New Year’s Eve always carries with it a certain amount of hype. You always feel like you should be doing something amazing and epic to ring in the new year, but then things never turn out the way you planned and you end up eating a bowl of ice cream at home and watching Dick Clark for the 18,000th time and feeling like a loser. Or maybe that’s just me. But, when you have a little one, your NYE is pretty much bound to be lame unless you can convince someone to give up their chance at an “epic New Year’s” to stay home with your kid…unlikely. So, instead of getting all down in the mouth about it, just reframe your thinking: ”Staying in is the new going out!” Here are 5 reasons why staying in on New Year’s Eve is even better than going out.
