Last night we celebrated Mr. Wizard’s 9th birthday with his first ever sleep over. He informed me that the term “‘slumber party’ is way too girly, and ‘sleep over’ isn’t much better”. I tried to come up with an acceptable alternative. Pajama party? No. Pillow party? No. I came up with nothing, so “sleep over” it was.
He had invited four boys, but only three could come and the plan was to have pizza for dinner, play a little on the Wii, watch a movie, sleep and then send them on their merry ways at promptly 9:00 am the next day.
