how often do you drink?

Since becoming a parent, how often do you drink? Never? Sometimes? All the time? Do you wait for a night out, or have drinks at home after the kids go to bed?

  • Rarely. But I rarely drank before I had kids. In fact I didn't start drinking beer until 3 or 4 years ago. My husband likes to have a couple beers after work and sometimes I'll join him. We have no problem drinking in front of the kids so no need to wait until they are in bed.

  • I used to drink all the time, you know being young going out and having fun almost every night either at a bar or night club. However now that I am a mommy I never drink, In the almost 2 years since my son has been here I think I may have Drank 5 times at most.

  • I hate my daughter seeing me drunk and since i've been pregnant my tolerance has gone down and it only take a drink to get me drunk! I drink maybe a couple times a month...but i've had guests at the house and they drink a lot so I've been drinking so's wearing me out!!
