Slumber Party


     Every time we come to visit the grandparents, my twins CANNOT get settled at night to go to sleep.  They have to sleep in the same room here, which to them, signals P-A-R-T-Y time.  No matter how physically exhausted they are, they immediately get a second wind as soon as they get into that room.  My mom and I have figured out that it usually takes them about three or four nights to finally get used to the idea of sleeping in the same room. 

     On this particular visit, it took them well over two hours to finally pass out the first three nights.  It started out with lots of chatting and giggling.  This was followed by some unexplainable thumping.  Next, we’d catch a glimpse of some little shadow trying to sneak a peak at whatever we were watching on tv.  And, of course, each time we’d go in there to try to nip it in the bud, they’d dive into their beds as if nothing was ever going on.  By looking at them, you’d think those sweet little angels couldn’t possibly be causing all that commotion we were hearing.  But, I know better and can see their little horns peaking right through those little halos. 

     Once they eventually gave in to the sandman, they were able to sleep through the entire night.  That’s not to say, though, that they slept in to make up for staying up so late the night before –OH NO!  They still were up at the first sign of day, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and raring to go.  Last night, the fourth night of our visit, was finally the night that the slumber party puttered out on the earlier side.  I guess they were just entirely too wiped out to hoop it up.  I’m pretty sure they fell asleep before their heads even hit the pillows.

     They will, without a doubt, be walking zombies by the time we leave here next Saturday.  There’s no way they can keep up this pace.  Their little minds may be telling them to party all the time, but their little bodies will be telling them a whole other story.
