2018 SOLSC Day 24: Sleepover




Three cousins

Seven, eight, and four years old

Are going to



Watch a movie

Pretend to fall asleep

In sleeping bags

On the couches

In the living room

Tell stories

Make funny voices

And shadow puppets using flashlights

And jokes

And probably at some point

Way past bedtime

Dare each other

To sneak a snack from the kitchen

Join my colleagues and I at Two Writing Teachers for the March Slice of Life Story Challenge!

  1. This conjures such strong images of sleepovers with cousins from my childhood. Your descriptions are so consistent with my memories. 🙂


  2. Coming from a small family (and having the oldest grandkids) I rely on this kind of writing to imagine what fun cousins might have. Thank you for letting us into your sleepover! 🙂

    My kids have the best memories of sleepovers with their cousins. Even now in their 30s and 40s, they laugh about those times together.
    Loved the way you wrote it as a poem.
