I’m really interested to know how you all spent new years!! Did you leave the kids? Have a night in? Are you single and mingling?
For us we had our first New Years in. We traditionally go out or at least over to a parent’s house to watch Dick Clark and eat terribly delicious food. But this year we kept it low key or no key as we didn’t try at all haha…except try to stay awake.
The kids went to bed and we made ourselves personal pie plates of nachos and glasses of Merlot compliments of my parents. We watched a great movie and then some YouTube clips that as usual involved one of the late night Jimmys. We kept ourselves up and quietly shared our thoughts about the year past and the goals for the one entering. Then Journey woke up. At 11:58. That’s right. I waited up all night and got a Happy New Years text from my husband while my 9 month old suckled contently. I had not realized what time it was when I went in to resettle her hahaha…always a mum. So as one who has been nursing continually for 3.5 years I guess it was pretty within the norm for a New Years midnight strike!
I got my kiss after she was back to sleep…5 minutes late isn’t too bad I guess. Then it was straight to bed as kids don’t sleep in just because mum and dad were up…we can dream though right?
What about you? Where were you when the bell tolled twelve? Sleeping, nursing, dancing…it’s all good!
