A Sleepover Gone Wrong


Billy invited me
to spend the night,
it was great fun – 
we had a pillow fight!

When we went to sleep, 
I don't know why,
I wanted to go home 
and started to cry.


Featured: A new friend
with his own sleeping bag.

You make the sweetest crafts. I love this gentle piece. And your poem. You know what, I'm 63 years old, but I can still remember wanting to cry and go home when I stayed over at my grandma's house as a little girl. There is no place like home with momma at that time of day with its familiar routines to comfort.

Wishing you a beautiful day, Amalia!

Your little sleeping bag and boy are so, so precious! And the poem---I can't tell you how many times my young daughters had friends sleep over, and then they wanted to go home in the middle of the night! The worst was when they had friends up at the lake two hours away! Those poor parents!!!

Oh, that is so poignant Amalia. I remember my children going to their first sleepovers, and then feeling shy and missing home. What a sweet way you have to express it so beautifully.

i like it

Margie said...

Cute! I must confess that I always sleep better in my own bed!

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart said...

aww... sweet little buddy peeking from the covers.

All but two of our 13 grandchildren frequently come for sleepovers that last for a day to even a week. But we have two granddaughters that just aren't comfortable being away from home. They are cousins from different families. They try but usually change their mind.

Interesting how different and individual kids can be. We never pressure them but love on them for their uniqueness.

So nice stopping by, Amalia! :)

Becki said...

I don't know which is cuter. The poem or your new friend tucked in his sleeping bag. :) Who would love that little one?!?

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

So cute and so true! We are going to try our youngest grandson for a sleepover soon and I hope he doesn't get cold feet before bedtime. :)
