Baby Talk: New Year’s Eve as a New Mama
I knew that becoming a mama would mean some major changes to my social life—and I was ready for it! Following Brooks’ birth I even participated in an ancient custom where mother and baby don’t leave the home for a full 40 days. (I’m not gonna lie, that was a little rough; but it was a very rewarding experience when all was said and done.) But mamas and daddies still need a night on the town every once in a while, right? With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, I’ve been mulling that question over in my head! Do we phone the sitter and spend NYE like we used to or make the countdown to 2013 a family affair?
I’d love to hear how you fellow mamas spend New Year’s Eve.
Leave your advice for me in the comments.
