The Today show tackled the new terror plaguing our nation: day drinking mamas. According to expert Dr. Charles Sofie, modern moms have jobs, husbands and household responsibilities, and this "stress" is driving them straight to the bottle. The problem is, many of these margarita swilling moms get behind the wheel of the minivan after a few cocktails and put the lives of our nation's children in danger!!! Since they don't even use fake-y statistics, I'm guessing this entire thing is made up to keep moms from ever enjoying themselves without guilt. That said: don't drink and drive, ladies!
There was once a big bru-ha-ha about "Mommy Happy Hour" over on ParentDish (I stay away from over there now, I just always end up pissed off.) Someone did some story about moms who meet up for A (as in singular) cocktail at someone's house (with their young kids in tow) and people went nuts.
I'm pretty it was even made clear that they always had designated drivers but people went on an all out rampage about it.
I've been either pregnant or breastfeeding almost constantly over the last four years so have done no drinking since having children, but there have been times a nice chilled beverage would have gone down very well with this mama let me tell you...
