  • Of course you get to have fun! Make sure your child(ren) is/are taken care of and go enjoy yourself. Even moms need to have fun.

  • Girl, enjoy yourself. Just don't get trashed. Once we become mothers, doesn't mean our social lives end.

  • I was pregnant on my 21st birthday, but I did go to the bar just because I could! I was the designated driver. :-)
    Just because you have a kid doesn't mean your life ends. Just find that happy middle ground.

  • Go and have fun! That's a big birthday!

  • I did. My mom watched my child for the night and my husband drove me around. I got trashed. You only turn 21 once and as long as you don't do it often there's nothing wrong with partying.

  • I had my first at 19. I did not go out for my 21st but only because I didn't want to, you are entitled to a life.

  • Go for it!

    Answer by jillisue808 at 1:08 PM on Jul. 2, 2010

  • YES! Responsible parents have every right to go out and have fun. Getting plastered drunk isn't neccisarily a good idea unless the kids are staying with Grandma overnight. However, going out have a couple drinks, dinner, a movie, a comedy club .. go at it, have fun!
