I was not trying to start a debate that seems to be getting heated [although you never know since the communication is through a computer].
Anyway, while i appreciate everyone's point of view in this (((((kk))))), i want to just state for the record that when i asked "is this bad?" it was more of a retorical question...lol...again with these computers! I KNOW getting sloppy drunk and watching kids is a BIG no-no...I don't feel having a relaxing glass of wine, while say, making dinner is bad [it takes tequila to get me wasted btw].
My post was really just to vent and to see if anyone else was in my shoes.
And HF, i'm sure that your incident with you dropping your child scared you enough to never touch alcohol while caring for a child, as it probably should have...I have never [God willing] dropped any of my boys because i have never been sloppy drunk and caring for them [usually if I'm partying with my hubby, they are spending the night at grandma's].
I just think that if having a glass of wine takes the edge off, i'll take that to being mean mommy, always yelling, and getting frustrated with them. I think THAT will do much damage, and they'll always remember me that way. I want them to have happy memories.
And, btw, i am currently on Wellbutrin which has been fabulous! I'm more calm, relaxed, happy and don't need that glass of wine...
