When you go out, and have your child(ren) with you, do you also have an alcoholic drink?

I was just wondering how many mothers go out to lunch/dinner/happy hour & have a drink, even if only one. (Drink & Drive responsibly) WHILE you have your kids with you.

  • I don't drink but I know parents who do have a drink while they are out with their children and then drive home. I think it's completely irresponsible. Why risk it?

  • Yes I have... but when I have a drink Hubby drives. When hubby has a drink, I drive.

  • Rarely I'll have one, and I'm not the one driving.

    My daughter is 3, and she knows we don't share drinks. She has no concept of what alcohol is. lol
