Plans continue for McMonk's ninth birthday party - a sleepover party.
At last count, I'm expecting 8 giggling sleepover buddies in my house tomorrow evening. There'll be pizza, chips, a movie, party games and McMonk as the center of attention, loving every spotlighted minute. She's been counting down for the last five weeks. At times, I'm a little annoyed at the egocentric approach she's taking to this event and I have reminded her on occasion that it's about celebrating with your friends, but right now I don't have the heart to spoil her fun.
