Daughter has her state meet next weekend. She got invited to her friends sleepover party the night before which she wants to go to. I already discussed with her the possibility of her having to miss it if it was early Sunday morning and she was fine with this. But because she does not have to be at the meet until 5pm sunday night she wants to go I could pick her up early sunday morning and let her rest. I hate to tell her she can not go because she has already missed alot of parties this year due to meets ( she is fine about missing parties for meets and practices because she understands if she wants to stay on the team that is what is expected of them and never complains about it ) I understand her point of view she will have most of the next day to recover for the meet but part of me thinks she will not get sleep and it will effect her performance at the meet and then she will be mad that I let her sleepover. Am I crazy for thinking this way she is only a level 4 and just turned 9 . I am trying to leave the decision up to her and she wants to go, she usually can sleep anywhere and she will be at practice for 4 hours on saturday so I am sure she will be tired. Any thoughts?
