Each year I entertain visions of a fancy New Year’s Eve party. You know, me and the hubby decked out in formal wear, dancing the night away while a band plays and champagne flows endlessly in a fountain nearby. But, then I wake up and realize that that kind of bash is not for my season of life. It’s not because I’m “a mom”, but it’s just not practical with six growing mouths to feed. Not to mention that I couldn’t convince my husband to don a tux and uncomfortable shoes. Or that we don’t know anyone who would host such a shindig anyway. For the rest of the story, visit Simply Family Magazine.

    In our years BC, hubby and I used to go on a couple of cruises a year. One of our favorite parts were the formal nights where we'd be all dolled up, sipping champagne, and dining on surf & turf. I have beautiful fond memories of our early to mid 20's and those trips… but I wouldn't trade my current place for that for any amount of money!

    But someday… well, I'd love to host a shindig like the one you mentioned. I'll put you on the invite list! 🙂

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
