  • I agree. I take care of one of those babies everyday. I have practically raised my nephew.

  • Yes, I sure do. She starts partying Thursday night and stops on Sunday. She has 4 kids. It's really pathetic, and I feel sorry for her kids and husband. Don't get me wrong I go out sometimes, but I don't feel the need to party 3-4 days out of the week. That's not fair to the kids.

  • I totally agree. Once a week we get together with our friends and have a few drinks or we go out, but it doesn't turn into an all weekend thing. Well, lately it's been once a week and they're already in bed asleep when the sitter gets here. So we do our movie, reading and playing games before we go out.

  • So, I guess I do go out more than sometimes, but it doesn't cut into the time I spend with my kiddos.

  • My husband and I get to party once a year together!! Separately maybe two or three times a year. I don't feel right imposing my kids on someone else constantly to drink. Oh you want one that's really bad....I know women out here who leave their kids home alone, while they drink at the bar. These kids are not old enough to be alone, were talking eight year olds, four year olds!! Get help if you need a drink this bad, your kids are suffering, I know what it's like to have an alcoholic for a parent. It hurts.
