My dgs is 5.5, and his sister is 2.5. We have always had dgs to stay for sleepovers since he was a baby, but now that dgd is old enough to understand, she wants to come too.
The problem is that they fight. Normal for tinies, I know, but exhausting for grandparents in their 60s. We have him to give him some one to one, and give their parents a break.
Dgd likes attention, snatches his toys and ruins his games so the experience isn't pleasant with both together. I suggested we have them alternately but he was horrified and got quite upset. In addition, dgd doesn't sleep well and still wakes up crying several times a night, which would wake everyone.
Yesterday while we were getting ready, dgd put her shoes on and made it clear she wanted to come too, and cried when we went without her. Am I heartless? We've said maybe when she's a bit older...
