Do you drink?

Sometimes after dd is gone to bed me and hubby have afew beers. She is in bed every night at 7, and we don't goto bed untill at least 11.
We don't get drunk, we just have 3-4 and watch tv or play super nintendo (we're geeks).
My in-laws were all giving me weird looks when I had 2 beers at Easter.
What's the big deal?

  • Me and my hubby do the same thing. There's nothing wrong with it as long as your both not getting trashed...which you said you don't. I miss drinking with my hubby cause I'm pregnant right now...only 5 more weeks to go!

  • If I have my kids at home, either I drink or my dh drinks - not both of us. If my older kids are at their dads and grandma has the baby - then yes we drink. I would not send my kids to a friends house to spend the night if I thought the parents might be drinking after the kids went to bed, but that's just me.

  • I don't drink at all. If you can handle 3-4 beers and still be able to watch your kid that's you business honestly.
