  • As long as the baby is with a trusted sitter & you have a designated driver, you should enjoy your special day. Afterall, you only turn 21 once! Happy Birthday :)

  • There are going to be plenty of things to feel guilty about as a mom. Going out for your first drink is not one of them.

  • Nope. Just make sure your baby is in good hands, and if you do get drunk, have them keep her overnight.
