New Year's Eve With Children

I won't be up to ring in the New Year.

In the off-chance I happen to be awake at mid-night, it will likely be to coax a baby girl back to sleep.

Today has felt like any other day.

No big parties to attend tonight. No hangover to worry about tomorrow.

I don't miss those days. Maybe it's age. Maybe it's realizing how little I liked those New Year's Eves of old to begin with. Even before I had kids I would often fall asleep, or want to, before midnight.

Give me my warm bed in my warm house with my children nestled snuggly beside us. That's my idea of a fantastic New Year's Eve.
