DH took DD8yrs to a birthday party at about 12. She had chocolate crackles, fairy bread, cake made with heaps of food colouring and came home drinking a can of creaming soda.

Within 30mins of being home(about 2:45) she was fast asleep and is still asleep.

If she'd been hyper & bouncing off the ceilings when she got home from the party I could understand you wanting to offload her to someone else but what's the big deal if she is sleeping?  Isn't that a good thing? (or have I missed something?)

I assume the op is bracing herself for the onslaught when dd8 wakes up?

I meant to add that giving her things such as polaramine & things that should make her drowsy, hype her up. Her system seems to be back-to-front. original.gif

Wow!  I'll take her.  But you have to take my 8yo DS who is absolutely feral and bouncing off the walls after parties for at least 24 hours after wink.gif

I'd be gently waking her up now though.  She'll be up until midnight if you don't  ffear.gif

DH is up until midnight, so he could deal with her.

Nah, she woke up a few minutes ago. Now quietly colouring in with her sister.

Hmm, if I was you, I'd be getting a sickie bucket ready, just in case!
