Or I could have titled his post ‘the day my 8 year old discovered face packs’!
I promised Mia she could have a friend for a sleepover and we would make it a ‘date night’.
Which basically means a movie, while eating copious amounts of chocolate and popcorn and supping on luxury hot chocolate. With PJs on and wrapped in blankets.
An eight year old’s version of Valentines!
And they had a ball. Mia was her mother’s daughter and opted for the chocolate face pack, her friend had the peel off and they giggled and ‘urgh’ed and ‘oooo’d and felt like teenagers.
And then we all curled up on my bed and watched Despicable Me 2 and giggled some more.
A pretty perfect night.
Apart from the 2.30am wake up call because they girls were STILL up giggling and chatting. Not so perfect. Neither was the grumpy 8 year old I had to handle with kid gloves two days later!
Many thanks to Claire’s for the fabulous ‘night in’ pack.
