Browsing on the web today and a lot of what I see on parent websites is all about how to have a great New Year’s Even celebration with your kids. Best thing Netflix ever did was create New Year’s Eve Countdown episodes of all their best shows to help you get the kiddlets to bed way before the ball actually drops.
But I’m not gonna lie to you. Those countdown shows are for suckers. Personally, I’m a huge proponent of sending the kids off to my mom’s house to help her celebrate. They love staying up late with grandma since she spoils them rotten. Grandma gets to spend the night with her grandbabies, and the hubs and I get a date night, guaranteed every year (unless grandma is travelling out of town in which case yes I supposed these videos would come in handy…)
Maybe for the morning after I’ll send my mom one of these do not disturb door hanger thingies… (click this link to download your very own copy!) but honestly, the truth is all three of them will totally sleep in tomorrow morning.
As will I.
In my very quite home.
No one to wake me up before I’m ready.
In the meantime, I’m getting off this computer and going to go find something to binge watch that is decidedly NOT child friendly. Lots of swearing and things blowing up on a screen bigger than my iPad will be really nice for a change. Perhaps some zombies, or some monsters rampaging through a city or something. Anything but Thomas and Friends and Power Rangers. Thank you for tonight Netflix and mom! I owe you both for what is going to be an excellent New Year’s Eve Date Night!
Happy New Year!!
