My mom bought some party poppers so that Isaiah could join the fun of celebrating the new year. Obviously, at two years old, Isaiah is nowhere near ready to stay up until midnight. It would make for a very long and crabby new year. However, it’s easy enough to bend the rules a little and have an early party. At about eight, we gathered in the living room to do the party poppers and tell each other “happy New Year”. Isaiah had a blast and wanted to play with the streamers from the party poppers into the night. After he’d had some time to play with them, we gathered them up and headed towards bed. It may have been simple, but it was a fun little party for all of us.
