New Year’s Eve festivities look a little different when you add kids to the mix.
Many parents spend Dec. 31 partying it up with snacks and family time on the couch. Some trick their children into going to bed before midnight … and then pass out from pure exhaustion shortly thereafter.
And of course, some take to Twitter to laugh about these wild adventures. Here are 31 funny tweets that sum up New Year’s Eve for parents.
Parents..don’t forget to set your clocks ahead two hours on New Year’s Eve so you can pretend that you actually did stay up until midnight.

I know my life has changed when on New Year’s Eve, I run to Walmart to get diapers, milk, Epsom salt, and children’s Tylenol. #DadLife

Sorry I won’t be able to make it to your New Year’s Eve party. I’m waiting for my 7yo to finish tying his shoes so I’m busy ’til April.

My children’s new year’s resolution appears to be to mash up crackers and leave crumbs in…
