A friend of mine was telling me about how the last two times she went out with her husband there was a couple (same couple both times) at the same restaurant with their 2 small children. Both adults were drinking coronitas (large margaritas with corona turned upside down in them). There were no other adults present in their party and there is no public transporation in the area of town they were in.
Do you think this behavior is irresponsible or is it ok? Would you do it?
Would you ever drive with your kids in the car after consuming a large alcoholic drink (or any alcohol at all)?
The behavior is irresponsible, whether you have kids in the car or not. I would never do it, but DH and I rarely ever drink (he never drinks, and I may have 1 per year). I think 1 or 2 beers max for the driver is enough. If you drink any liquor or wine, then someone else needs to drive. I don't care how many times you say you are fine and you can drive perfectly, beleive me, you can't. Your judgement is impaired. Period. End of story.
My first response was going to be no because I don't drink and drive, but after thinking about it I remembed I took my kids to wing night across the street before and we all had wings and I had one mixed drink then I brought kids home to babysitter and SO and I went back for more drinks.
