Just hours to 2013.

If you have young kids who are staying up to bring in the new year, it's a good day for some long naps.

How old were your kids the first time they rang in New Year's Day?

If you're bringing in 2013 with the kids it's best to have a plan.  Long afternoon naps and plans for an exit to bed by 12:05am are both safe choices.

My oldest kids were 3 and almost 3 the first time they counted down to New Year's Day.  Our 2-year-old probably won't make it this year.  Having an almost-New Year's countdown at 9:59pm or 10:59pm can be a good back-up plan.

Have a Happy New Year!
