So, your kids want to stay up until the ball drops. However, you know if you let them, one of several thing is going to happen as a result:
- They will fall asleep on the couch and you will have to try to carefully move them without waking them up.
- They will stay up and then be a nightmare to live with for the next 3 days.
- They will fall asleep on the couch and then be heartbroken that they missed the new year.
None of these scenarios sound particularly pleasing to me, and I know with a normal 7 PM bedtime, my 6, 4, and 2 year old are not prepared to stay away until midnight. Heck, we didn’t even make it until 9:30 at Disney when we tried to see the parade!
This year Netflix has 6 themed countdowns for you to choose from to ring in the new year at whatever time you please.
Happy New Year to you and your family – no matter what time you choose to celebrate!
