Tonight is the birthday sleepover for our middle son, Mikey. Yes, his birthday was on the 6th but in order for all things to work out to his liking this was our best opportunity. You see, this boy's party needed to begin at the skate park. He is quite good at skateboarding and truly looks forward to this each year since we stumbled on to it as a party idea a few years ago...Our County skate park is free! We brought two friends back for a sleepover. I am marveling at the contrast and similarities between a boys sleepover and a girls.
Boys: Did you know that milk comes out of their noses if they laugh at the table?
Girls: Eat daintily and giggle a lot...not the kind to cause the nose traumas.
Boys: Huddle together in the bedroom and stare and yell at the game system that
they are actively using...for a very long time.
Girls: Are carefully spaced around the picnic table slyly glancing at each others
crafts as they create objects of beauty.
Boys: Wait until it would be the proper time to head to bed and then put in a very
loud smash 'em up movie...does this help them stay awake to play more games?
Girls: Put on thier pretty jammies and make up their own comfy sleeping bags and
then giggle quietly as they watch a sleepy movie...like Finding Nemo...for
Boys: Make up their own party games, don't need birthday cake(chocolate popsicles
are better), Pinata? Who needs that...unless it is at their sister's party
and they need to impress her friends.
Girls: Love a party planner and coordinator who handles the things like the pinata,
the cake, food and games.
Yes, indeed, they are created differently.
NOTE to self - cause no laughter at breakfast and possibly avoid another gross nose event.
