It's 3am, do you know where your kids are????


Last night, I had been asleep for a good 2-3 hours after showering and being dressed in next to nothing and being under my comforter and sheets, when all of the sudden.....

My daughter comes into my room with her long time best friend (one of the original 10 that she was super good friends with from the days of the Methodist Youth Group days)....and, says, "Mom! Mom! Look, it's Kirby!!!"

I think I remember looking towards them....and saying something to the effect, "Well, hi, Kirby" but with eyes still closed and a bit of a yawn mixed it with it. I think Kirby said something like, "I can't believe you just woke up your Mom!!" Kriby was always like that...and was always amazed at my daughter's brisk moves.

I wasn't even expecting her back here b/c she had told me that she was going to spend the night at Kirby's Grandma's house. Oh, well... I did sleep better knowing that they were here.

It took them a while to settle down... My daughter confiscated more t.p. from my bathroom and one of my pillows that wasn't under my head.

It is early in the morning as I am writing this.... and the girls are asleep. It is like old times with them both here. I'll probably go to the store in a bit to get some items to make breakfast for them this morning, as was my tradition then... scrambled eggs with cheese, hasbrowns with onions and bacon, and biscuits or toast. Just like the old days of the slumber parties....

At any rate, I am glad that they found their way home to my home last night!!

Hope you're having a great morning!!!!

slamminscott - Isn't it great to have friends like that???

jayR63 - I had a small sampling. Those girls can handle it better than me....and no other meal is needed for the day after absorbing those calories....however, for someone who has a 114 cholesterol at 46 years old, I think I am doing pretty good for myself!! Moderation is the key!!

frbnkslady - B/c I was going through the divorce and other issues between her and her Dad, we moved around a lot when she was little. As she was getting her friends, I made it a point to at least stay in the same area if we needed to move b/c a lease was up, etc. I am thankful that she has maintained these friendships through the past 10 years even though we changed cities b/c of a job promotion. Hopefully, they will still be around when she is much older.

I moved around quite a bit myself while growing up. Of all the friendships I've made over the years, it's the only one has stayed strong. George (his nickname) and I have been good friends for over 20 years.

We still get together at least once a month to hang out, order pizza, talk about the good ol days, etc.

I always loved it when my son had certain friends over for the night. He has one special friend that he still keeps in touch with, even though they are both grown. She comes all the way out here to visit him and vise versa. My son practically lived at her house for the summer, and her, at ours. I knew if he was there, they we both held accountable for everything, same as at my home. I never worried either way. It is nice to be able to have friends still from child hood. Not many people can actually say that. I cannot. I had moved so much growing up. Make friends, move, loose them. I still think of them, but they are gone and only to be remembered.
