any cocktail moms?

I love watching films and reading magazines featuring the stereotypical "homemakers" who wear aprons, clean the home, and drink a cocktail. Of course they all werent like that, but it just seemed like a simpler time. Not trying to open a debate stemming from the woman who killed herself and 8 others in NY State due to a cocktail playdate, but anyone here a "cocktail mom"? do you enjoy a glass of wine, perhaps while your LO is napping? or are you more of an occasional-glass-of-wine-once-kids-are-in-bed kind of cocktail mom?

  • I just don't drink anymore, I have maybe once since my daughter was born, we had some friends over played the wii and had a couple of drinks, that was the last time. But I probably will in the future when I'm on in my 30's.

  • When I'm cooking a huge meal, I usually crack open a beer. The smell of wine turns my stomach. It's like nail polish remover.

  • I have a drink of wine when my DH is away with the military and my daughter is sleeping. Its not easy being the only one taking care of a child.

  • Sometimes SO will bring home some beer after work and I'll have a few (yes a few!) after the kids go to bed. We never go out so that is when we get our drink on.

  • When I get home from work I have a glass of wine sometimes. On the weekends I might have wine too. If I am alone with the baby I do not.

  • I don't really drink while my son is awake or will be awake soon (like nap time), but I will have an occasional drink after he's gone to bed. Some times in the winter I'll have a glass of wine with dinner, but not that often.
