Of daughters and sleepovers

Sweet as can be
as the flower frostings on a cake
and as dear as the heart can see
joys that only daughters can make
sending little flutters of burtterflies and bees.

Six girls gathered through the night
Six friends ready to share whatever the evening may bring
Laughters, screams and sweet little things
I wonder why it's called a slumber party
When all of them would stay up through the night
Playing games, watching movies, exchanging gossips
Painting nails, doing hairs and every other things they can think about.

It's my daughters second time to have a slumber party for her birthday. I remember very well the first time. It was totally stressed out. Having six girls together for 12 hours is more than I can handle. This time I just have to relax a bit and let my daughter do most of the planning. I should say that it was better this time. I still was not able to sleep because of the noise but compared with all the screaming on the first time, this time they are more subdued.
Preparing dinner, breakfast and lunch for six girls isn't a walk in the park either. But I've surrendered cooking to buying prepared and reheatable food. Pizza, fried chicken, cut up vegetables and fruits, pancakes, macaroni and cheese, nachos, and burgers. The only thing I prepared from scratch is spring rolls which they enjoyed immensely.

*sigh* I wish I had slumber parties when I was a child.
