Betu had his first sleepover on Saturday night. It was totally unplanned. It so happened that I had gone to visit one of my cousin sisters who is visiting from US. There he has his 2 elder sisters, Sowmya and Vaidehi whom he is very fond of. So after dinner, when it was time for us to leave, he just put his foot down and refused to come back with us. In fact he asked us to go away and told us in clear words that he is going to stay there. So after a lot of tries to take him along with us, we finally agreed to leave him for the night. Since I was carrying an extra pair of clothes including undergarments, we decided to give it a try. Although it took a lot of convincing on my part as Hubby was not ready to leave him.
So to test the waters, we left but only to the nearby market and sat in the coffee shop to see if he asks for us after we have been gone for 30 mins. I called up and he still hadn't asked for us. Another 15 min later, I came to know he had already dozed off. We knew that he will be fine there and won't cry asking for us as we had expected.
So all went well through the night and when I called up around 8:30 Am, he was still asleep. I again called up around 10:00 AM to speak with him. I asked him if he had a good sleep to which he replied "haan". When I asked him what is he doing he told me 'Main aapse baad mein baat karunga. Main abhi busy hoon" and handed over the phone to his Mami. We both had such a laugh hearing him say this.
Finally he trotted back in the house around 7 PM when his Mama had come to drop him. In fact he didn't even want to come back then. He really enjoyed his sleepover and so did we *wink* :D
I guess now we should plan more of such sleepovers for them cousins since they have so much fun together.
