A sobering look at the impact of Mom Likes to Drink jokes
"I definitely joke about a drink a lot more than I actually drink," Abby, a New Hampshire mom, told me in response to a question I posted on a mom message board. "My friends and I will get together for a play date and sometimes we mix up sangria or mimosas. There is always a ton left over though because the reality of it is, we all feel like drinking, but we are just too damn responsible and love our kids way too much to even be tipsy while they are in our care. But if you overheard us talking, you would think we were a bunch of lushes!"
