One of my best GFs has been sober for almost 8 years. I love her so much but lemme tell you about her presobriety......
I got phone calls because her child had a 103 degree fever and she couldn't drive them to the ER.
I got phone calls because her children were scared and wanted Auntie.
I got one phone call from her threatening suicide and her children were home.
So no, I don't get drunk around my kids as the only dependent adult. I have gone out with my husband and drank too much when he was the DD. I do NOT EVER take my children to adult drinking functions!! There are some things you have to give up as a parent. We ALL know that sh*t goes down when drinking starts. Especially if it has been brewing. My babies don't need to see that.
