I absolutely love being a mommy. There's nothing that makes me happier. Still, after having my first being that I was only 18 at the time I had a lot of growing up to do. When I turned 19 (legal drinking age here) I went to the bar with a bunch of my friends. Seeing as I hardly drank before that and I drank a lot (hell I was celebrating with my friends, having a good time and getting out of the house without the baby for once why not) too much actually. I was so sick that night.. haha. Anyway, my worst "bad mommy" moment would be the next day. I was so hung-over and watching my 9 month old baby alone. All I wanted to do was sleep but I couldn't. I spent most of the day on the couch while my son watched tv and played with his toys on the floor. I felt so bad about it afterward but it was all I could do at the time. Cleaned up after that. Sure I went drinking a couple of times but no where the amount I had that night. Now I'm 23 with 2 boys (5 yrs and 6.5 mos) and I hardly ever drink. I'm not saying it's terrible to drink just so long as the babies/kids are well taken care of.
The reason for this post is that maybe if we post some of our mistakes others might think twice about somethings they would do and hopefully not make them as well.
