Today my baby girl is 7 and as promised, she is celebrating with her first slumber party.  My house is now filled with four squealing little girls – before they’ve had cake.  I got out some board games, hoping they might be tempted to play quietly, but no dice.  For now I am tolerating the screaming.  After dinner I will banish them to the basement for a movie.

Speaking of movies, I’m reminded of the scene in Annie where Miss Hannigan (aka  Carol Burnett)  laments her lot in life.  Alas, this song has been stuck in my head for the past hour:

“Some women are drippin’ with diamonds.

Some women are drippin’ with pearls.

Lucky me, lucky me, look at what I’m drippin’ with —

Little girls!”

Likewise, this is probably what I will look like after (if!) they finally fall asleep tonight.
