Enjoying the New Year when you have children brings a new host of challenges, especially if you’re a newer parent. The makers of Mommy’s Time Out Wine understand and have offered the following ideas:
Keep it Simple; Celebrate at Home:
Being a parent is stressful enough, but combine it with trying to compete for a babysitter and staying out late only to get up early. This only adds to the pressure. Try celebrating with a nice family dinner and put the kids to bed with their usual routine so you and your spouse can snuggle in front of the TV with some special late night treats.
To avoid the morning-after champagne headache, why not enjoy just a glass or two of wine with some late night snacks like an imported cheese and some fresh fruit? Mommy can enjoy a glass of Mommy’s Time Out® wine, while Dad can indulge in a glass of Dad’s Day Off® Chianti! At a suggested retail of just about $10 per bottle, your celebration won’t break the bank like expensive champagne.
Make Some Family Memories:
New Year’s Day is a great day to make some family memories that will last a lifetime. Try taking a family photo with someone holding up a sign with the year. It’s also a great day to measure everyone against the door jam, so they can look back at their growth in years to come.
Get the whole family involved in goal setting. Have everyone share a goal for the coming year and brainstorm as a family the steps you can take to make that goal a reality. Find ways to reward one another along the way and remember to check in over dinner once a month to keep those goals front and center! This is a great way to forge family cooperation and show the kids how to accomplish something as a team.
Look Back & Count Your Blessings:
While looking to the future is great, take time to look back on the year and count your blessings. Remind each other and your children of all the good things that happened, and teach your family how to appreciate what they have. One way to do this is to ask each family member to write down three things they were thankful for in 2016 and share them over dinner on New Year’s Eve. Keeping them in a scrapbook and looking at them every few years will also serve as a reminder of what’s truly important.

For our first Girls Night out at The Cozy Patio in Williamsburg. The girls had so much fun meeting our lovely vendors who were very informative on their brands and enticed the ladies with amazing giveaways. We enjoyed the ambiance that The Cozy Patio had to offer with great drink and dinner specials.
I was so happy to able to meet and speak to every one of the ladies but I am looking forward to our next GNO at Bar Louie in Hampton.

If you can’t get to New Orleans then let it come to you when you visit The Cozy Patio in Williamsburg. This atmosphere and the smell of the delicious dishes coming out kitchen will make you feel as if you have made your way to the deep south with traditional New Orleans favorites such as Jambalaya, Cajun Rice, Shrimp Po Boys and Gumbo that is to die for!
You wont be disappointed in this spot to eat, drink and have a great time. Most nights have Jazz music playing! But if you get there on the special nights they often have Live Music and Karaoke on certain nights of the week. I had the pleasure of meeting with owners Zineta and D’Shawna, which work hard to give you that home feeling once you arrive! When you smell the food you know it comes from love. The recipes were hand crafted by Zineta's husband who founded ,and shows off his cooking skills in The Cozy Patio Kitchen! Don't miss your opportunity to try these delicious dishes that are close to the owners hearts, you wont be dissapointed!
The Cozy Patio has a vibe that is perfect for all types of functions such as intimate date nights and a family friendly atmosphere. They both understand the need to have a good time and have a place where guests can relax and enjoy themselves.
Do not be fooled by the small exterior of this location but you will feel the cozy feeling as soon as you arrive. Once I saw that everyone was happy, I knew this was the place our Girls Night Out needed to be! You will not be disappointed with the delicious meals, tasty spirits and element of the great ambience The Cozy Patio gives you.
