I was smarter this time.
I had activities planned AND I made them go to bed at 10:00pm. Smart.
For the girls, we did a spa.
I got out every single shade of nail polish I could find from every one of our bathroom cabinets and drawers. I put out a selection of lotions and face masks and we filled the bath up with bubbles for the girls could soak their feet.
“WAY better than going somewhere,” Payton said.
And I don’t think it can be called a spa without lit candles, setting the mood for relaxation.
While I got things ready to finish their nails…
…the girls sat on the bed and watched a movie.
I painted tiny toenails and tried my very hardest to stick nails on itty bitty fingers.
Meanwhile, the little kids were outside on the trampoline.
At 9:30, we sent all of them to their rooms so they could read some books before lights out.
This was only our 2nd sleepover ever.
Eventually…we’ll get this.
