It’s a New Year Baby

Posted on January 1, 2009. Filed under: The Parenting Thing |

New Years Eve: we told the kids they could stay up as long as they could.  All ChickenFried could talk about was wanting to watch the big ball drop.  “You know – the ball in New York.  Can we go to New York and watch it drop.  Alex is there.  Not Alex in my class, but Alex the lion.”  I reminded him that as of Madasgar II – Alex was in Africa.  And no, we can’t go to New York for New Years Eve.

Punk made it to almost 9:30 pm before falling asleep on the couch in front of the fireplace.  BigD promised ChickenFried $5 if he could stay awake until midnight, so CF would have taped his eyelids open if he could.  But, I’m a terrible Mom and I didn’t want to stay up until midnight so I told him to come lay his head on my lap.  He was asleep in 5 minutes – at 10:15.  I did make it until midnight – NY time, so we tried to wake CF up to see the ball drop but he was so out of it he didn’t remember it.
