Woe Is Mom: NYE Edition
Ah, New Year’s Eve. It’s a lot like the Fourth of July. People celebrate by making noise later into the evening than usual and some parents get very upset like it isn’t just happening for a single night. Around the Fourth, I can sort of understand this attitude because some people do treat the holiday like a weeklong excuse to make as much noise as possible. But on New Year’s Eve? It’s the last day of the year, let’s party! Even babies should party! You can catch up on your sleep later.
A half hour after midnight? NO THEY DID NOT! Doesn’t everyone know that when the clock strikes 12:00, it’s time to pack up, go home, put on pajamas and hit the hay? Everyone should be sleeping by 12:15!!!
Seriously, though, it’s just one night. Yes, fireworks are annoying but so are Story Hour curmudgeons. New Year’s Eve is a classic party night, and while *I* may have been home petting my cats shortly after midnight because it’s what I do, I would never expect everyone else to do the same. It’s a new year! Don’t hate — CELEBRATE.
Or at the very least, if you’re going to hate, don’t do it like Keri and don’t do it like this:
Yikes. Jess is one angry mama bear. I hope this level of anger is a preview of what’s to come in 2K12, because it sure sounds like fun! I can already hear it now…
"The lady who took my parking space at the mall should be hung up in the town square and set on fire!"
"Those teenagers who terrified my baby with their skateboards should be waterboarded instead! On national television!”
"That rude worker at the post office should be beaten senseless with an aluminum bat right before I hit her with my car! I said OVERNIGHT DELIVERY, bitch!!!"
Yes, 2012 has all the makings of a real bang-up year, and I’m looking forward to it.
I’ve got a few more New Year’s-related submissions to post today, so stay tuned!
