God is it only 10.30? AIBU to want to go to bed?

We're at home tonight through choice. I'm happy with that, had a nice takeaway and watched a bit of telly but now I'm tired and see no reason to stay up until midnight. But DD has a mate here, she (DD not the mate) already thinks we're fairly sad for staying in, going to bed before the big event would cement her opinion that we're the boringest parents ever <sigh>.

How can I get away with sloping off to bed?!

Fuck the mate and go to bed, she's your daughters problem.

Just go and give a convincing excuse such as a migraine. You have my greatest sympathy, I still don't know if I'm going to be awake at midnight chocolate

I got in from work at 8pm. I'm back at 8am. I'm having a glass of wine and going to bed.

I'd be going to bed shortly if neighbours weren't having a noisy party.

I'm tucked up in bed, DH on the computer in the next room playing some game or other, we are both quite content!

But then I am massively pregnant and we are waiting for this kid to get a move on and arrive now so everything else is overshadowed hmm

I was just wondering the same thing, I am 37 weeks pregnant with DC3 though.

I'd mutter something about fetching something from your room and 'accidentally' nod off while you are up there...

I'm debating going to bed, I'm coming down with a cold and have been feeling shit all day. Ds is still awake, and being allowed to stay up thanks dh so the pair of them are trawling eBay and I'm nearly asleep in the corner! Am I old?!
Happy new year all, dimlow I hope your baby arrives soon

Snap Dimlow grin

I'm in bed too. PJs, phone, book, and DH will shortly be bringing me up a large glass of sparkling water.

I could not be happier.

Sod the friend. Tell her you wish her a happy new year and are now going to cement your position as the boringest parents in the world and retire to bed. I think it's a title worth having OP, I really do.

Notrevealingmyidentity Thu 31-Dec-15 22:49:27

I'm also in bed.

BathshebaDarkstone Thu 31-Dec-15 22:50:45

I'm already in bed, wish the neighbours would STFU.

Greaterthanthesumoftheparts Thu 31-Dec-15 22:50:55

I'm laying on my sofa under a blanket, to be fair we're an hour ahead so it's already 10 to midnight, I'm counting down the minutes until I can politely go to bed!

Witchend Thu 31-Dec-15 22:51:29

I suggest you get into some revealing sexy underwear, just visible under your dressing gown and announce you and dh/dp are off to bed and mustn't be disturbed. Nudge nudge wink wink. Close the door and make a few moaning noises.

You will not then be the most boring parents ever. Simply the most embarrassing.
She will probably flee with df to her house and you can tip dh/dp out and go to sleep happily.

Until 11.55 when the fireworks start.

To make sure she doesn't stay in next year make sure whenever df is round you refer to such a wonderful exciting time you had and you hope to celebrate it in exactly the same way next time.
You can go to bed at 9pm next year.

I feel like that too... midnight seems so far away... shock

Happy New Year in absentia advance... grin

bornwithaplasticspoon Thu 31-Dec-15 22:55:48

Dh and I are only staying awake for mega excited dd (8). Can't wait for midnight, want my bed!

WoodleyPixie Thu 31-Dec-15 22:55:55

I just asked dh if i could go to bed as im tired and bored but he said no!!

We are in through choice. But I don't get this having to stay up til midnight. Just because it's New Years. He's sat on the other sofa yawning his head off but refusing to go to bed.

StillStayingClassySanDiego Thu 31-Dec-15 22:56:10

We are in bed , dh is going out to pick up ds3 at some point.

Frazzled2207 Thu 31-Dec-15 22:56:35

I'm in bed. Have a 2yo and 7mo and will likely be up at least twice at silly o'clock.

janethegirl2 Thu 31-Dec-15 22:58:08

My dh is snoring in the armchair, but I am knackered after working today.

I think I'll go to bed shortly and let him get on with it.

WeetabixExpress Thu 31-Dec-15 23:06:15

In bed with DH and 3 kids and black tea. Were out of milk. Bah humbug. Were watching Ben and Holly.

saraht84 Thu 31-Dec-15 23:06:22

33 weeks pregnant and in bed with some warm milk.

Go to bed, nobody will judge you!

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Thu 31-Dec-15 23:08:59

I'm hoping I'll make it to bed before midnight. OH went up an hour ago but the baby is still happily blowing raspberries. I'd definitely use the migraine excuse if I could! For those of you waiting for your little one to arrive I hope they put in an appearance soon.

kamillaw Thu 31-Dec-15 23:14:05

I'm at my in laws they are watching a film that doesn't interest me in the slightest at the minute MIL has a cold and so does my hubby. I'm going to go up to bed but want to watch the fireworks. Can I do that online?

TwentyOneGuns Thu 31-Dec-15 23:22:37

I've cracked and am in bed, lovely and comfy and don't even feel that tired now! DD was probably glad to see me go so they can sit up Facetiming their mates half the night without me walking in! Good luck to all those with little ones on the way and Happy New Year fellow saddos grin.
