Why do they call them "sleep overs"?

Do kids actually SLEEP at a "sleep over"? Angela certainly didn't. (see my post below about what happens when the kid doesn't sleep.) I wish I could post pictures of Angela and her friend Monica doing their girly stuff last night. But I don't like to post pictures of other people's kids without their parent's permission.

Anyway, they seemed to have a good time. Then Monica went swimming with us this morning and Angela's coach invited her back "Any time you want! We'll work on your strokes!"

It's been MONTHS since Angela has had a sleep over here. I always seem toforget that when there is a friend here, she's OCCUPIED and I don't have to keep her busy. LOL

I'm glad Angela got to have some fun with a friend! :) Even if they didn't sleep! LOL I have no idea why they call them sleepovers. When Kassidy got home from her last one she slept ALL afternoon! Ahhhh I remember those days!

Once when I was about 10, I had a gaggle of girls (5) come to sleep over at my house. Around 4 a.m., my Daddy came to my room (probably for the 10th time) to see why were weren't sleeping. My best friend answered "Sleep overs are NOT for sleep". Even that young we understood just seems we forget it as we get older.

Glad to hear Angela had fun with her friend. :)

How awesome that Angela had a great play over night. I am sure she had a blast and you forgot to relax ;)
