This year, I have been toying with the idea of letting Ethan stay up late and watch the ball drop. This could go either way.
- He stays up late and actually, for once in his life, sleeps in.
- He stays up late and gets up his usual time, 5:30/6.
See the dilemma?
If I let him stay up, I am going to need some things to help him stay awake and to make it fun. Here are 15 great New Year’s Eve Ideas for Kids!
