Clint and Derek like to have sleepovers on the weekend in the living room. They fall asleep watching one of their favorite movies...currently one of the Star Wars Episodes. Once in a while on a school night, they can have a half sleepover, where they get ready for bed early and after books and teeth brushing, they can watch part of a movie with their pillows and blankets until it is time to go to bed. A few nights ago, I let them have a "quarter" sleepover. About 20 min. of a movie before bed. Tonight Derek asked if they could have a "quarter" sleep over again:
Me: Not tonight Derek. It is late and we have a busy day tomorrow.
Derek: We can't even have a "quarter" sleepover?
Me. Not tonight
Derek: Can we have a "Penny" sleepover then?
Me: (Laughing) What is a "Penny" sleep over?
Derek: It's shorter than a "quarter".
So I let them have a Penny Sleep over. On Friday, Derek says he wants a "Nickle one", or maybe a "dime?" I am still not quite sure how that translates into min. of a movie. I am sure Derek will figure it out and let me know.
Hey Pop – you’re da best!
