Maybe I should lay off the booze

We arrived at a friend's house late Friday afternoon for our playgroup's every-second-Friday tradition of pizza and play for the kids and drinks for the moms. I am the organizer of this particular aspect of our group, earning me the moniker "cocktail captain."

Anyway, we arrived and were just walking up to the table containing a steaming bowl of spiced apple cider alongside a variety of, er, "additives" to be added to the grown-ups' cups, when my charming daughter pipes up, "Mommy? Would you like a cocktail?"

Why, yes. Yes, I would.

I assume that should you and I ever be in the same mother's group that you would second my bringing champagne?

I think the women in my current group might just frown...

You should write a book on training a child so well. I'd like mine to make that offer each evening.


Does she know how to make a G&T?

Wow- you've trained your child to bartend your playgroup? (Bowing to the master).

Ahhh - the kiddy bartenders. I just took a fifth of vodka to our friend's house in the diaper bag...I agree with Geohde- we would have a great mother's group, LOL!

I'd like a martini, dear.

Love,

I'm so late getting to this... your daughter is ADORABLE.

I'm at a new site, by the way. You can access it from my profile. It's called What Skinny Jeans?

OMG, so glad to hear I am not alone re: Twilight.

Are you ever going to blog again?

Thank you for your comment on my pregnancy blog. It's nice to hear some success stories. I hope I can hold out for as long as you did with no cervix.
