Oh, I am in trouble

So, Ryan had his first marriage proposal. You laugh, but I think the 12-year-old who proposed was serious … and that is seriously funny.

Sophia and Ryan went to their first sleepover party Saturday night. It was very real 12-year-old girl sleepover party, complete with Paris Hilton pocketbook and perfume gifts for the guests, Sophia included. She didn't get perfume (thankfully), but she did get a pocketbook and a stuffed frog.

Here's how my two little babies ended up at a girl's sleepover party:

My husband's cousin was married Saturday and her wedding was an adult's only affair. It was a nice opportunity for us to get out, but that meant I needed to have someone watch the kids. A good friend of mine who has watched my kids about a million times, offered to take the kids overnight, but her daughter was having a sleepover party.

No way, I told her. I thought she was going to have her hands full with six 11 and 12-year-olds already and didn't need any additional kids. She persisted, saying that my kids would actually make her night much easier. She said the girls would absolutely love the babies and they'd give the girls some distraction.

Boy, oh, boy, was she right. When we picked up the kids Sunday morning I don't think they wanted to leave. Sophia had her finger nails and toe nails painted by the girls and they look so cute. Pink, purple, silver, almost every nail is a different color. It is soooo unbelievably cute. She danced with the girls, played with them and basically left the party thinking she was, in fact, a tween. I swear, after the party she was even talking in full sentences. I think this party sealed the deal, she is now more girly than I ever imagined she could be.

Ryan, on the other hand, didn't have his nails done, but he did have his first marriage proposal. Of course, I'm not in the business of marrying off my kids, so I had to let the little girl down easy. She took the news pretty well, but she did ask that he come back when he's older and marry her.

He's a charmer, what can I say. I'm sure that means trouble for me later.

I certainly hope you got pictures of the multi-colored nails! And you thought she wasn't girly! HA
