Tweened Out!

To all mothers of girls that have not reached the 8-11 year age bracket:  As Richard Marx would say, "Hold on to the Night, Hold on to the Memory ..."

I am officially TWEENED OUT! Yeah ... I know that's not a real word, but it's my blog, and to (mis)quote another great song, "It's my blog and I can type what I want to ..."

K Belle had a slumber party last night with 11 other 8-11 year olds. I will post more about her birthday tomorrow ... so much to say and not much time tonight.

Suffice it to say, if I never hear about The Jonas Brothers, Camp Rock, Hannah Montana, stuff 5th-going-into-6th grade boys do, and did I mention The Jonas Brothers (especially Joe), it will be too soon! Yes, I am having major issues with my daughter having an incredible crush on Joe Jonas, at her sweet, young, tender age of 11 ... but, more about that tomorrow.

12 screaming, singing, dancing girls
2 crying incidents
1 "Camp Rock" viewing
12 girls making their own pizzas
4 bags of popcorn
1 bowl of Laffy Taffys, Nerds, Shockers, and Sweetarts
4 girls still awake at 4:30 a.m.
20 times of me getting up and saying, "Be quiet and go to sleep."
2 parents almost called at midnight
Cooking pancakes for all these girls in the morning
Girls waking up at 7:00 a.m. after a night of nearly no sleep
1 cell phone almost confiscated
1 cat fight (and I don't mean actual cats)
2 hours at the pool - which included 3 scrapes, 2 minor concussions, and 2 kicks in the face
and of course, cake, and ice cream = ONE FANTASTIC PARTY!

And if that all wasn't enough, here's what we did tonight with the girls ... watched the Hannah Montana 3-D movie on Disney. Talk about fun!
As you can see, Beau can hardly contain his excitement.

I sat with my preschoolers watching Hannah Montana with those silly glasses on tonight! Was it just me or did they do absolutely nothing? Hannah Montana is ok for me but the Jonas Brothers? I'd do ok with never hearing them again. Props to you for dealing with all that and all those tweens!

Just wait until they hit the teen years! Make a mental note - no more than 5 friends sleeping over at a time. Been there done that - will NEVER do it again!!

Oh my, oh my.....please excuse me while I go lock my 7 year old back up in her room!

Funny, we all found ourself looking the same way Saturday night!

That is funny. You are a better woman than me. The night we had the two extra boys about killed me. Beau looks thrilled.
