begging asking for a sleepover since she was four years old. No joke.
Friend sleepovers have been a hot topic as of late. Can’t blame the allure of staying up late, sleeping at a friend’s house and munching on popcorn while watching movies.
Heck, my friend had a girls sleepover for her 35th birthday and it was so freaking fun (highly suggest!).
At the same time, we don’t need our kids growing up any quicker than they should.
So what age is appropriate?
Honestly, there’s no right answer.
It’s all about your kid and your comfort level. Sarah had her first sleepover at five, though her bff came to our place; in honesty, I wasn’t comfortable with her sleeping out.
Now, two years later, largely feel the same. There are a total of two, maybe three friends, where I’m OK with the occasional sleepover. They all live within five minutes of me, too.
Why you ask?
It’s not so much about the friend. It’s about the parents.
When it comes to sleepovers, you have to know where your child is going and who’s in that house.
I know that sounds obvious, but it’s easy to make assumptions that we’re all safe.
I don’t. You can’t.
So, Sarah might whine and complain that this person slept at this person’s house and you know what? Oh well. #momlife #momminainteasy
Late nights in can be equally as fun… have everyone bring over their pjs, order pizza, make popcorn and even watch a movie in sleeping bags!
Is it too soon to kick out my husband so I can invite my girlfriends over for this? 🙂
Sarah and her bff, Allie, are seriously the cutest… love them in their holiday pjs!
