How to stay awake late at a slumber party

My niece and nephew are both spending the night for the second night in a row. They both hate to go to bed. They have a million excuses for needing another glass of water which of course leads to a million excuses for needing to go to the bathroom. At one point, my nephew called me up to inform me that he found a quarter.

I keep coming up and chasing them back into bed.

At one point the city fireworks started up and the two of them rushed to the top of the stairs and asked for Aunt BeAGoodMom. I came up and they excitedly told me that there were fireworks.

I told them they needed to get back in bed because we are taking them home tomorrow and watching the parade in their city and they need the energy.

Someday, I’m going to have to teach them that when you want to stay awake late at a slumber party, you don’t go looking for the parents to tell them the neat things you are doing.
