Your New Year’s Eve Photos are Exhausting Me: A mom’s night in

My Facebook feed is full of your New Year’s Eve photos. You all look fabulous. Clearly, you spent a lot of time on your hair and a lot of money on your outfit. You must have had great fun dancing and staying up very very late.

Frankly, looking at all these photos is exhausting. All I can think of is how much your shoes must have hurt and how tired you probably felt the next day.

There once was a time when I was one of those smiling faces with eyeliner and a short skirt, but not anymore. Now I’m a mom. If you gave me a VIP ticket to a party in the city and a free baby sitter I still wouldn’t go because it would take too much time to find a dress. And I need to color my hair.

I went to bed while you were still dancing. I didn’t see the ball drop. And I woke up on New Year’s Day not to a pounding headache, but to my baby pounding on her crib yelling “Mama, Mameeee.”

  1. Thanks for the chuckle! I relate. I did end up being awake at midnight (not expected, since early awakening is a given), but in PJs to upbeat music at home. It suited me just fine.
