Moms and Martinis

You've got to be KIDDING ME! I'm listening to the Today show in the background as my kids fuss and cry b/c they have a cold and they've been up for a whole hour and are ready for their first nap (It's 8:30am and I could use a martini.. ha ha).... They are talking about moms getting together for play groups and having a martini or glass of wine. ONE drink compromises your ability to function .. blah.. blah.. blah.. You know what compromises my ability to function? Two kids screaming in my face. It's ONE freakin' drink in the course of a couple of hours.. give me a break! It's not like they are having a kegger w/ their kids.. so if this is a problem what about the neighborhood bbq where you might throw back a beer ... or GASP two! Or what about when you leave the kids w/ your hubby and his buddies to watch the game while you go to get some errands done - b/c this is the only opportunity you are going to have - and they are having brewskies while they watch the game??

Now maybe if it was EVERY play date you went to ... but I'm sure it's a 'special' thing!

People need to relax! GEEZ!


  1. Ugh! I agree! Don't people have more important things to worry about? The Today's Show should have featured your new composting gadget or the article on how everyone is "sick" in America instead. Are we really wasting our time on "issues" like having a drink during a play date? Geez . . .

  2. I personally think that having a martini or a glass of wine during a playdate sounds like a GREAT idea! I really can't believe what people are worrying about - You are so right about the bbq or for that matter any other function - what about a beer or glass of wine with dinner while your kids are still awake? What's the difference????
