Having a party as a kid, whether it’s for a birthday or just a simple sleepover, used to be one of the most exciting things ever. You’d invite all of your best friends, play together, watch television, gossip and giggle, snack on things like pizza or mom’s homemade snacks, stay up longer, and whatnot.

Well, cartoonist and writer Emily Flake recently found a slumber party plan that she wrote when she was 8 years old and decided to share it with the lovely people of the internet. And the party sounds both adorable and amazing!

So, Emily Flake, a cartoonist, writer, performer, teacher, and illustrator from… well, the internet, but also from Brooklyn, New York, recently stumbled upon a very detailed slumber party plan that she composed back when she was 8 years old.

And boy, was it detailed! It had everything from a modest guest list, assuming it’s for best friends only, to a slew of activities, each time-stamped to the minute. No joke, some activities are just 1–3 minutes long and some activities start or end at odd times, like a minute or two after an hour or half an hour.

The plan starts off with a list of guests (sorry, geusts), namely five: Kristen, Amanda, Heather, Sarah, and Darce. Then it moves on to the itinerary, beginning with the arrival of the guests and the party practically starts in all of its adorableness.

What makes it super adorable are all of the cute spelling mistakes and the activities that, face it, you’d still want to partake in at a slumber party

Besides all of the cute spelling errors that you’d expect from an 8-year-old, there’s also all of the adorable stuff that the ladies got to do: talking and giggling, making funny faces and remarks, drawing pictures, more giggling, a whole lot of reading, playing various games, dancing, pillow fighting, and “lying around talking about how some things are so mean.” Of course!

The supposed party was to start at around 4:30PM on one day, continue into the night until it’s time for the girls to sleep (at about 1:30AM) until whenever they wake up, but no later than 10AM when they have breakfast and that’s where the plan cuts off. Assuming it’s probably the time when the parents come to pick up their kids. Or not. The party can go on, right?

Emily shared her adorable slumber party plan with the internet on her Twitter with the caption: “I’ve never planned a better party than the one I planned when I was 8.” True that, Emily, true that!

These include giggling, pillow fights, making remarks, and “talking about some things that are so mean”

People on Twitter loved it and had a lot to say about this slumber party of hers. Many were pointing out all of the fun things included into the plan, like “make remarks,” “make funny faces,” and “playing shrades.” Yes, that’s how charades are actually spelled, don’t you dare disagree with an 8-year-old!

Others highlighted the fact that there are three dedicated pillow fights, each anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes long (poor pillows), the fact that there is a total of 1 hour and 16 minutes dedicated to reading in total, and the fact that dad takes everyone out for donuts and that lasts just 19 minutes.

The tweet went viral immediately, garnering over 220,000 likes with over 14,000 retweets in just one day.

After the photos went viral, Emily also shared a video of what her 8-year-old thought of her party plan

To make things even more fun and adorable, Emily also shared a video of herself interviewing her own actual 8-year-old daughter and asking what she thought about her childhood party. Yes, she would actually want to go, but things would probably be a little different: less pillow fights, different snacks, and no hauling the radio “because this was made in the 80s.”

Unfortunately, Emily can’t remember if she actually had the party, so it might have just never happened, but her daughter said she would do many of the things in the list for her own party, so, hey, it might still become a reality!

What are your thoughts on this? Would you participate in this party if you were still 8 years old, or would you throw a party with these exact activities? Heck, even as an adult! Let us know in the comment section below!

People online absolutely adored the party plan, pointing out the best parts  and how much they’d want to attend
