4years ago I had a crazy, drunken, smooch filled New Year's Eve befitting my age and childless newly married state.
3 years ago I was pregnant with Michaela and exhausted all the time. I slept through New Year's Eve.
2 years ago Michaela was a baby, we were still co-sleeping, and I was exhausted all the time. I slept through New Year's Eve.
1 year ago Rafael was a newborn. I was exhausted all the time. I slept through New Year's Eve.
This year I have an almost 3 year old and a 1 year old, and even though I am still exhausted all the time, they both sleep glorious 12 hour nights. I figured if I was ever going to actually stay awake during New Year's Eve, this had better be the year, before I get pregnant again. And so I invited 2 of my sisters over and spent the night drinking wine, watching Love Actually, and hanging out with the 2 women who I never have to censor myself around. It was a great night, and the perfect way to bring in the New Year (finally)!
