Milo's dad and I have a deal set up for NYE. That deal is that he has Milo one year, I have him the next and so fourth. Last year was my year to have Milo which means this year it's my turn to head out and party my bum off. Except. Oh wait. I'm pregnant. AND single. Hmmmmm.
This poses a bit of a problem. Being pregnant of course already changes the kind of celebration you would have perhaps at this time of year but being single on top limits it even more. If I had a partner then we could do something special together even if it didn't involve copious amounts of alcohol. Actually, some of my favourite New Years Eve celebrations have been spent 'in' with a loved one but it's not quite so special on your own! I was thinking that maybe there would be some friends around this year who may be doing something but of course, this year it seems that most people are away and of course anyone who doesn't have kids wants to be out celebrating in style. Hmmmmm again. So what do I do?
Milo's dad has already said that he thinks I should take Milo so he can go out partying as the evening off would be wasted on me in my situation. Back when he was in a relationship with his now ex, I did actually think that were I to have no plans, I would give him and his lady the chance to celebrate together but as this will be my last opportunity to do something on NYE for many MANY years to come, I kind of want to use it! Let's face it, as I will be home with child number 2 for NYE in the years to come, Milo's dad will be
So here I am, still unsure as to what to do?! Do I take Milo?! Do I take the 'night off' even if I don't do anything with it? Afterall, with how loud it gets here in Berlin, I won't be getting much sleep that night so I will be pretty knackered and could at least make use of a lay in on the 1st January. Any ideas people?
