so to speak. You should ask her if she wants you to be involved or if she wants to take charge herself.” Donna H. concurs: “Your daughter probably has some expectation of what she wants."

When you're a kid, one of the most fun and exciting things you can do is to host a sleepover. The hard part is making a plan and ironing out all the details. Once your friends arrive, as long as you have some fun ideas up your sleeve, you'll be on your way to having a fun and unforgettable night. If you want to know how to host a sleepover, see Step 1 to get started.

A Sleepover party requires lots of snacks and munchies. If you are serving dinner, provide something light and easy. Pick something that even the most pickiest eaters would like. Keep sugary and caffeinated drinks to a minimum since there will be plenty of sugar in the snacks and desserts, and we don’t want the kids staying up all night! Plus, what better way to wash down some cake than with a cold glass of milk! Some easy Slumber dinner ideas:

Dessert is a must at any Slumber party! Create mini Slumber Party Cupcakes for each guest. Slumber Party cupcakes are completely edible and can be created by using mini Vanilla cookies as heads and draping the body of the cupcake with Airheads as the blanket. Finish face and hair with icing.

After crafts and desserts, play extra party games to get rid of the energy and sugar highs that some kids might experience. The key is to keep them moving from activity to activity every 15 minutes. Some fun games are:

If kids are old enough to use a spatula, consider having a breakfast where kids can make their own pancakes . This can get messy but kids enjoy the cooking, experimenting and coming with their own concoctions. Put a large electric skillet in the center of the table. Pass around one bowl with batter where each person can take turns cooking their pancakes, and a small tray with assorted fillings. Have fresh fruits, toasts, juices ready so kids can munch and eat other things while they wait for their turn for the pancakes.

Sleepover, slumber party or pajama party, whatever you call it, it's always a blast! Sleepover invitations are great to give all the party details - what to bring - what you'll do - what time to pickup the kids.

Hand delivered mail is quite uncommon, but if the invitees are neighbourhood friends, this is a fun way to invite them – a balloon filled with confetti  and a rolled-up invitation inside. They’ll have to pop the balloon to read the invite – but that’s the fun part!

To sleep over or not to sleep over — that is the question. Unfortunately there is no “right answer” and opinions on the subject are varied and subjective. This leaves many parents feeling conflicted and anxious about their decision.

When my third-grade daughter received her very first invitation to a sleepover birthday party, I had no idea what to do. My long-held rule was no sleepovers until age 12. Yet I found myself wavering, debating whether to say yes since so many of her good friends were spending the night. I have since learned that many mothers allow their children to attend sleepovers, sometimes as young as age five. However, there are equally as many mothers who stand firm with their “no sleepovers” rule. Searching the internet yields no clear answers on the “best” or “most appropriate” time to say yes to a sleepover — only a wide array of strong opinions.

Parents who have misgivings about sleepover parties cite many concerns. Some fears center around the possibility of poor supervision, molestation by an older male in the home, handguns in the house and potential bullying. Other concerns are less dramatic — but probably more realistic — such as sleep deprivation or concern that your child might get homesick and upset at 2:00 a.m.

Know your child: What might be an easy night for some children might not be for others. Children who have occasional anxiety, are dependent upon routine, get shy or homesick easily or have difficulty with bedtime at home may have more challenges with spending the night away.

Knowing the hosts: One of the most critical deciding factors for many parents is how well they know the hosting family. The level of friendship between the two families involved seems to increase confidence and comfort level with the type of discipline, supervision and attentiveness that will be given to your child.

Personal values: Another factor is our own personality and parenting lens. Our sense of fear and anxiety, how we were raised, our value system and our philosophies on child-rearing all shape our parenting decisions. When it comes to sleeping over, we should neither apologize for our own decisions nor judge another person for theirs.

Some may ask, why sleep over at all? Bonds of friendship can often be strengthened during sleepover parties. Allowing your child to experience a new situation and a change in routine helps to promote flexibility and confidence. In addition, sleepovers can offer your child opportunities to enhance their social skills and gain independence which enhances self-esteem.
