NYE with a toddler

New Year’s Eve has never been a big event in my life, even though there are definitely some memorable celebrations.  Now that I’m a parent, the celebrations have changed even more to include sippy cups, high chairs and Disney movies. 

Since Anderson is just starting to take part and enjoy fun activities, we tried to include a few new activities as part of our New Year’s Eve celebration.  Here’s our night with our toddler:

First we made pizza.  She just wanted to eat the mozzarella cheese.  I was okay with that, less mess involved.

Then, she got to play with her new bath crayons.  She just wanted to eat the crayons.  The new bath crayon activity ended quickly.

After that, we decided to spoil our sweetie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  She just wanted one more scoop.  Mom said "no." 

Then, we picked out a Disney movie on Netflix.  She watched for maybe 10 minutes before deciding to tear into her toys and bounce on the couch.  Who knows how the movie ended….. 

And finally, bedtime!  A successful toddler New Year’s Eve night was complete with our one year old tucked in bed by nine (an hour past her bedtime).
