For some reason my husband said one of the neighbor girls could spend the night last night. I was taking a nap when he okayed this because I would have said no. For one I was tired and knew I'd still be tired in the morning after a long day yesterday. I've been having headaches a lot lately which are not fun and this girl doesn't believe in following our rules and is very noisy.
So she comes over last night and it's already after 10pm so I send them all to bed. My husband said they could stay up a little talking. He had to yell at them to go to sleep at 11:30 when he went to bed.
At 12:45am I heard some banging and noise and it was the girls with the lights on, jumping on the beds. My girls know better. They also trashed the bedroom (every toy, blanket, pillow on the floor.). I yelled at them to get to bed.
This morning they had to clean up the mess they made and we have errands to run. At 10:30am (after the girls cleaned up the mess) we told her it was time to come home and she started begging to come with us and saying she can't go home because it's too early and she'll get in trouble for waking up her mother.
For crying out loud. It's almost lunch time. If she hadn't been here we would have left at 9am when we got up. Which is kind of late for us. We probably would have gotten up and gone to have breakfast at 8am.
Now my girls are cranky from lack of sleep and this girl is whining we're going to get her into trouble and refused to leave. My husband almost had to physically drag her home. Ugh (she's almost 8 for the record).
Her older sister doesn't act like that and always behaves when she is here (she just spent the night on Friday and then my middle dd spent the night at their house on Saturday and we wanted to leave to go do something at 8:30 but couldn't get anyone to answer to door to get her until almost 10am--it wasn't my idea to let her spend the night knowing we had stuff to do early).
I already told my husband this girl does not spend the night here any more. She's too disruptive and disrespectful.
Anyone else deal with these kinds of kids?

No, I haven't had the friends of my daughter's act up or cause any trouble, they're all pretty sweet. I have dealt with the staying forever and not being able to get ahold of their parent's to return their kid. Overnight visits almost always turn into weekend stays and that gets old. One set of parent's is really bad about never wanting their kid back. I say we can drop her off at 4 and she says um how about 5? I wanted to say how about you come get her yourself right now ha-ha. It all works out ok though and the parent's are really nice other than that. I have told my girl's that sleepovers would happen more often if it didn't turn into the kids staying for days at a time however.
