Other than the school shopping. I am so ready for my children to go back to school. Both of them are wanting their friends to sleep over and my son's friends running in and out of the house during the day is beginning to get tiring. We didn't get to sleep until after midnight last night, because no body wanted to go to bed. My two youngest are only a year a part. The like to aggravate one another even when they don't have friends over! Therefore, they are constantly arguing with one another. My daughter likes to aggravate her brother when he has friends over and my son likes to aggravate my daughter when she has friends over. For our own sanity we have reduced the sleepovers to one night a week for each one. Which is still a challenge to get through. I think they need to get back to school, because they are spending too much time together. It has become almost impossible for them to be in the same room with one another for more than one minute without being at each others throats.
I think some parents just don't understand I have two children who have sleep overs or know what is like to have two children having sleep overs. My son's friend's parents told him Adam couldn't stay there again until he spent the night over here. It's not like I don't allow him to stay. He stayed here twice last week. He stayed here twice last week and my daughter had a sleep over. That makes three nights of the week we had sleep overs here. It's not like he's an only child and is the only child having sleep overs. We have to split it up and make it fair for everyone. I definitely don't want kids here seven days a week. Then my son has one friend who is never allowed to have sleep overs which is totally unfair. They want other people to keep their kid, but they won't allow anyone to stay there. It makes you wander why they do they not allow anyone to sleep over. He had another friend's parents do the same thing. I don't want to be that mean parent who won't allow anyone in there house or have anyone stay there. Thank God, he is no longer allowed to play with him, because of some bad habits he has. I'm getting a little tired of the parents who won't allow anyone in their house or their kids to have sleep overs. Kids need to be kids and be able to play and have fun with other kids, it is all part of growing up and being a child. It's just beginning to be exhausting that us and one other kid's parents are the only ones who allow sleep overs.
There's only four more weeks before school is back in session. Let's see if I can make it without going insane.
