Davis' First Sleep Over

Tonight is Davis' first sleep over at a friends house. Even though it is just down the street, I am a little sad about it. I was trying to figure out why it was bothering me so much and the only thing I have been able to come up with is the NICU. The only other time Davis has slept out of our house when we were here was during his 7 week NICU stay. Even though in many ways it seems like that was forever ago, in other ways, it seems so recent. Sometimes I still see him as the fragile preemie and I just want to wrap my arms around him and protect him. I hope that over time the NICU time will become less memorable and I'll be able to let him grow up without being one of those hovering parents.

Wow his first sleep over! What a milestone. Be sure to let me know how he does! You are a brave mamma. I hope he has a great time.

Wow, five years old and already having sleepovers! I read in a parenting book recently to use reverse psychology on kids with sleepovers: tell them before they go that they have to stay up all night watching movies and only eat candy and it will ensure that they do no such thing :) I don't know if it works, but it made me laugh :) Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day!
