My daughter is going to be ten soon and doesn't want a sleep over for her birthday?
My daughter has made a lot of friends this year but she turns down going to sleep overs and hasn't asked me to let any of her friends come over for a sleep over. Her cousin who is 6 months older stays regularly and she goes there a lot.
When I suggested a sleep over for her birthday she said no that she didn't want to have to deal with any grumpy friends in the morning or with girls who had nightmares but then my husband pointed out that our three youngest still wake up in the night and cry. I asked if that's what was making her hesitate and she said no. I asked her if it's because I sleep naked (I wouldn't if her friends were over, I'd have on pajamas) and she said no. I really think it's odd that a 10 year old girl doesn't want to do sleepovers (either going to her friends houses or having them over). Is this odd to anyone else?
We don't have money to do something outside the home like a pool party (one of her friends is having one the week before my daughter's birthday) or a skating party. She says she wants her friends to come over for a couple hours the day of her birthday, which is a Sunday and then she wants them to go home.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not keen on having a bunch of 10 year old girls over for the night, but for my daughter's birthday I could handle it and have fun. I'm just worried she's embarrassed by something in our home or about herself--maybe that she talks in her sleep?
