How often do you drink?

I've seen a lot of posts on Friday and Saturday night from other moms having a good time on the weekend. My hubby is layed off from work right now and he only gets paid on monday nights and that's when we have a beer, it's like the weekend for us. How about you? Do you only drink on the weekends?

  • Sometimes I have a glass of wine or two during the week, but DH has to be up at 5:30 am and I feel bad doing it in front of him (conversely, he rarely drank when I was pregnant. Even on weekends we usually only drink a lot once a month or less. Sunday used to be DH's friday and thats when we would have a good time and we got a lot of funny looks.

  • I don't really drink at all. I'll have a glass of wine or a wine cooler occasionally (as in once every 3 or 4 months), but I've never been a big drinker.

  • we mostly don't drink. not that we think it is wrong, but i feel that if you have kids, sleeping or being baby sat, it is immature and irresponsible to get drunk. if something happened to your child and you were intoxicated, you couldn't think clearly or easily make it to a grandparents house etc if there was an emergency. a beer or two, or a glass or two of wine i think is ok, but excessive is just irresponsible. I personally just don't like the taste, so I rarely drink!

  • When Hubby's home he has a night cap before bed but I don't. It gives me a headache so I just have some green tea. I'm not against it, I just can't handle the headaches...
