How did you spend your 21st Birthday?

I turn 21 today, and I am sitting here at home with my 10 month old son, I went to my favorite Chinese buffet with SO for lunch, but he is at school right now. I can't go out to the bars or anything because of lack of a babysitter...I feel me what you did to celebrate your's...Do you all think it would be wrong to have a few drinks after my little one goes to bed tonight?

  • I ordered pizza and had a movie night with my 13 yr old sister... and that was before i had a kid!

    I think its fine to have a few drinks before bed, as long as one of you(you or your SO) are able to deal with any nighttime wake ups.

    Happy birthday and have fun!

  • Nothing wrong in having a drink or two after baby goes to bed. Happy Birthday!!!

    When I turned 21 I had been living overseas where there was no drinking age. Pretty anti-climatic. My mom was visiting me and took my to Egypt, which was really cool. When I got back home, my friends took me out for a nice dinner.

    Again, Happy Birthday!

  • Wow... that was a long time ago (1989)... let me think

    I went to the bar down the street with a girlfriend and we had beers and tacos. The problem is that I used my real idea and had been going there for about a year with a fake id. The doorman was very hurt to find out I had been lying to him for a year. Looking back I feel really bad about that. Im sure I went out that weekend with the fella I was dating back then... but I can not remember what we did.

  • When I tuned 21 my friends took me bar hopping. Every bar here gives free drinks for a 21st birthday. So I was under the weather for a few days..haha

  • A couple friends and my now husband(boyfriend at the time) took me to dinner and I had a couple drinks. The next night we went to a piano bar and I got wasted. Not on purpose, but im a lightweight. A few Smirnoffs and I'm tipsy. lol. It was fun though.

  • Yes, have a drink or 2. You are only 21 once. I was pregnant with my first baby on my 21st birthday. We lived in Las Vegas. My inlaws took us to see a show, and I drank water. I hated the show, too, because my FIL was into the topless ones and I didn't appreciate them.
