I’m a lightweight

                                           

Before I got pregnant you could often find me out at a popular bar on a Saturday night taking shots, drinking white wine or guzzling a cranberry vodka through a straw. After a night out, The Hubster and I, along with friends would go on a search for greasy food which for me always means grilled cheese and french fries.  I can tell you where I was, and who I was with the last time I got drunk prior to getting pregnant. Then when I found out I was pregnant alcohol was an obvious no-no. I didn’t crave alcohol during my pregnancy but it was more that I couldn’t have it that I wanted it.  Then once I had baby I attempted to breast feed so alcohol again was off-limits for me. Once I was done breast-feeding I knew I could have some wine.

I’ve had a few sips on occasion and a few Friday’s ago I sat at home while The Hubster was out at a work event, Princess Peach was asleep in her crib and I poured myself  a glass of wine. I’ve probably had about half a glass and I feel a buzz. Now getting to this bottle of wine was a feat in itself. Having moved 2 months ago we haven’t unpacked our 2 alcohol/liquor boxes yet because we really haven’t needed to. But Friday was a LONG day and stressful in the morning because Princess Peach smashed her face into the floor and her mouth started gushing blood. Then she took an afternoon nap that was over 2 hours! Now, I know it doesn’t sound stressful but she just started to sleep in the afternoons and I dont’ know how to judge how long she will sleep, or what to do with all this newfound time! I didn’t want to start anything because I feared she would wake up.

By 10:30 pm on a Friday and my eyes were half closed, a glass of white wine half-finished sat on the floor beside me and one of my favourite treat of chocolate chips fill a small bowl. My how my life has change and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My nice relaxing evening quickly diminished when Princess Peach woke up around 11 pm screaming. Those damn teeth are ruining my quiet evening along with my wine. Its a good thing I only took a few sips. Mommy duty calls.
