To think that sleepovers should have another name

Nobody sleeps anyway, they just annoy the host parent so much that they won't have them anymoreangry Then they find someone elses to stay at. Instead of sleepover, i suggest Annoy-a-thon.

We just call them stayawakeovers.

When I was little it was called 'staying the night with a friend'.

Sleepovers are basically
Jetlag without leaving your house.

Brilliant invention hmm

And this is why I shall never, ever host one! Will happily have all manner of kids at the house during the day but once 8pm comes they just have to go!

I used to call them stay-up-and-get-bad-tempered-overs

Drives me nuts - DD is like the she devil the following day.

Seems like going to play/ hang out/ have tea at someone's house is no longer sufficient they now have to stay the night and have a bloody mini break.

Teengirls were the worst - the bitchiness!

I was the worst mother because I never allowed sleepovers (at ours or anywhere else) during term-time. Getting kids up on a Monday for school after a Saturday night sleepover was just impossible.

Am hmming at this thread as I listen to DD and the 3 friends she has round for a 'sleep'over, already hyped and I haven't opened the bags of sugar and E numbers sweets yet!

They will crash about 2 I reckon but will have a fab time grin

night parties
wake overs
Definitely NOT sleepovers

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Sat 01-Oct-16 16:52:40

After a bad experience they are now banned!

Patsy99 Sat 01-Oct-16 16:58:42

Write-off-Sunday overs?

HelenaJustina Sat 01-Oct-16 17:00:30

Hosting our first today, but only one guest who I have known her whole life so will be making them sleep!

EnidColeslaw771 Sat 01-Oct-16 17:06:46

Haha, I read your thread title and immediately thought Overnight Annoyathon... Great minds!

NeonPinkNails Sat 01-Oct-16 17:08:38

Like so many other activities sleepovers have now become 'a thing'. As a pp said, we used to just stay at somebody's house now and then, no big deal. But now they have to have popcorn and sweets and fizzy drinks and something special for breakfast the next day - costs a bloody fortune so I suggest Rip-Off-Parents-Overs confused.

Can you tell I don't like them?

Whathaveilost Sat 01-Oct-16 17:11:22

No-one-gets-to -sleep-overs

FunkinEll Sat 01-Oct-16 17:12:15

Hell on earth

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Sat 01-Oct-16 17:14:23

Just be cautious ..... you never know who is around at these sleepovers. You have no control over who has access to your kids
