Okay, well for this Momversation we had a guest who started the topic, Stefanie Wilder Taylor, blogger and author. Her books like Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay seem ironic now that she says she has a problem with drinking.
As often happens we ran out of time with Momversation, so many broads saying interesting stuff. One of the things I really wanted to know from Stefanie, who I like, is if part of the reason you drank was because of a feeling of loneliness and isolation, which she said, then how do you handle that now? Because as we all know, that can be part and parcel of being a mom, especially with small children. Maybe someone else who has been through this can fill me in. I think Stephanie is very brave to share this with all since it is a public turnabout for her.
I couldn’t be virtuous in this piece as not only do I enjoy being mildly intoxicated now and then my husband (and since this is a community property state then me too) is set to open a cocktail bar this fall. Moms welcome.
One of my goals is to not have a problem with drinking so I don’t have to stop, as I really like wine and the occasional cocktail. Is that a contradiction?
