NYE With Kids: What It Really Looks Like

9 PM is the new midnight.


Remember the days of making New Year's Eve plans? Deciding which party to go to and what to wear. Such festivities, of course, likely happened before your sweet offspring arrived and now NYE looks so much different.

Someone always gets sick.

9 PM is the new midnight.

Dressing up for NYE involves a mask and cape.

Bowling alleys are the new clubs.

Swimming pools, too.

Swim time. #nyewithkids #maddieyeartwo

But we wouldn't want to ring in the New Year any other way.
