Thoughts on New Year's Eve

  • Ever heard the term "Twin brothers from different mothers"?  Last night I had "triplet sisters from different mothers".  Three 13 year old girls having a sleepover means dear old DaddyBear retreats to the bedroom to shoot electronic Nazi's after Boo goes to bed.
  • Seriously, when you get three or more girls together, they almost set up a choral of talking where two are talking while one is breathing.  This causes a continuous chatter that can last for days.
  • Two adults, three teenage girls, and one three year old were somehow able to eat three large pizzas, two dozen leftover Christmas cookies, two batches of jalapeno poppers, two bowls of popcorn, a bag of potato chips, and four two-liter bottles of soda. 
  • Somehow, the father in this scenario went to bed a bit hungry.
  • Apparently turning off the TV and telling the girls to go to bed at 12:05 was fruitless.  Irish Woman reports they were up talking all night long. 
  • I made it to 12:20, an improvement over years past.
  • Breakfast this morning was banana bread, fruit, milk, and orange juice.  The girls wanted leftover pizza, but there wasn't any.
  • As expected, I heard the not too distant sound of gunfire at midnight last night.  No impacts on our property.
  • Hopefully, there will be a nap in my future.

Mine are grown now.

We just had our very first New Year celebration without any kids in the house.
It was very nice sitting around a quiet campfire in the backyard, sipping adult beverages and talking about last year's accomplishments, and next year's hopes and dreams.

but we couldn't help missing the noise and excitement of those New Years past just a little bit. Thanks for sharing.

OBTW - You're bookmarked and blogrolled

Thanks guys.

By the time Boo is out of the house, I'll be too old and broken down to stay up and party, but then again, I can always say I'm celebrating on London time.

MSgt B - You're also blogrolled and added to my RSS reader. Thanks!

No left over pizza - with teenagers you would be lucky if there was leftover anything.
Thanks for the laugh hopefully by now you have had some time to push a few Z's. All the best for the New Year.

It is always a good idea to improve but don't change anything that makes you smile. Just add more :)
