Just really asking for ANY advice here please - Alice has been invited to her best friends birthday sleepover. 4pm til 10.30am the next morning. I am not really sure where to start on this one, other than I would love to help her go if I can ... this is Alice's bestest best friend, the family are lovely but I don't think they have the first idea what is involved - Alice has been there before (with me in tow) and they are always 'generous' with food - piniatas stuffed with sweets, homemade pizzas, lots of traditional Brazilian homemade food (they are Brazilian, but it is a nightmare to carb count), 'lets all ice cup cakes and see how many we can eat', lets bounce on the trampoline, get out the paddling pool etc - its a full on fun house... <sigh> Anyone had a 7/8 yr old (or younger) go to a sleepover without popping in themselves? What/how much info did you leave with parents? Should I do a 'timetable' breaking down what needs to be done? (as in, before meal - blood test, carb count etc) How much would you expect the parents to do, esp regarding carb counting? How could I support them with this? I am happy for someone to wake Alice at midnight and have her test / respond as required - Alice has done this with late night babysitters before. Funnily enough, the overnight thing is probably the bit that worries me the least - I seem to be scared stiff about the rest of it though :cwds: help?
