The original post for today was going to be a “delicious” (aka pretty) cocktail recipe to add to your Happy Hour rotation, or really just your board on Pinterest because let’s be honest who really makes fancy cocktails all that often?! I spent the afternoon photographing said cocktail (all with a super sick kiddo clinging to me) and when I was finished with my photos, I decided to take a sip of my labor of love because I thought I deserved it. So I took a big ol’ sip and it was GROSS. So gross in fact that I could not bring myself to share it with you.
Instead it made me angry…and got me thinking of a whole new post to bring you…..
REASONS MOMMIES DRINK.
#1 – When you spend time trying out a new recipe (food or beverage) and after all your hard work it tastes like garbage.
#2 – Never ending laundry
#3- Because Target for the third time in a week is exhausting
#4 – Your children were actually well behaved at the grocery store and you are counting that a big win
#5 – Moms Groups on Facebook (you know you have been in one at some point)
#6 – Family is visiting from out of town
#7 – Family just left
#8 – Your house is a mess as usual
#9 – Your house is clean for once
#10 – Aunt Flo is in town
#11 – It’s swimsuit season and you never lost those pesky last few/60 lbs
#12 – Your husband taped over your Bachelor recordings with Sports Center (doesn’t that come on like a bazillion times a day)
#13- You cooked dinner and everyone liked it
#14- You cooked dinner and everyone hated it
#15 – POTTY TRAINING
#16 – You accidentally left a marker on the table and your two year old found it and decided to make you a master piece….all over the carpet.
#17- Children’s Cartoons…the person who created Calliou should be locked in a room with one million children and forced to watch that horrid show on repeat 24/7
#18 – You remembered at 10pm on a Sunday Night that you are snack mom for school that week
#19 – It’s 5 o’clock somewhere
#20 thru Infinity – The Children and The Husband……they will always give you a reason…pinky promise.
What are some of the reasons that drive you to indulge in an adult beverage or two? And on that note…what is your go to drink?

Oh….I didn’t realize I needed a reason to drink…I just do it. 😉 hahahahaha! Love your list & sorry your original drink didn’t turn out right. I’m all over the board on my drink tastes….bloody mary, margarita on the rocks, vodka w/ grapefruit juice & vodka tonic w/ lime are my favorites though!
THIS!!!! Oh, and PA school. Ha!! Love this list so much. I was laughing and crying while I read this because it’s so accurate and it’s been one of those days and…I need a drink.
YEEESSSS to all of this!!! I drink because I don’t have a DVR. That’s a good reason, right?
Moscato! Whoop whoop!
