It's kind of a big deal for a four and a six year old to spend the night at a new place with relatives they rarely see, but these two were super cool about it.
Now, i'm not really a kid person (and god knows my husband isn't either) but we love these two and we had a great 24 hours in their company.
There's a good playground close by, and after playing there we went for coffee and hot chocolate across the street
Lots of movies were watched and lots of games were played (pizza and movies? basically a regular Saturday night at our place!)
One thing that surprised me was how easily we got them to bed.
They're usually pretty good at making a big fuss about that.
I guess we did trick them a little, but whatever works, right?
And who knew that kids still wanted bedtime stories?
I was unprepared for that, so all i had was the collected fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen, but lucky for me, he worked just fine.
With no tears, no injuries and no "i want my mommy" at any point, i'm inclined to call this sleepover a success!
Ps. After Rasmus picked up the kids, we went to the shop.
Lots had happened since last time, see for yourself.
