One of my 10 yo daughters went to a sleepover the other weekend. She has since asked me if she can host one here. I am not keen. The idea of a gaggle of girls (as in 4-5 extra ones) in my home overnight doesn't thrill me (I'm perfectly willing to have as many as she wants during the day) and I really don't feel up to ensuring that no accidents happen. Yes, I'm probably a wimp.
Apart from this one mother who invited all of then (they're a group of 5 friends) and who I consider to be a saint to have handled things from 6 pm Friday to 3 pm Saturday, none of the other mothers has been forthcoming with sleepover invitations. I suspect I may not be alone :)
Anyway, what I wanted to know is how many of you would be happy to do it and do you do this often? Am I really being a wimp? The only family time we seem to get is at the weekends and my DH has often to work even then ...
