Keep your kids up to watch the ball drop for those of us on the east coast or up until midnight? Do you let them only if they ask? Just curious because my SO thinks we should keep my 4 year old up to watch the ball drop but I think its kind of stupid at his age. His normal bed time is at 7 the latest 8 so yeah, another 4 hours might make my son a complete terror just to see a stupid glowing ball drop.
I used to put the clocks ahead, the only ones my daughter would see and when the ball went down on the east coast it was bedtime. Then I changed the clocks back to the normal time. Now this year, she's 11 and has a friend over and I don't care if they are up till midnight
7 & 2.5 year old.
my youngest doesn't believe in sleep, so, she might be up, (giving no craps about the new year, ha)
but my oldest, nah, he has an 8pm bedtime, stay up later than usual tonight for our little "party" together- yup. Til midnight- nope.
He swears I'm like making my oldest miss out on something. I'm like seriously he won't even remember or care really. As horrible as it sounds I look forward to my sons bedtime because then I finally get some quiet time to myself lol
Quoting Stl mama:" <blockquote><b>Quoting NicoThunders:</b>" My 6 year old wants to stay up until midnight ... [snip!] ... until midnight tonight. Her normal bedtime is 8:30 so I told her good luck trying. "</blockquote> That made me lol."
She's dead set on doing it, so I don't see the harm in letting her try. I highly doubt she'll make it though.
